THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ice Que Restaurant Review

: John Park delivered L.A.'s first chef-driven shaved snow concept to Alhambra. The lauded pastry chef, who also runs Quenelle in Burbank, replaced an existing shaved snow shop. He retained a mural of a sledding yeti, but upgraded everything else. Now you'll find a library along the wall, colorful overhead menus and a pair of cow-spotted shaved snow machines from Taiwan. Park makes ice cream and the bulk of syrups and toppings himself. Build your own bowl from a list of snows, which emerge from the machines as flavorful ribbons. Still, you should consider a combo from the menu. "Aloha Pineapple" is Hawaiian inspired and touts the store's only shaved ice, water-based vanilla, along with condensed milk, lilikoi syrup, coconut tapioca, pineapple and pineapple sorbet. "Black & White" builds on a base of black sesame snow, adding condensed milk, coconut tapioca, supple mochi balls and crunchy black sesame flakes. “K-Pop Bing-Sou” riffs on a popular dessert from Park's Korean heritage, combining vanilla snow with condensed milk, earthy azuki beans, sweet strawberries, mochi, caramelized rice and a scoop of misugaru ice cream.
