One of my favorite summer dessert “Kaki-Gori”. Kaki-Gori means shaved ice which is served with flavored syrup. This is very typical classic kaki-gori in Japan called “Uji Kintoki”. This Japanese style old cafe add 8 shiratama balls (white/green colored which was made by glutinous rice flour) , house cooked red bean jam, vanilla ice cream. The shaved ice was mixed with green tea matcha powder and simple sugar syrup. It’s really refreshing to have this dessert in the hot summer day. But it’s getting cold while we eat this in the strong air-conditioned cafe…so I recommend to try this with hot tea together.
When you will have chance to be in Japan during summer, check this at the old style Japanese cafe. They must have similar one like this. Most of the place, you can customized and enjoy favorite combination with/without red bean jam, ice cream.
