Cool shave

Shaved peanut ice dessert, Nu Cafe, Houston, TX
Houston is having a record heat wave. Or a heat blanket. Coupled with a drought, it's just hot out there. Somehow, an ice cream just seems too thick for this weather. One option to be had are these shaved ice milks increasing in popularity in Chinatown. Frozen flavored milk is shaved into these sheets that melt on the tongue, providing both the the cool comfort of snow, but lacking the cloying coating from cream.
Shaved ice dessert, Bellagio, Mandaluyong, Philippines. One is peanut, the other is black sesame.

Well, not all shaved items need be frozen. Jamon Iberico de pata negra.
