Originally a summer-only dessert at the soba shop upstairs, the kakigori at this Sakura-Shinmachi joint proved so popular that the owners decided to rent an extra space just for the purpose of serving deluxe shaved ice. Their innovative flavour combinations include the popular 'strawberry cheese' and the curious 'summer pumpkin caramel', but the star of the show is the seasonal 'watermelon'. The beautiful creation features a compote of watermelon and syrup on top, while deliciously sweet watermelon pieces can be found further down. They even give you a special watermelon spoon, but we were too busy appreciating the flavours to notice any difference.
