Mid-Week Insta-Nom: Blockheads Shavery

Here's your mid-week Insta-Nom to help get you over the hump:

Blockheads Shavery

Green Tea Shaved Snow

The Little Osaka area of West LA is perhaps best known for its abundance of ramen, but another Sawtelle eatery often boasts a line that rivals the one at Tsujita-- Blockheads Shavery. Blockheads serves Taiwanese shaved snow, which is made by freezing blocks of flavored, milky ice and then shaving them into airy ribbons, yielding a consistency much different than that of Hawaiian shave ice. My go-to order is green tea shaved snow topped with condensed milk and housemade rice cakes (pictured in the center above). It's so good that, not too long ago, I visited Blockheads three weekends in a row!
