A shaved ice master opens his own store
On June 16th, a Japanese-style cafe specializing in shaved ice with a spacious and opulent interior opened its doors in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Its name, 茶寮億万 Saryō Okuman, literally means “billion tea house.” The name is befitting of the caliber of the producer, a wagashi Japanese sweets chef and master of かき氷 kakigōri Japanese shaved ice, who previously worked at a famous wagashi shop and has finally branched out and launched his own store.
If you want a premium shaved ice experience in Tokyo, this should be on your list of places to try.
The kakigōri shaved ice desserts at Saryō Okuman fuse Japanese and Western inspiration, each creation featuring the chef’s special ice craftsmanship in which ice melts in your mouth without giving you a headache.
In addition to shaved ice, you’ll also find a selection of parfaits, cakes, and seasonal items to delight your palate, as well as green tea, coffee and other beverages. Even if you’re not in the mood for icy desserts, Saryō Okuman also makes for an excellent cafe.
The star attractions at Saryō Okuman are unmistakably their kakigōri shaved ice desserts. Let’s take a closer look at the menu:
