SnowFlake Shavery

I've been to  SnowFlake Shavery  a few times and I must say, this is one of my favorite dessert places in town!  No matter what kind of weather it is, I'm there!  The "snow" that they make is finer than shaved ice, it is fine to the point that it has a fluffy texture.  You may choose a combo or customize your dessert.  They make an assortment of flavors such as Vanilla, Green Tea , Black Sesame , Chocolate, Strawberry, Mango, and Coconut.  After you choose your flavor, you may choose toppings or any sweet sauces for an additional cost.

New Mexico Trip '13

Last month we took a short trip to Albuquerque .  The foods there took me by surprise especially when a lot of their foods had green chile in them!  I guess its a New Mexico thing: Grove Cafe & Market So I had to come to this restaurant because it was in Breaking Bad .  What I like about Grove Cafe is they aim to serve the highest quality of food.  I think the photos speaks for themselves!  My friend got the Poached Eggs with ham, prosciutto, asparagus, and parmesan: I got the  Grove Pancakes  with fruit and  crème fraîche .  These aren't your typical pancakes!  They were flat, bit greasier than the usual fluffy pancake, but yet  they tasted great  and wholesome with the fruit and crème: Mimosa Time: You Breaking Bad fans should recognize this area: The Grove Cafe was busy, but they were fast to me with the food coming out, I was impressed!  I wouldn't mind eating here if I visit Albuquerque again :) Marble Brewery My fri
