      Thanks, that might be E. Jackson. It's in the heart of Japantown. I was in the neighborhood yesterday (not a shave ice) day), and had to settle for some fresh tofu from San Jose Tofu and a bowl of ramen.

        That's sad. I know it's not the same but didn't another place on Jackson (across the street) start serving shaved ice?

          I noticed the Shooting Star Cafe (HK dessert-type place in Oakland Chinatown) had shave ice.

            I believe it's a seasonal thing. If the owners stick around until next year, you should see it next summer.

      2. That's the place...I'm not a shave ice expert but I really like it. I had a once a week habit last summer (as well as picking up a shuei-do or two)...trying not to outgrow my pants this summer so haven't been around as much.
        I like it with the beans and milk best. I usually see high school kids working the shave counter; I assume that's why they have limited hours.
        Banana Crep (across the street) does shave ice but I don't like it- I'd skip the ice completly.
        If you get a chance, please do's such a special little sweet shop...the ladies at the counter are so helpful (and cute and little! :)).
