You know the kakigori obsession is real when we can’t wait to shaved ice on a cold and rainy morning! I know a lot of people rave about this place but we are not one of them. Can’t appreciate this kinako kuromitsu with shoyu; the latter overwhelms the kinako fragrance and kuromitsu sweetness. Skip.

This kinako kuromitsu kakigori is my first in Tokyo and oh dear, my obsession with kakigori has officially started. We want to eat the best so that Matchaya can produce a worthy version in Singapore.

I have a terrible sweet tooth but I try to find “healthier” alternatives most of the time. Like dairy-free ice cream, or agave-sweetened desserts. They make me feel better about inhaling sugar haha. Finally found something not so sinful at Gelateria Tie-An. They do soy versions and apparently the bestseller has edamame in it. Too funky for me though; I’ll stick to my usual dark chocolate, matcha (can skip the one here), and kinako kuromitsu. The kinako kuro is very good! More intense and much better than Pariya’s.

Ooooo glad I found Pariya パリヤ, a gelato place I like! Picked dark chocolate (always!) and kinako kuromitsu; that tiny glob you see there is almond coffee. Before handing the cup to you, the staff will ask whether you want to try any other flavour so you get a mini serving of the desired flavour, so cute! P.S. Pariya is also the supplier of salads at Cityshop Deli, +++ points because I’m a fan!
