Summer Trend ~ Kakigori (かき氷)

Hi Everyone! There's a little story from me.
Yesterday, Me and my friend are going to a mall to hangout and do something.
Before that, we went to her university because she had something to do.
I didn't know that the university held a bazaar!
So much food stand in there such Pizza Marzano, Calais, Cold's Stone Creamery,
and many more.

Waittt... There's an interesting stand! What is that?

JAPANESE THINGS! There's SUSHI (My fave) and other compliment.
Yes, that is KAKIGORI!
Japan's famous summer trend must try! and, it's in INDONESIA!
Me and my friend very curious about that and we ordered it =D

Q: What is Kakigori?
A: Based on Wiki, Kakigōri (かき氷) is a Japanese shaved ice dessert flavored 
with syrup and condensed milk.
Popular flavors include strawberry, cherry, lemon, green tea, grape, melon, "Blue Hawaii," sweet plum, and colorless syrup. 

Some shops provide colorful varieties by using two or more different syrups. 
To sweeten kakigōri, condensed milk is often poured on top of it.

In addition to the streets, kakigōri is sold in festivals, convenience stores, 
coffee shops, and restaurants. 
During the hot summer months, kakigōri is sold virtually everywhere in Japan. 
Some shops serve it with ice cream and sweetened red beans and tapioca pearls. 
Often condensed milk is used to cap it.

You can see the menu here: (The name of the shop is called RAKUEN)
As you can see there's a lot of flavor that you can choose!
Each flavor had emoticon. Cute enough.
And this is what we ordered! Only 10K!

Flavors: Red Blossom (Rose), Lychees, and Caramel
Topping: Nata de Coco and Choco Chips

Although this is just an ice but it made us fresh because yesterday is ridiculously hot!
Curious enough? Try it! HAHAHA I wanna taste another flavor!
And, after some chat we went to the mall :P

My Review

Price Rating: $ (Cheap enough, I think)
Taste: 5/10 (Normal ice with some syrup and topping)
Ambience: -/10 (Cannot describe because it's just a stand) 
Service: 8/10 (Really nice! They're give some recommendation)

That's all folks ^^

Sayōnara! Mata o ai shimashou!

Note: They're 100% my opinion. All photos taken by me.
