yelo is in the back alley near the Roppongi intersection. It is located in a gorgeous area with many restaurants. The red light that suddenly appears on the dim night road ... and the goodwill of "ice". This is the entrance to yelo.
Inside the store, there are counter seats for about 5 people and table seats for 10 people. Based on red, it has a stylish bar-like atmosphere.
When I searched the menu to order shaved ice, I found something like a black stick on the table. When you slide the stick that says MENU, it spreads in a fan shape and the products appear! It's colorful and fashionable.
There are 10 types of shaved ice, including "Tiramisu," "Caramel," "Strawberry milk," "Avocado mascarpone," and "Matcha." Rather than shaved ice, it is a lineup that makes you imagine a cake. In addition, you can add toppings such as almonds, oreos, and tapioca, and customize the sauce to suit your taste.
Looking at the drinks, not only the cafe menu such as coffee, but also beer, wine, and cocktails are available. A glass of wine with shaved ice ... Hmm, isn't it fashionable? In addition, the food menu includes snacks such as olives and cheese, as well as sweets.
The stomachs of the staff of the eating editorial department who complain of hunger ... I decided not to look at the food menu and chose shaved ice for the time being. I ordered 5 kinds of "Avocado mascarpone", "4 kinds of berries", "Organic carrot mascarpone", "Matcha" and "Chai". Don't ask how many people went!
Shortly after ordering, I heard a rattling noise. Yes, that sound of shaving ice. The shop's shaved ice is made from high-quality pure water, shaving softly, and finished in a comfortable mouthfeel. Invited by the sound, when I approached the sharpener, fluffy ice was piled up. Can homemade syrups be put together here ... Oh, expectations are rising.
◆ 1 item "Avocado Mascarpone"
First of all, "Avocado Mascarpone" that I was most interested in. Shaved ice with a light yellow-green and white sauce was brought in. .. The scent of cheese that comes to you when you bring your face closer. I've never seen such shaved ice!
When you try it, you will be impressed by the fluffy texture! It melts in your mouth and the scent of the sauce spreads slowly. The presence of avocado is not strong, and it has a faint scent. Combined with the acidity of mascarpone, the taste is closer to sweets.
As I continued to eat, a white sauce appeared! This is a homemade milk sauce that is handmade at the store every morning. It is in the base of each shaved ice. This milk sauce is excellent! It is not as sweet as commercially available condensed milk, but has a gentle sweetness that blends in and disappears, so even large shaved ice can be eaten to the end without getting tired.
◆ 2 items "4 kinds of berries"
Next is the classic berry flavor "4 kinds of berries". I changed to yogurt sauce instead of regular berry sauce. This is definitely delicious. The acidity of berries and yogurt goes well together. It goes without saying that it goes well with milk sauce.
◆ 3 items "organic carrot mascarpone"
"Organic carrot mascarpone" is a vegetable-based menu like avocado. It is covered with carrot sauce that leaves a lumpy feeling of carrots. The best match is the original sweetness of carrots and the acidity of mascarpone. I want people who don't like carrots to eat it ...!
◆ 4 items "Matcha"
"Matcha" is an excellent matcha sauce! It seems that it is devised so that you can enjoy the change in taste by intentionally leaving the white part instead of applying it to the whole. If you like strong matcha flavor, please try it. It is recommended to top it with almonds to enjoy the change in texture.
◆ 5 items "Chai"
And "Chai" was served with tapioca topping. The sauce made by boiling black tea and spices has a strong spice and a stimulating taste. A nice dish with chai jelly.
When I finished eating 5 kinds, I was satisfied with my mood, but I was not satisfied with my stomach. And here, what I saw was the letters "NIGHT KAKIGORI". It is said to be "shaved ice only at night using alcohol" . I have no choice but to ask for this ...!
◆ 6 items "???"
I ordered "ram raisins". It was carried in a container like a cocktail glass! The scent of rum is already tingling.
It has raisins soaked in rum and rum. That should be the scent! The rum that gently soaks into the entire ice has a good taste. I think I love women. This is the most recommended of the 6 types I ate that day.
It seems that the lineup of shaved ice containing alcohol changes depending on the day, so please ask the clerk at the store.
yelo is open from 11:00 to the next morning. It is truly Roppongi. On this day as well, there were many customers who visited after around 22:00. It seems to be good when you want to use the second restaurant after a drinking party or when you want a dessert that you can taste. You can also To go, so it's good to eat outside when the weather is nice.
