Masatami Shave Ice

Note: This branch is already closed. 
 


After our lunch at Kangaroo Jack, I dragged my friend to Masatami Shave Ice so I could use the GCs Richie gave me during our Zark's meet-up. (Thanks Richie!)

Fortunately, I was given two GCs of their bestsellers, so I was able to share a free dessert with a friend. :)



Shave Ice is a common dessert in some Asian countries like Taiwan, China and Malaysia. Actually, Filipinos also share the same love for shaved ice, we have halo-halo, mais con hielo, and one of my street favorites: ice scramble. :)


Masatami Shave Ice offers Hawaiian Shave Ice and Flavored Shave Ice, available in various flavors. They also have sugar-free syrups and liquor syrups. I haven't tried it before but the staff was very patient with assisting us (thumbs up!)

We had a large Buko Pandan Shave Ice with Azuki Beans, Pearls and Nata de Coco (Php 109).

It's one of their bestselling flavored shave ice with some of the add-ons. It almost has an ice cream-like consistency,  something I really like. But I only had some of it, since it was my friend's dessert. :P

What I had was a large Rainbow Hawaiian Shave Ice with Snow Cap, Azuki Beans and Vanilla Ice Cream (Php 93).

It has three syrups: Strawberry, Banana and Bubble Gum, which gives a rainbow effect to the shave ice. The Azuki Beans and Vanilla Ice Cream are at the bottom and the sweet Snow Cap is on top. I loved it! I got really giddy when I saw it. I enjoyed eating it, as any child would. :) It was too huge for me though, I guess I should have shared some to my friend. Haha.

I'd definitely go back to Masatami Shave Ice. They have other flavors that I'd really love to try, like the Swiss Cheese and Peanut Flavored Shave Ice. No need to wait for summer for wonderful and cool desserts like this.

  7. I recently tried swiss cheese it was sooo good! I also tried the ones you had, Buko Pandan is more to my liking because I find the rainbow thingy too sweet.

  10. I just saw this in the Ultimate Taste Test and tried two of their flavors, peanut and Swiss cheese. The latter was so heavenly I was able to finish it kahit sobrang busog na ko nung mga panahong yun. I'm now curious about their pandan flavor, mukhang masarap eh.
