When the pavement’s sizzling, and it’s too hot to eat, just give us ice. Shaved ice is the specialty at the NoLa Sno-Ball cart, tucked into a corner of the Liberty Heights Fresh parking lot. In true New Orleans style, a nifty ice-shaving machine inside the cart transforms a block of ice into something resembling the softest snow you’ve ever touched or tasted. It’s packed into a Styrofoam cup; you eat it with a plastic spoon and finish it off with a wide straw. NoLa’s flavoring syrups are all over the place—from dill pickle to bananas foster, watermelon and everything in between, including the addictive almond-flavored “wedding cake.” Try it with a drizzle of condensed milk—a traditional and indulgent flourish. Kids love this stuff, too.
