This is a Japanese soft serve shop in Wicker Park with only two flavors to choose from: matcha and sesame. The soft serve here is perfectly creamy, and both varieties are well balanced. The best thing to do is order the Rakki Royale, a swirl of both that comes with red beans, white mochi, coffee jelly, chestnut, rice puffs, sesame brittle, and a piece of matcha cheesecake. It’s not too sweet, has a lot of different textures, and is something you need to have.
