[Food] Ice Monster, Taiwan | The Fresh Ice Mango Shave to Crave

Mango Ice Shave is my absolute favorite but badly, I couldn't really find many in Malaysia. Sad but true! I remembered there's only two mango ices will be my currently pick in Malaysia which are from Big Bowl (but is at Melaka) and OW:L Espresso Cafe (it's Korean type of ice shave).

I know Taiwan is famous with ice shave especially fruits shave. Main reason is because they produce quality fruits. I eat many fruits shave in Taiwan no matter in stall, night market or even in shop. Every of them are so yum but Ice Monster is the best fruit shave I tried ever in Taiwan. Besides that, it very recommended by online and travel book as well.

How can I miss this? Hahaha  d=( ̄▽ ̄*)b

Let's make Taipei Main Station as center. Taking blue lines to Sun Yat-San Memorial Hall Station "国服纪念馆" (NT$16) and go to Exit No.1 (there's many exit). When you see bank around, means you take the right way. Walk approximately 2 to 3 mins and you see Ice Monster. *refer google map below*

Ice Monster was pretty noticeable, it's between the shop. Before reaching Ice Monster, you will see Hello Kitty souvenir shops, you might stop there to pay a visit first, lol. Ice Monster is just two or three shops after Hello Kitty Souvenir shop. When you reach there, you will smell a pretty heavy ginger scent around (it's ginger shop as base of traditional dessert) means you're reach. Pretty easy to find unless you walk to wrong route.

新鮮芒果綿花甜 | Fresh Ice Mango Shave, (NT$220 for summer / NT$250 for winter), a fresh purely ice shave with mango ice cream, mango cube and soft traditional tofu. Sweet, soft, a little sour, cold and fresh all in one bit. Love love love! Major love of this ice shave. It's pretty big potion as well.

大四喜 Double Happiness (NT$80), four different flavors of taro ball with brown sugar glaze and peanut. Comes with ginger soup to dip as well. Big potion that only cost me around MYR8+ approximately. Super cheap and definitely can't find in Malaysia. Chewy and pretty traditional kinda like tang yuan.

I only eat two desserts in Ice Monster because after this meal, I went to Dazzling Cafe for next round. It's cost me NT$330 with no additional charge. Cute and pretty ambiance environment, beautiful presentation, fresh and lovely dessert and yummy! If you visit Ice Monster on summer time, they even have some limited dessert special for summer. :)
