North Pole Soft Ice Special Shop

Top choice Desserts

in Beitou

Open since 1961, and pretty much unchanged since then, this shaved-ice place is no-frills deliciousness. Get a cup of peanut, pearl and red bean shaved-ice delight – their bestseller at NT$50 – and watch the world go by from one of their street-facing tables.

To get here, turn left when you exit the MRT station, cross the road and walk 300m up Zhonghe St. They have an English sign.
