Rolled ice cream has gone mobile in Houston. A hot pink vintage trailer is the latest place to buy this curly treat that’s all over Instagram.
If you’ve seen the viral videos, you know that rolled ice cream started with street vendors in Thailand. It’s handcrafted by pouring liquid onto a cold metal plate, shaping it into tubes, putting it into a cup, and adding toppings like fruit and chocolate sauce.
Here’s more on the best places for rolled ice cream in Houston:
Mico’s Ice Cream
Husband and wife Chris and Kimico Frydenlund decided a food truck was the best choice for their unusual and truly international venture: Mico’s Ice Cream. The original Thai recipes tend to be light and delicate. But Mico’s rolled ice cream is denser like most American brands. Some of their first flavors are also distinctly American including Gimme S’more, and Taste the Rainbow with Fruity Pebbles cereal. They sell taco shaped waffle cones too. To make things even more interesting, they use Yummy, an alternative to whipped cream that comes from Chris’s native Denmark. Future plans include a Mico the Panda mascot for birthday parties. And they’re working on a subscription service for ice cream delivery! Check their Facebook page to see where the pink trailer will be next.
This cute bubble tea cafe was the first place to sell rolled ice cream in Houston. Visit Class 502 in Dan Huang Plaza for refreshing flavors like Mindblowing Matcha, and unlimited toppings that include organic fruits and cookies.
This Georgia-based ice cream parlor is another rolled ice cream pioneer. 8 Fahrenheit was the first to bring the treat to Atlanta. Their new Houston shop serves popular flavors like Life of Pie and Black Humor. The latter is a combination of cookies, brownies, and chocolate sauce.
