While this friendly little store is building a reputation for its bubble teas, gifts, and food items imported from the Philippines and Japan, it also boasts the most exotic selection of ice creams we've found in Austin. They don't sell it in cones or bowls, but you can buy pints or quarts of mango, coconut, jackfruit with cashew nuts, Corn and Cheese, Purple Yam, or avocado. Or they'll add a scoop to your refreshing bubble tea or "halo-halo" drinks.
