Shaved Ice at Cold Layers

Cold Layers-Something Cheezy
After lunch at Yumemiya Japanese Cafe we tried out the new dessert place at Northeast Square called Cold Layers.

Not really dessert but these dried mushroom cookies were sold in the store.

The shaved ice was similar to Lugang Cafe’s version but pushed another notch higher. For one Cold Layers had more flavors and toppings and sauces were added to create several shaved ice concoctions. Out of the 4 kinds we tried my favorite was the seemingly strange creation called Something Cheezy made with the unlikely combination of cheese snow ice, matcha powder and chocolate syrup.

There was something comforting about eating slightly salty, slightly sweet cheese flavored super smooth snowy ice (say that fast 5x). And yes cheese, chocolate and matcha tasted good together.

Tease Me was made of lychee flavored snow ice, canned lychee and almond pudding. It was just ok for me. Not as yummy as Something Cheezy.

I don’t even remember what this tasted like.

Chocolate Lovers was simply chocolate flavored snow ice with chocolate syrup. I liked this the least. The chocolate taste was very mild and watery.

The flavored ice was shaved very finely and layer upon layer was piled into a  bowl. It took a long time for the compact ice to melt. That’s probably why Cold Layers has delivery service too.

I enjoyed dessert at Cold Layers. Snow ice is light, fat free and quite a satisfying change from ice cream.
