A Mexican treat shop in Lincoln,Nebraska, good for scoop serve ice cream, fresh fruit with chile powder, mexican shaved ice, and the infamous Mangonada- a mix of mango slush/softserve, mango pieces, chile powder, and the same chile/tamarindo syrup. It’s a combo of tangy, sour, sweet and even a little salty. The sourness is so delicious that you will want to finish an entire one, but a perfect treat for me to share on a warm day. AND they take credit card, which is nice to know for small mom and pop shops.
