Part two of Parker Place Food Court.
Now this was the same meal as when I had Pak Kee’s Pepper Salt Fried Chicken Nuggets with rice. For something that’s bound to induce a thirst, I gotta get a drink don’t I?
Aside from the popular Pearl Castle to-go, my favorite drink place is from Cherry Fruit Juice and Icy Bar. What does this place has to make me almost always bypass Pearl Castle?
These glutinous rice balls. They have the taro ones and the regular ones. These are the taro ones.
Basically, it’s like a drink because the bottom is filled with shaved ice (hence “Icy”) which melts. You get a choice of 3 items. Now you don’t have to get the rice balls but I get them all the time. They’re the highlight of this treat for me.
In this particular combination, from the bottom is pandan jelly, almond tofu jello, and of course the taro rice balls.
First they’ll fill it with shaved ice, then add milk and coconut milk to it. Perhaps some sugar syrup too. Then, on top of the toppings, some evaporated milk and condensed milk. YUM.
Also, they make the rice balls themselves! They’re always chewy and sweetened. I love it. This is $3.50. They also do the stamp card thing.
Another popular treat they have is the “8-treasure shaved ice”. I think the name speaks for itself. That comes in a bowl.
