Many come here for the “mango avalanche” — shaved ice smothered in cubes of fresh mangoes, condensed milk, mango sorbet and syrup. It is named one of the world’s best desserts by CNN and literally a carnival of flavors and texture. A wonderful news for those who are visiting as a group: Ice Monster offers a monstrous portion, big enough for two, if not three. For solo travelers and those who are on the go, fruit popsicles will be a delight.
At night markets, street stalls and shops all around the island, you will find people of all ages enjoying a refreshing bowl of shaved ice piled high with fresh ingredients in the subtropical heat as it is a summer ritual in Taiwan. With modernist design, plush seats and air conditioning, Ice Monster has brought this street delight to a whole new level, whose sheer popularity is reflected in the crowds queuing up for a taste of this perfect summertime treat.
