Hello! Ok excuse my lame pun in the title… I met up with some of my former co-workers for dinner at Sushi Bella and then we went to Icy Bar for dessert! Icy Bar is a shaved ice and dessert cafe similar to Mango Yummy in Richmond but Icy Bar has been around for a lot longer. They also have locations in Richmond but the one we went to was on Kingsway.
You can get 8 toppings on your shaved ice for $8 or 4 toppings for $6.50. We decided to get two of the 4 topping shaved ice. If you order the 8 topping option, they’ll give you more ice in proportion to all the toppings. Or that’s what it looked like when I saw other tables ordering it.
The best part about Icy Bar is that they give you your own squeeze tube/bottle of condensed milk!!! WE USED A LOT. We practically drank it but it was awesome! =D Usually they charge you more for condensed milk.
We also ordered a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side for $2. It melted super fast… wasn’t the best ice cream and I’m not sure why I got it on the side and not on top… but they offered to give it to me on the side so I was like ok. I don’t think I would need ice cream next time anyway so I can save $2!
By the way, the ice is not flavoured but the texture was good. The toppings were all delicious and came with a generous amount. Nothing to complain about! I bet all the condensed milk we dumped on it helped!
It’s also a nice place to hang out with friends here! The store is not super tiny like Mango Yummy so it’d be a lot easier to get a table. They also serve drinks, tofu pudding and hot soup desserts.
