Fall may be here, but the beauty of a place like Texas is that you can eat ice cream pretty much any time of the year without feeling like you’re going to get frostbite. Which is fortunate, because you’re going to want plenty of Deep Ellum’s newest sweet and icy treat.
Chills 360 debuted in the neighborhood just a few days ago, and they’ve brought one of the internet’s most delicious viral dishes — Thai rolled ice cream — to Dallas for the first time.
This visually stimulating take on ice cream eschews the traditional cone in favor of a cup, which is better suited to holding the delicate rolls of ice cream that are frozen to order. The key to making the ice cream rolls is a ridiculously cold metal plate, where a custard base is transformed into ice cream before your very eyes.
It’s a pretty magical process. Eater photographer Kathy Tran was on hand to catch a sneak peek at how these delicious rolls of ice cream are made.
