婆婆冰/Granny's Ice Treats: Shaved Ice

評等:朝聖
Rating: Pilgrimage

臺諺云:「第一賣冰;第二做醫生。」高雄鹽埕埔的阿婆冰可以說是賣成冰中狀元了。臺灣還窮的時候,就常有人開轎車來品嚐。阿婆過世後,據說孫子跟叔叔還為了爭正統而打官司。我不清楚誰贏誰輸,也不知道哪家是哪家,只知道現在有兩家婆婆冰,一家阿婆冰

兩家我都嚐過,相去不遠,但個人偏好婆婆冰。除了個人口味偏好外,家母第一次帶我去的是婆婆冰老店。有了先入為主的偏見。

兩家都很上進,都勇於開發新口味。但我還是追尋回憶中的古早味。

用力推薦:四果冰、紅豆牛奶冰、楊桃冰、楊桃湯、烏梅汁。

A Taiwanese proverb goes like "The best occupation is to sell ice treats; the second to be a medical doctor." Granny's Ice Treats apparently has reached the status of the best of the best. Back in those bad old days when Taiwan was still poor, die hard customers already drove from distance to pay their respect to this humble vendor. Rumor has it that after granny passed away, the grand son and his uncle went to the court to fight for the name of Granny's Ice Treats. I do not know who won the case, neither who owns which name. I only know there are two Popobing and one Ahpobing.

I have sampled both. My preference goes to Popo Ice. In addition to personal taste, it was also the one my mother took me long time ago.

Both places are creative on developing new treats. However, I still prefer those traditional treats.

I strongly recommend Four Fruits Ice, Red Bean Milk Ice, Star Fruit Ice, Star Fruit Drink, and Black Plum Drink.
