Hong Kong-style Treats At Frostcity
Stella Tsang, owner of Frostcity, is quick to admit that she has a substantial sweet tooth, and to fulfill the need for sweet treats, she and her family opened a Chinese dessert shop on Beretania Street, (next to Jiffy Lube).
“When I immigrated to Hawaii, one of the things I truly missed from Hong Kong was a dessert place that I could sit down and enjoy the sweet treats that I grew up with,” Tsang says. “I was looking and waiting for 20 years for such a place in Honolulu.”
During that time, Tsang took it upon herself to learn to make desserts. Frostcity now offers a special one called snow ice. With more than 15 flavors to choose from, Tsang says this yummy treat won’t have you on a guilt trip, as it’s made with fresh fruits and is low in sugar.
“Snow ice is as tasty as ice cream and refreshing as shave ice,” she explains. “We use fresh fruits such as cantaloupe, watermelon, pear and mangoes.”
The lychee snow ice and mango pomelo drink are two of the most requested items on the menu, and with prices ranging from $3.75 to $8, they’re well worth every penny. Frostcity also has Hong Kong Milk Tea available to customers - a tasty alternative to coffee.
Tsang credits her family - husband William, daughter Elizabeth and sons Ernest and Edwin - for their relentless hard work, dedication and support.
“Most of the desserts are fresh and made to order, many of them based on family secrets,” Tsang says. “If you’ve already had a hearty meal and don’t want to go overboard with a heavy dessert, top off your day with a delightful and refreshing dessert at Frostcity.”
