Hand-Shaved Ice Raspados

There’s a pretty good raspado cart outside of La Raza Market, reports rworange. Raspados are shaved from a big block of ice by hand, to order, and their syrups are pleasing. No English is spoken–she ordered what she assumed was mango, but which turned out to be vanilla.

These are properly done raspados–well-mixed, with no extra syrup or untoothsome patches of white ice.
