Monzen-nakacho : Apricot kakigori at Irie (いり江)

Kakigori with cream and apricot, Irie (Monzen-nakacho) Tokyo

Kakigori at kanmidokoro of temple town

The weather is so muggy everyday. It feel I’m in sauna 🙁
I heard some kakigori shop have very long long line in front of those shops. In such a muggy air under the blazing sun !

I dropped in at Japanese-style cafe the other day. Somehow there were much vacant seats.
This shop also sell kakigori during summer season 🙂


Appearance, Irie (Monzen-nakacho)


Irie is ordinary traditional Japanese-style sweets cafe.

At first, I didn’t intend to eat kakigori because I felt chill and I wanted to eat anmitsu.
But when I got into the shop, the shop was so warm. Maybe, there are many people ordering kakigori, so they controlled the temperature higher in the shop on purpose.
So, I also felt like eating kakigori 😛

Kakigori with ice cream and apricot (氷クリームあんず) 780 yen

Kakigori with cream and apricot, Irie (Monzen-nakacho)


Only one slice of apricot on it as garnish, but there were another three slices of apricot under the shaved ice 🙂

Before eating, I took the picture for a minutes, and then the spoon was frozen and attached to the ice in the interim 😛
It was very hard for me to take the spoon in safe. I managed to take the spoon. But I was very nervous that the ice and ice cream would fall down.

The kakigori was tasty, but I should have ordered shiratama by additions.

By the way, by the time I got out of the cafe, there were many people in the cafe. I was lucky 😀
