You guys know that I’ve always been a fan of ice creams and part of my traveling is to hunt for them! I also took the opportunity to visit this legendary ice cream store during my most recent trip to Taipei – namely the “雪王冰淇淋 Snow King Ice Cream”.
If you think they are just a normal ice cream shop, then you’re totally wrong. They serve the craziest flavours ever!!! And they serve a total of 73 crazy flavours!!! Just check out the menu below;
To take up the challenge, Daryl ordered the pig knuckle (?!?!?!?!) flavoured one while I ordered the Taiwan beer flavoured ice cream. The people in the store did warn Daryl that the taste of pig knuckle ice cream can be very exotic and weird to most people but he insisted. If not here and now, then where and when can we try this again? So.. why not?
Hahahaha our faces can clearly tell you how the ice creams tasted like! Mine was fairly good as it tasted kinda sweet while his choice was just… weird! It was salty and the ice cream had pieces of pork skin, fat and floss meat in it. Oh gosh. It felt like eating frozen pork tho we never really ate a frozen pork before, who would? Hahaha. We finished them up anyhows.
I would love to try more flavours if time and tummy allowed. Brrr. I’m sure there’s a chance as this store will not close down anytime soon. They have been operating since 1947, right after World War II! You may search it up about this store in Google and you will see that they were located at the ground floor in most of the blogs but they have now shifted a floor above. It looks like a quaint hipster cafe now! :D
If you ever visit Taipei, do drop by the store at 100, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongzheng District, Section 1, Wuchang St, 65號2樓. You may alight at Ximending station at exit 6. Then, get your walking directions guided in Google Maps by putting the store’s name. That’s what we did and it took us less than 10 minutes to reach the destination. Enjoy!
