This Summer Heat Demands Some of Tokyo Tokyo’s Salted Caramel Snow Ice

March 16, 2020

I love Tokyo Tokyo. It is seriously one of my favorite food chains, and it deserves to be one of the most popular ones around. I’ve had way too much Beef Misono that my biological chemistry is probably 50% of their Japanese beef. In the world of fast eats, they manage to stay current and update their menu often to keep their diners on their toes. They’ve introduced their own ramen during the craze, hotdogs when customers were looking for merienda, and breakfast items for those who wake up early for work or school.


One of my favorite items of theirs right now is their Snow Ice—a delectable concoction that’s perfect any time of the year, especially during these summer months. They had a vanilla shaved ice before, but recently, they’ve introduced a salted caramel variation that will undoubtedly increase my visits to any of their branches. Inspired by Japan’s love of Snow Ice or Kakigori during festival season, these bowls of icy goodness are a dessert best shared with friends after a huge meal, or kept all to yourself, like I would.


Tokyo Tokyo’s Salted Caramel Snow Ice folds the flavor into the ice, so that every spoonful tastes of the dark, rich flavors of caramel, and the consistency of the ice crystals are packed together so tightly that the ice is almost as smooth as ice cream. Nutty Caramel is my personal favorite, taking the salty-sweet combination further with salted nuts, caramel fudge and whipped cream. If you love combining breakfast with dessert, Choco Cornflakes should be your pick, dressed with generous chocolate sauce and corn flakes.

If you’re looking for an alternative to your favorite icy halo-halo or the now ubiquitous Korean bingsoo, Tokyo Tokyo’s Salted Caramel Snow Ice is an affordable alternative—that’s seriously decadent and delicious, too.
