El Oasis

I noticed a line formed on the street and as I got
closer saw that a shake shop had opened a counter in
the front of El Oasis video store on Northern between
84th and 83rd Streets. We returned later to check it
out. They're serving Columbian snow cones. In a big
plastic cup, half filled with shaved ice, squirts of
two kinds of fruit syrup, and then spooned over, fresh
banana, mango, apple, coconut and a few hits of
condensed milk. (Marachino cherries optional). Served
with a spoon and a straw, lasts for the walk home.
Sweet and delicious.
