Kakigori in Ishikawacho

Kakigori-Ten Komomo, a shaved ice specialty store in Ishikawa-machi, offers shaved ice that gradually changes flavors while taking advantage of the ingredients. There are six regular menu items: "Komochan", "Pistachigo", "Matcha Mascarpone", "Orange-scented Salted Caramel", "Grain-an Nuchimasu Miruku", and "Grain-an Maccha". Other seasonal menu items are also available, which change according to the season. The ice is made with high purity and frozen slowly over a long period of time, so it is soft and fluffy and does not cause headaches. In addition, a variety of ingredients are added, so the taste changes as you continue eating. It is the kind of shaved ice that allows you to discover new tastes. The sauce is also homemade, so it takes a lot of time and effort to make. The most popular item on the signature menu is the "Komochan" made with domestic strawberries. The most popular among fans is the "Orange-scented Salted Caramel," which is a combination of homemade caramel sauce and orange-scented Grand Marnier.Google Map > https://goo.gl/maps/5Spbk7q5GwnQhFtX9
