A favorite in the Paradise Hills community since it first launched as a pop-up in 2015 before opening its first storefront, Snoice has arrived in Kearny Mesa where it replaces former nitro ice cream chain Creamistry. The family-owned dessert shop is known for celebrating Filipino-American flavors and sweets, from ube ice cream sandwiches and taro milk tea to halo-halo, a classic layered dessert made with shaved ice, sweet evaporated milk, leche flan, pinipig, and ice cream. The store also allows customers to build their own halo-halo from a custom topping bar.
With a menu that extend to shaved snow, seasonal treats, and a large variety of specialty drinks, the Kearny Mesa location will be the exclusive place to redeem Snoice’s all-new Boba Pass, a VIP membership that allows subscribers unlimited orders of select boba drinks. Owner Jayrell Ringpis says they also plan to add hot food offerings next year, including lumpia.
A grand opening is set for January 8 but the shop is currently operating from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. for takeout.
