At this ramen and kakigori joint, owner Naoki Saito is something of a shaving specialist. He used to plane surfboards by hand before moving on to ice and surf’s loss is definitely kakigori’s gain. While most kakigori places just pile on the ice, Saito creates his icy heap with a hollow centre to keep it from melting too quickly. The café is famous for its housemade condensed milk, which is drizzled on to form the base for your chosen topping. Experimentalists should opt for pistachio cassis, strawberry espuma or avocado caramel.
