Hansen's Sno-Bliz, New Orleans

This institution specializes in the sno-ball, the Crescent City shaved ice treat that features finely shaved ice that dissolves instantly on the tongue. Hansen’s, a John Besh favorite, uses a motorized ice shaver developed by founder Ernest Hansen in the 1930s. His wife created many of the syrup recipes and their granddaughter, Ashley Hansen, still runs the shop. Among the selections, nectar cream (almond and vanilla) is particularly popular, as is adding condensed milk to fruit flavors like strawberry, wild cherry and peach. Open March through mid-October. snobliz.com
