Taiwanese mango dessert applauded by US magazine


TAIPEI–A U.S. travel magazine has selected Taiwan’s “mango avalanche” — a dessert of shaved ice topped with diced fresh mango, as one of the world’s best desserts, CNN reported Tuesday.

Travel & Leisure praised the mango avalanche served by the Ice Monster store in particular for its extravagant servings that are “enough for four dainty eaters or two ravenous ones.”

“Ignore the candy-colored popsicles up front. What you want is the ‘mango avalanche,’” the magazine says of the dish famous among Taipei dwellers and tourists alike.
