Kaohsiung-午涼。Go for ice

Value for money: 9/10

Cleanliness: 9/10

Service: 10/10

Quality of food: 9/10

Overall: 9/10


New to Kaohsiung and having only been in operation for a couple of months now, “Hey, go for ice” is a small place specialising in (shock), shaved ice.



Whilst the space inside is small, it’s that nice kind of small where it still feels friendly.


In addition to the window seats, there are 6 more tables inside.





Cheese Cake



Solid cheese cake. Dense, delicate vanilla flavour.

Lemon Ice

Watching this being made, there was A LOT of sugar put onto the dish. I am fine with it being sweetened, but this was bordering on excessive amounts.


The ice, however, was incredibly refreshing and reminded me of Italian lemon granita. High scores all around.

Seasonal Ice

I loved watching the melon dish take form.


The ice cream on top is a plum ice cream from a popular ice cream shop just round the corner.

The melon is sweet and strong in flavour, the ice inside cleanses the pallete nicely and the chewy tapioca balls are an interesting texture addition. Drizzled with carnation (evaporated) milk is a naughty (but welcomed) addition.

Recently moved out to Taiwan and don't know how to order at restaurants? I got you sorted. Can read some characters but still don't quite know what you're ordering? I got you sorted. This site has been developed to help people who can't speak or read Mandarin. I use pinyin, characters and English to talk about food ordering, and how you can do it at specific restaurants. If you like it, then give me a shout! Ash.
