Kakigori in Dubai: A Japanese Shaved Ice Sweet Treat

What is a kakigori?

Kakigori is a traditional Japanese shaved ice dessert, flavored with countless fruit sauces like strawberry, melon, lemon, cherry, blue raspberry, Japanese citrus, sweet plum, and grape. With a less crunchy texture, kakigori is very soft, light and fluffy, and melts in the mouth like freshly fallen snow.

According to Hawaiian Airlines - kakigori grew in popularity from the seventh and ninth centuries A.D. To chill out, Japanese settlers in Hawaii used their tools to shave fragments off large blocks of ice, and then coated it with sugar or fruit extract.

Japanese shaved ice can be found wherever from yatai (street food sellers) at summer festivals to kakigori specialty shops. It’s not difficult to find—just look for a banners or sign with the Japanese character for ice (氷) in red and a picture of blue waves beneath it. Various restaurants, cafés, tea houses, and dessert shops also offer kakigori on their menu during the summer.
