Upon first glance, Tiki Monster H2O looks like your average snack shop—there's shelves packed with colorful candies and bags of chips, coolers filled with frosty soda bottles, and a counter lined with flavored syrups for snow-cones. Examine the inventory more closely, however, and you'll encounter retro, novelty, and unusual treats interspersed with familiar selections of Coca-Cola cans and packets of Cheetos. There are more than 100 different types of gourmet sodas, many in inventive flavors such as chocolate-covered maple-smoked bacon, green-apple jalapeno, and key lime pie. Shelves are also lined with vintage candies and international sweets, ranging from kitschy candy cigarettes to Asian red-bean ice-cream bars.
As guests marvel at the colorful labels of cartoon-character energy drinks and peruse racks of sunglasses, staffers keep busy behind the counter. They blend up simmering specialty Marley coffee beverages and shaved-ice drinks in flavors such as orange cream, chai tea, and salted-caramel cream. They frequently screen old westerns on the shop's TV, transporting viewers back to a time when cowboys still rode horses and regularly dined on tree bark.

Italian ice is refreshing and frozen custard is decadent, but it's the unique combination of the two that continues to bring customers through the doors at Zero Degrees Italian Ice. After staff members serve up scoops of Italian ice infused with fruity flavors such as passionfruit and mango, customers can opt to garnish their orders with swirls of frozen custard. The resulting treat is a blend of flavors; a zesty fruit tang softened by the creaminess of custard. Alongside these desserts, they also make a range of unique drinks. They blend smoothies with slices of avocado for thick, creamy smoothies full of healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats, and fill rustic mason jars with cold bubble and milk teas that make the ideal beverage to tell teapots you've had it with their offensive whistling.
The owners of Kang Lac Bakery have served their traditional, colorful Vietnamese cuisine for more than 30 years. Their menu balances traditional baked goods with savory staples, such as bao sandwiches, beef and chicken banh mi, and pan-fried bot chien vegetable cakes. Also popular are their signature mi and hu tiu: egg and rice-noodle soups bobbing with morsels of beef satay, wontons, and shrimp. The exotic meals don't stop with the entrees—the drink menu lets adventurous imbibers quench thirsts with salty lemonade and milk-egg sodas, as well as red-bean jelly boba and almond-pudding tea. For a more conventional way to put out spontaneous shoelace combustions, opt for a strawberry smoothie or iced coffee.
The Snow Bar sends a delicious chill right into customers' taste buds. The secret to this feat: light, freshly-shaved "snow," which the staff colors with tasty flavors such as vanilla, coconut, and pistachio. In total, more than 20 flavors await customers' decisions, while over 40 topping choices add to the long list of potential desserts.
Fresh fruit accounts for some of those topping choices, but what Snow Bar doesn't use for capping snow gets turned into frozen smoothies. These churn up in varieties such as "Choco," "Peachy Keen," and "Berry Sweety," the classic combination of bananas, strawberries, and good vibes.
