A Japanese food connoisseur who had recommended me the great horsemeat and uni pasta at Fregoli, has tipped me off to this new hot ice cream Parlour in Ebisu.
It's not just another ice cream shop in the neighborhood. Karinto, Shiso Cream Cheese, Houjicha, Kurogoma, Sakura komame salty Sakura pickles , Kinako Kuromitsu, Kabocha , Melon Kakigori, Kokutou Houjicha...These are all Japanese flavours that you (can)not find elsewhere.
Black Sesame, Shiso Cream Cheese and KarintoOne can choose 3 flavours for the smallest size of ¥390, which is very a good way to draw customers in.
It's so good I went back for more:) Matcha, Kabocha and Tomato Sherbet.
And the best thing is that every order comes with free konbu flakes.
Those sour and salty pickles helped to treat any post-ice cream syndrome such as "jelat-ness" or "too much sweet stuff", which I don't face fortunately. Haha...but it's a definitely a welcome move.
Under the scorching heat of 36 degrees Celsius, the Bear Kakigori is a great remedy as it is cute and delicious, chasing away all the irritating mood caused by the weather. There are four varieties and this is the simplest and most popular one-- 白蜜.
This place is really popular so don't be surprise to stand/sit elbow to elbow with other customers if you are planning to eat inside the cramp, stuffy area.
