New York Snow - Los Angeles

This place used to be K-town BBQ last year. This New York Snow is located inside District BBQ & Lounge. New York Snow is like between ice cream and shaved ice. To me, it's the new type of shaved ice. It's like shaving hard blocked ice cream. But it's not really ice cream.

He was very friendly and helpful.

They shave that. This is strawberry.


outdoor patio area. tasting free samples

Half green tea, half peach cobbler shaved ice with almond cookies, mochi, taro drizzle $5.50

So you get to pick two toppings and one sauce. You can also add extra toppings for $0.50 each. Since I couldn't choose between green tea and peach cobbler ice, I asked for recommendation, and they said I can get half and half. Awesome. It was melting pretty quickly, but oh god, it was so yummy.

Republic Of Pie - North Hollywood

Recently I posted about The Pie Hole in DTLA. This is another pie place in NoHo. Their sweet pies are $4.95 a slice, yes, it's cheaper than The Pie Hole. And they have Happy Hour! Awesome. Now I have a reason to go back.

Between 8-9 am and 3-5 pm, Mon-Fri, and choose a half-priced item!

Items on the List:
Iced Latte
Brew Coffee
Cold Brew Iced Coffee
Hot Tea
Iced Tea

key lime pie

pecan pie

Banana cream pie $4.95
Daniella got this pie. After she got this pie, she forgot to get her tea so she left her pie on the table and went to get her tea. Meanwhile, Christina started tasting the pie.. she couldn't stop eating it because the pie was really good so I also tried a bite. The pie was good and I also couldn't stop. When Daniella was back, the pie was half left... Sorry girl.. Yes, people.. try banana cream pie. It's delicious.

Blueberry pie $4.95
Ok, my choice was apple pie, key lime pie, pecan pie, and blueberry pie. After thinking and asking to the cashier girl, I decided to try this blueberry pie because it's her favorite. The pie was good, but it wasn't the best blueberry pie like she or some yelper said. To me, this pie was just a OK. The pie wasn't too sweet so that's a good thing.

I ordered my pie with easy whipped cream, but they were out so they gave me vanilla ice cream instead.
