(I was going to title this post “False Advertising”, but that sounded too serious…)
It was a bloody hot arvo extrapolated by a faulty air-con blowing 32 degree celsius wind in my face.
Made worse, I can hear annoying jerky voices in my head screaming, “Shaved ice, Shaved ice, I want ’em now!” To pacify my inner demons, I headed over to Tong Pak Fu (not to be confused with Stephen Chow’s movie with the same namesake). Although I know that Tong Pak Fu is a Hong Kong franchise, I had never bothered to visit its HQ in HK.
See this? This picture on the menu of Tracka Durian Shaved Ice got my attention and I ordered a regular (RM11.90)
What arrived at my table was this… Notice anything different from the photo menu?
Where are my Corn flakes?!
Why are the accompaniments are different too?!
I got a weird combo of spherified lychee bubbles, black, red and yellow grass-jellies which I left untouched.
STILL, the durian shaved ice was a velvety delight. Smooth and creamy, which I no doubt will come back for more (giving the condiments a miss).
Let me present you with the menu… if you are not inclined to durians, there are guava, orange and mango shaved ice flavours too.
