Here's your mid-week InstaNom to help get you over the hump:
Kuma Snow Cream in Las Vegas is the brainchild of modern Asian cuisine guru Jet Tila (The Charleston). At the shop, Tila, known for throwing down in the Iron Chef Kitchen Stadium, guiding Anthony Bourdain through Thai Town on No Reservations and serving as the Thai government's Culinary Ambassador to the US, serves up playful takes on "xue hua bing" or Taiwanese shaved snow. Kuma Snow Cream offers six regular snow cream bases (including mango, green tea and strawberry) plus a rotating menu of special flavors (including Thai tea and milk tea during my visit) to which you can add three toppings and one sauce for free. My Ninja-sized cup of taro snow cream topped with mango mochi, coconut and rainbow sprinkles and capped off with a generous serving of condensed milk was perfectly powdery and creamy, and the flavors of my taro and Justin's Thai tea snow creams were impressively spot on. I'm not mad at their adorable, tie-wearing spokesbear, either.
