Ba Bao Bing

Summertime means Ba Bao Bing. Shops serving this icy treat are identifiable in Kaohsiung by the line that stretches out into the street. You choose from a variety of toppings--fruits, beans, jelly-like things, nuts--nothing that would every go with ice cream in the U.S. Sometimes you can just ask for a standard 8 topping mixture (Ba) to be put on top of a big pile of shaved ice and drizzled with juice.
