For a tropical country like the Philippines, shaved iced desserts are not a stranger to our taste buds. From saging con yelo, mais con yelo, and the very famous halo-halo, we’ve tried it all just to endure the summer heat. No wonder why SHARI SHARI decided to open their latest branch here in the Philippines.
Kakigori is a japanese term for shaved ice hence, SHARI SHARI–an onomatopoeia for shaved ice. SHARI SHARI recently opened at G/F Serendra, McKinley Parkway, Bonifacio Global City and it offers staple dessert flavors. From a wide variety of matcha to seasonal fruits, shari shari just have the right flavors that will surely make your taste buds say ‘no chill’ *wink wink*.
One of the bestsellers is their Matcha Cream Special with Chocolate (380 php)— a mountain of feathery ice hugged by their vibrant-green Matcha cream syrup, the ever-present chocolate cream syrup with that oreo cookies surprise inside and finally topped with a dollop of whipped cream and mint leaf that will surely steal a spot in your instagram feed.
Another is the Earl Grey Milk Tea (360 php) (I know. MILK TEA!) this black-tea variant will surely calm your senses and refresh your mood. It’s perfect if you want to cleanse your palate for another round with another flavor (yes please).
coffee lovers, heads up because their Tiramisu (320 php) is coming for ya! just look at that finely shaved ice draped with milk syrup and coffee cake generously dusted with cocoa powder and topped with whipped cream. I’ll say take it easy if you don’t want to choke in the cocoa powder like I did.
Now this is special. Their Sakura with Matcha Kakigori (380 php) is something you surely wouldn’t like to miss. Taste the floral notes of Sakura from japan and just after a few scoops, the earthy taste of Matcha that is imported directly from Kyoto! Just don’t forget to look for their signature cookie bits buried somewhere in your bowl to make it extra special. This is available for a limited time only so I suggest you be on your way to BGC after reading this blog.
If you’re tired with all that sweetness then have a Strawberry and Mikan Orange (350 php) to cap your experience. Your shaved ice coated with strawberry syrup and topped with mikan orange won’t disappoint you. Its strong fruity flavor will surely will surely wake your senses and for added flavor, I suggest you order chocolate syrup with it.
Aside from these flavors, Shari Shari also offers different variants exclusive to Manila with Manila’s local fruits and each for a limited time, or at least, when it is during harvest season. Shari Shari also offers flavors which are dairy-free so those with lactose intolerance need not worry.
