Blockheads Shavery has an option where you could create your own shave ice from a selection of ingredients. Just select a flavor, a drizzle, and a few toppings and you are good to go. What’s great about the snow ice texture is that it is very soft, though it does not fall in ribbons. Prices for this selection start at three and a half dollars for a regular bowl comprising one drizzle and the ice. Extra toppings are available at an additional cost of $0.50. Toppings available include red bean, rice cakes, jelly, mochi, fresh fruits, and other varieties. The rice cakes, though similar to Class 302’s fresh mochi are smaller and round and resemble the ones found in some holidays and Chinese weddings. The drizzle options are also quite exciting, but the most popular ones are chocolate syrup and the condensed milk. To make your life easier, Blockheads Shavery has a selection of “favorites” featuring some of the most popular toppings combinations so that you are not overwhelmed by deciding what combination to use.
On your first visit to Blockheads Shavery, you might want to get some green tree and black sesame. Extra toppings are available at an extra fee, but if you do not care for extra toppings, you can just add a drizzle of sauce (The first drizzle is complementary) from the options available such as condensed milk. As far as black sesames go, blockheads’ black sesames are very delicious. I might even go ahead to make the bold statement that Blockheads Shavery has the best flavored black sesames you’ve ever tasted. You will also enjoy the green tea snow ice, which is one of the best you can find in San Diego.
If you would like to keep it simple, we recommend green tea (Matcha) shave ice with almond jelly cubes toppings, and a drizzle of condensed milk. The condensed milk incorporates the right balance of sweetness to the fluffy and light ice while the almond jelly is reminiscent of childhood days. The result is a combination that’s hard to ignore.
Fancy a fruity combo? Order the strawberry snow ice cream with a drizzle of condensed milk and fresh mango toppings. This fruity combination is reminiscent of the tropics on a hot summer day. Another popular combination is the black sesame snow cream with a drizzle of condensed milk and red bean (azuki) toppings. This combination is uniquely Asian and is reminiscent of some of the dessert flavors one would be familiar with growing up in Asia. Black sesame is one of Blockhead Shavery’s most popular ingredients. Unsurprisingly, it is also one of the flavors with the most demand at Blockheads Shavery.
The seasonal Cantaloupe flavor is also worth a try. Combine this with sprinkles of mochi and a drizzle of condensed milk and your palate will tremendously thank you. This comes in a regular-sized bowl, but you can always order a second bowl if the first one leaves you thirsty for more. This combination is quite delicious and makes you want to eat like there’s no tomorrow. Macarons are also available alongside a wide selection of drinks, so you might want to try these on your next visit to the establishment.
Blockheads’ price-value proposition is very reasonable. Not only do you get an affordable product, but also, a quality product. This is one of the reasons why you will always find patrons flocking to the establishment for a taste of some of the establishment’s delicious delights. Blockheads Shavery is easily accessible and is close to Tsujita and Seoul Sausage. This makes it convenient for those adventurers who would like to kill all three birds with one stone.
