Sent to fuwa-fuwa heaven! Tokyo-based Sakanoue Cafe’s pop-up came at a perfect time as I was in somewhat of a post-travel blues (and there because everyone who's anyone has already visited the place). I got their Friday (3rd March) daily special, Pistachio Raspberries Kakigori ($13), and boy did it deliver. Delicately nutty, with pops of tanginess and sweetness, the bowl of shaved ice was so light and delicious. The milk syrup-doused ice was not too sweet and just simply melts in the mouth as it was so fine as well as fluffy. However, the best part was certainly the magically distinctive pistachio espuma which was mildly aromatic, airy yet creamy. The combination of the slightly piquant raspberry syrup stewed in wine, cookie crumbles, and the bits of crunchy sweet-tart raspberry pearl chocolates placed at the very top also worked well together - really well-balanced.

Limited to 200 each day until 9 March, be sure to check their Instagram stories and go early to get the flavour of your choice~
