Note: Parking can be a pain here so I recommend parking in a nearby neighborhood street (for free!) instead of using meter parking.















YUM YUM YUM! I've been wanting to try this place for forever! I definitely was not disappointed.

I didn't intend to eat here but found it on my stroll down Little Osaka. Kev and I had a little adventure to try some Japanese food and when I saw the Blockheads sign, I was beyond excited! This place is located down Sawtelle street which is a street known for having plenty of delicious Asian Restaurants (mostly Japanese).

The line for this place was out the door! Luckily, we didn't have to wait that long because we got there before the rush (at around 8pm). They have limited flavors of snow here but the toppings seem endless! They also have a wider variety of sauces compared to other shaved snow places that only offer the typical condensed milk.

Kev and I ordered the Green Tea shaved snow with brownie bits and rice cake balls. As for the sauce, we got Strawberry Puree on the side. WHAT A PERFECT COMBO! *___* The snow was very flavorful and surprisingly went well with the Strawberry Puree. It wasn't too sweet that your teeth would fall off either! I am seriously craving this combo right now because it left a sweet memory on my taste buds; real talk. We also ordered the small size which was actually very big in my opinion and definitely sharable between 2 people. Overall, if I'm ever in the area, I will definitely come back!!

HERE'S A QUICK SUMMARY:
  1. Green Tea Shaved Snow was heavenly
    • the snow itself is shaved very thick...JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT!
    • the rice cake balls were soft and chewy!! 
    • the brownie bits were a great addition! Soft and chewy too!
  2. a small size is huge
  3. a large is even bigger!
  4. it gets crowded at night! So, snag a table as fast as you can if you plan eating there!
  5. Strawberry Puree is a great choice for a sauce. Must Try! 
  6. They have cute owls as their logo!
  7. Place itself is quite cramped and small
  8. Reg size (small): $4.75 and a Large: $6.25
  9. Limited snow flavor options
    • Original 
    • Green Tea
    • Strawberry
    • Black Sesame
  10. Unique options for sauces
    1. caramel
    2. chocolate sauce
    3. coconut puree
    4. strawberry puree (so good!)
    5. condensed milk (classic)
    6. mango puree
  11. Many topping choices!

IN COMPARISON WITH OTHER SNOW PLACES:
  • SNOW STATION / SNOWFLAKE FACTORY / SNOW MONSTER _VS_ BLOCKHEADS
    • the first 3 places mentioned shave their snow thin and the snow looks like spiderwebs
    • Blockheads shaves their snow very thick 
    • the first 3 places have a wider selection and bigger menu that includes other things besides snow whereas Blockheads only has shaved snow
  • CLASS 302 / THE BALCONY (IRVINE) _VS_ BLOCKHEADS
    • All of these places shave their snow thick
    • The first 2 places have non-dessert items on their menu like popcorn chicken, noodles, boba, etc.
    • The first 2 places are also too sweet in my opinion but they have more flavor options
      • their menu is also already set 
    • Blockheads was perfect: not too sweet and flavorful
      • you can make your own snow combo but if you can't decide, they have set suggestions
    • Class 302 and The Balcony mix the condensed milk in with the snow (why it's too sweet!)
    •  You can ask for the sauce on the side at Blockheads and just drizzle it on as you places


If you guys ever try Blockheads, hope you'll be just as satisfied (or more) as I was! ^___^
