Snow Monster to Open in Irvine's University Town Center

Do you like macaron sandwiches, shaved ice, or milk tea served in mason jars? If so, you'll be glad to hear that Snow Monster is expanding to the University Town Center right by UC Irvine. It will be replacing the shaved ice joint Snowflakez between Blaze Pizza and Berkeley Dog. Though there's no date listed for the official grand opening, one thing's for sure: it's "happening soon."

This will be Snow Monster's third OC expansion after Huntington Beach and Westminster. Now, Irvine residents can enjoy Snow Monster's Fruity Pebble macarons and horchata ice cream too.

The opening of Snow Monster is part of an influx of new restaurants and dessert joints coming into the University Town Center. Other places that have recently opened include Eureka!, Stax Cookie Bar, Chick-Fil-A, and Tender Greens. Chances are if you haven't hung around UTC for a while, you probably won't recognize it.
