Oyodo, Kita “shave ice cafe”

Totally satisfaction from this tasty and fun joint with a comfortable atmosphere!

I had dinner at the “shave ice cafe“, a hot-pot restaurant in south Oyodo.
With over ten different soups and numerous kinds of dips, you can surely have a blast with your friends at this place that offers a huge variety of flavors to enjoy!
Aside from their hot pots is an a la carte menu with lots too choose from with the Matsuzaka pork dumplings being the most popular item!
“Original Gyoza” (¥380)

(゚Д゚)Yummy!(゚Д゚)Yummy!

Unbelievably good!
A crispy and fragrant outside with a juicy and sweet Mastusaka pork filling. Delicious!

As you can see, they have many different dips available!
For these dips, just take whatever you like from the pot, add some dip to it and enjoy. What fun it is to be able to try so many different flavors (^^

m00104-03-min

They also have “Dip Gyoza”, dumplings that use these dips as a filling!
“Dip Gyoza Tofu Cheese” (¥430)
Although the dip is already inside, they also spread it on the outside so you can tell what flavor it is!

(゚Д゚)Yummy!(゚Д゚)Yummy!

It’s so good!
The added tender flavor of cheese makes it twice as delicious!

This is apparently a newly developed soup for the hot pot. They let me have a little taste!
If you order this hot pot, this soup comes out along with dipping sauce and spices. Then, you can choose what you like from a number of ingredients to be cooked in the soup.
They only charge for the ingredients, which means that the soup, sauce, and spices come free!
What an insane bargain for this hot pot!

With a spacious interior and a cleanly, cafe style atmosphere, a female customer on her own would feel comfortable coming in. They’ve even written “welcoming groups of one”, making it easy to come on in (^^
Be it one person, or with a big group of people, this is a wonderful place where I believe everyone will be satisfied by the delicious food!
And I think I might just have to stop by again!
