Satisfy your craving with light and fluffy shaved ice at Locanda in the Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store!
If you ever find yourself craving for some fluffy shaved ice in the Osaka metropolis of Umeda, I’d like to recommend to you Locanda.
You can find this shop on the 12th floor—the restaurants floor—of the Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store.
The store features a chic and fashionable interior design.
Lucky for me, a window seat was available so I was led to a table with a full view of the event plaza on the 9th floor.
My target for today is shaved ice.
There are three types of fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth shaved ice you can enjoy in Locanda.
・Summer Tree (¥780, tax-exclusive)
・Ujikintoki (Uji Green Tea with Red Beans) (¥720, tax-exclusive)
・Tiramisu (¥680, tax-exclusive)
I was also interested in their special menu, but this time, I decided to order the two shaved ice flavors below.
Tiramisu shaved ice.
Summer Tree shaved ice.
First, I’ll try only the ice itself.
The snow-like, light and fluffy, melt-in your-mouth quality is amazing.
The sweetness of milk slowly and gradually spreads throughout your mouth.
Next up is pouring the espresso on the ice to complete the Tiramisu flavor.
The milky ice was a superb match for the slightly bitter espresso.
I was surprised at its immediate transformation from shaved ice that children can enjoy to a shaved ice truly for adults.
This is an adult’s shaved ice that I’d recommend to people who like coffee.
I think it would also be a good thing to try for men who don’t like sweets.
Next, I shall try the Summer Tree shaved ice.
It has the same fluffy ice as its base, generously topped with fresh fruits.
Time to take a bite!
The snow-like ice cling to the fresh and juicy fruits and the milky flavor combines with their sweet and sour taste.
Hidden within is some berry sauce. This is truly a lovely shaved ice that lets you enjoy various flavors up until the last spoonful.
That was delicious. Such wonderful desserts!
Locanda is a lovely cafe where you can enjoy pancakes and other sweets. The addition of soft and fluffy shaved ice to its menu adds even more to its charm.
