When beating the heat, I will search everywhere for an ice cream to beat the heat, but normally I gravitate towards your standard flavors. I’ll take a strawberry or vanilla and when I’m feeling adventurous maybe one of the limited edition flavors at Salt & Straw. Tokyo ramen chain has announced their latest flavor of shaved ice: ramen and I can’t help, but wonder what its ingredients are! Should we expect sesame oil, green onions, a hint of corn?
Turns out I’m wrong entirely and the format is not what you would expect. Instead of your standard shaved ice, this one replaces the thinly shaved water you’re used to for frozen miso ramen broth. Underneath it, sits a bed of noodles. Surprise! To top it off, you can add chashu pork, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots. This special shaved ice is available now at Bankara locations and is being sold for $8 USD.
