Following the blackball craze, my tastebuds were piqued when we spotted a shop that had a similar concept in Millenia Walk.
An Affair with Ice sells Shaved Ice topped with Taiwanese Fen Yuan (Potato/Yam Starch Balls). I really like the name of the store as it captures the essence of the product.

So, we tried the Taro Shaved ice topped with Red Bean and Fen Yuan. We also topped up a dollar for some lemongrass drink.
Compared with blackball, I would say that the Fen Yuan are not as nice. They are kind of hard and not chewy enough. Taste wise, it was quite mediocre. I felt that the shaved Ice and toppings could complement each other better. Creativity wise, i guess the taro shaved ice was kind of refreshing! And, we concluded that the more you eat the dessert, the better it tastes! Probably due to the flavor of the shaved ice being more cohesive with the toppings. The Lemongrass drink lacks a bit of sweetness.
