THAI ICE CREAM COMING TO STATE

Reader Steve H. says that the retail space at 716 State Street, previously MAC Cosmetics, will become a restaurant that serves Thai-Style Rolled Ice Cream, a new style of ice cream that started in Southeast Asia and is spreading in the United States. Some people call it “Thai stir-fried ice cream” because it looks like it is made on a hot grill, in the same way people cook meat and vegetables but the grill used for making the treat is actually extremely cold. The ice cream “chefs” add things like cookies, candy, and even pizza into the ice cream mixture. Then, the ice cream begins to freeze. Next, the chef spreads it in a thin layer over the cold surface. After a few seconds, the chef uses a tool to scrape the ice cream off the cold surface and turn it into a roll. The rolls are then put in a cup and covered with fruit or flavored syrup.

    Is this the same owner at the place opening in Hollister Village?

    I am pretty sure everyone just calls this rolled ice cream. The description made me laugh because it goes into such great detail for a pretty simple concept, at least for anyone who pays attention to food trends.
