I have been going to Little Bean in Rowland Heights for a long time now. They have never disappointed me and it was great on a hot day. What is up with the weather these days? Are we in a heat wave? BOO! While I was waiting for my hair cut appointment I decided to stop here for my favorite Mango Shaved Ice. It's 10k times BETTER than the one served at Tea Station. After having the bland shaved ice there I needed to come back to this place to remind me how good it can be. As usual the service here is pretty good. They are very friendly and the place has not changed at all. It's part drink, part dessert, and part snacks. There are tables there to dine, games, and TVs.
The Mango Shaved Ice here is always plentiful. Albeit that the mango is not freshed. Instead they are marinated in a sugary syrup that makes it more flavorful and less sour. It's fine by me, but I know some people are sticklers about fresh mangoes. For the price, deal with it! =9 I think the shaved ice is still $4, which is not bad because it's huge. Every time I go I ask for extra Condensed Milk and Syrup. They drenched it on this time and every inch was covered by delicious sauce. Every bit was heavenly. I wish I lived nearby because I'd go there every day in the summer to cool off! ^_~
I usually pick up a drink as well. They kind of messed up my order this time but I was okay with it. I wanted Passion Fruit Milk Green Tea, but they just gave it to me without milk. They are usually really nice so I didn't want to say anything and just drank it. Tasted fine. This place is the only place I will consider getting the tapioca pearls. That does say something about their food quality since I abhor most tapioca pearls since they taste like rubber most of the time. The ones here are usually pretty good. Haven't had them in a while, but I believe in them.
