Add a tropical twist to your dessert at Kek Seng! Durian (a.k.a “The King of Fruits”) takes ice cream form on their Ais Kachang (“iced beans”). Two scoops join pudding, grass jelly, red beans, and corn on a bed of milky crushed ice. The entire bowl is good enough for two people, though this is one dessert you’ll want all to yourself! Indulge in an extra order of durian ice cream for an creamy treat. Careful not to scarf down everything too quickly, though—you might get a brain freeze!
On a street where alcohol overflows at the bars, Yelo is serving up something different from their narrow counter. Heaping snowballs keep this corner of the Roppongi district frosty whatever the season. Sweet—and sometimes colorful—syrup seeps into the delicate ice, which is pleasantly fluffy and refreshing. Pick from a spectrum of flavors, from Green Tea to Sweet Corn, but we already know what you’re getting!
Everyone at Asakusa Naniwaya will naturally gravitate toward the appetizing snowballs. While they’re distracted, hoard a school’s worth of fish-shaped desserts stuffed with sweet red beans called Taiyaki! Any local will tell you that green tea and red beans always go together perfectly, so order your Taiyaki with a cup of delicious matcha. It’s a classic flavor combo that will never let you down!
