For those who are looking for a cool ice cream alternative this summer, New York City's Bonsai Kakigōri is the perfect destination. Instead of creamy soft serve, this shop is churning up massive shaved ice desserts.
Bonsai Kakigōri is a Japanese dessert shop in New York City that specializes in Kakigōri, which is a cold dessert that combines shaved ice with syrups and toppings. However, Bonsai Kakigōri is taking things to the next level with a version of Kakigōri that is a foot tall. The chain also offers innovative flavor options such as the Matcha Mountain, which combines matcha syrup with rice puffs and matcha whipped cream, or the Black Cherry and Cocoa Nib sundae, which mixes black cherry syrup with cocoa nibs, cherry jam, and cherry whipped cream.
