Being from Hawaii,we’re used to the fine shaving of shaved ice and various toppings. However, Ice Monster takes it a step forward. They actually freeze the flavors into the ice so that the taste is uniform throughout the dish. Holy Hannah! And they augment it...More

Despite the cool and wet weather, we still ventured to Ice Monster to try its desserts. We had mango shaved ice, for which it is renowned, and also "tong yuan" - soft glutinous rice balls with a black sesame paste floating in a ginger broth.

Recommended by a new local friend to have after dinner dessert. I ordered the original mango flavor, and the friend ordered almond flavored. OMG, other than the mountainous size, the mango flavor was so sharp. I tried the almond one, it's even better and less...More

Wow the texture of these icy desserts is incredible! So much smoother and sillier than Hawaiian shaved ice. It is like nothing I've had before! Tried mango, kiwi and the almond/sesame and my favorite was the almond/sesame which was even creamier in texture than the...More

Wow!!! Must try!!! I ordered the featured mango ice that comes with fresh mangos. It did not disappoint. Granted, these things are intimidating, however, once you dive in you'll see that it disappears quickly. Word of warning: beware of the brain freeze from eating it...More

It's in a great location next to the mall. It's very tasty though some of the local neighborhood shops have even more scrumptious shaved ice and more generous with the fresh fruits.

When it came out to my table I was sure I would never eat it all...15 minutes later I had a clean bowl. So light and refreshing in the hot Taipei afternoon. Service was quick and restaurant was clean.
