manhattan shave ice
This week's nytimes brought up one of my most favourite treats-Shave Ice. Heading in on Saturday and I'm wondering if any of you all know where to go...looking for some new & old flavors.
Neighborhoods where there is a large Latin contingent, e.g., Bway in the 140's or Delancey St.
Just today I had the green tea shave ice from Koryodang in Ktown 31 W 32nd St
(between 5th Ave & Broadway).
They put a scoop of green tea ice cream on top, which I didn't love until I blended it with the ice, but it came with fruit, mochi and red bean, which was great. The texture, as the article says, was light/dry -- exactly as it should be.
They also had coffee and strawberry (I think).

re: squid kun
I'm still going thru their menu. There are clear weaknesses, the pancit bihon was so terrible I had to apologize to my guest for having him order it.. The appetizers and food (pulutan) one would have with booze, however, are pretty good, i.e. sisig, lumpia, etc. I've noticed some growing pains, at least I hope they're "growing pains" and not just poor kitchen planning, but I am hopeful they will have some longevity because right now they are a solid stop for pulutan and happy hour in a very good location. Where else can you get deep fried pork shanks and a San Mig on St. Mark's?
