“Garuru Ice” in Tengo Nakazaki Shopping Street

A shaved ice store run by a popular cafe is opening!

I took a visit to the shaved ice store “Garuru Ice”, that opened on April 3rd 2016 (Sunday)!
Shaved ice was, obviously, the only thing on the menu, and there were 5 different kinds to choose from.

Sakura fluffy foam ‎(¥950)
A limited edition for spring, you can eat this whilst looking out the window at the cherry blossoms.


So delicious!
The cherry blossom scented fluffy foam is the perfect match for the light ice. The sweetness and subtle sourness of yogurt blend together, and is totally delicious!


Drip Coffee Tiramisu (¥900)
Typical of a cafe that sells amazing coffee!


So delicious!
This is so tasty – the umami of the mascarpone goes exquisitely with the luxurious coffee!


Strawberry Fromage (¥900)


So delicious!
The blend of strawberries, milk, and cheese tastes so good!


Caramel Pumpkin Cream (¥850)
My friend ate this one.
The sweetness of the pumpkin, and the sweetness of the caramel, is such a nice combination. Even if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you’ll still scoff it down!


They have 5 kinds of shaved ice.



It’s such a fresh, lovely place!

Outside the window in front of the center-most counter, there’s a park. Although it’s only in the spring, it’s great to eat your exquisite shaved ice whilst looking at the blossoming flowers!
It’s a brilliant location!

Looks like shaved ice will be pretty popular this summer!
