It is art work ! Not simple shaved ice !
I went to Ginza after work to buy farewell gift for co-worker last friday.
An fashonable woman in the office said, “A senbei shop at Ginza serves good kakigori :D”.I thought why she say such a strange thing 🙁
Senbei shop serves kakigori ? Good kakigori ? No kidding. But I treated her well with saying “OK, I’ll drop in at the shop if I have time :).”
Well, I walked to Ginza from my office. About 20 minutes. I felt so muggy, and I wanted to cool myself at anywhere.
I remembered the Senbei shop.
The senbei shop is near Wako building, and face main street.So shop itself was striking. I could find easily.
But its tea room didn’t being striking. I went upstairs besides the shop. Well this shop isn’t striking, too. What striking is shop’s sign 😛
This shop’s name is Matsuzaki Senbei.
Tea room had only two visitors.
It was so quiet that I couldn’t believe street noises outside 🙂
Though I teetered between cool shiruko and kakigori, I ordered
Uji-Kintoki Kakigori(宇治金時, 1000 yen). Because it was so hot. And, With Shiratama (白玉, +100 yen) 😀
What angles best for the kakigori ? It had unusual view.
It was sharp looking, but it was soft and melted in my mouth 😉
Three shiratama 🙂 It was sticky. Of course, not frozen 😛
Recently I learned to eat tsubu-an (paste containing pieces of azuki beans skin)
Uji-maccha had not much sugar 🙂 I got “sugar” by anko besides .
I prefer anko being besides kakigori like it to on kakigori.
