A new street food shop in Chinatown opened earlier this month, serving decadent crepe concoctions and frozen treats. The self-proclaimed "Japanese snackery" Sakura Sunakku opened up at 42 Beach St. with a lengthy menu of ice cream-filled crepes, non-dessert crepes, and some novelty snacks.

"Our mission is to bring the most popular street food to our customers and delight their taste buds," the business’s website reads. Those foods include piles of shaved ice, parfaits, rock salt milk tea, and more.

The sweet crepes include a crispy banana crepe, a fruit crepe, and a matcha cocoa crepe, which is served with strawberries, cookies, red bean, chocolate drizzle, and more. The lunch and dinner crepes are filled with everything from shrimp and salmon to chicken teriyaki and assorted vegetables, and the shaved snows and parfaits have a create-your-own option in addition to the set menu selections.

Sakura Sunakku grandly opened on August 6 and is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
