Easily one of our best discoveries of this latest trip was Mount Lam Lam Sno n’ Ice Cream. We were scootering back from our 1000 Steps Trail hike, hot as the dickens and thirsty as all get out, when a sign advertising “shave ice turn right ok” called out like a beacon to me. The line was long and moved slowly and we were serenaded by the same three J-pop songs on repeat while we waited, but it was WELL worth the wait.
I got just a standard shave ice with coconut and li hing mui. The flavor was true-to-life and so, so sweet. Marshall got our first experience with halo halo. We had to watch another woman eating hers before we realized that you were supposed to stir it around very thoroughly before eating, but it was still mighty tasty.
The shop is in a little courtyard/circle area with a school, a library, and a convenience store but there are signs on the street to direct you into there.
