Dallas's Best Ice-Cream Shops, Ranked
Fruity Pebbles shake or old-school sundae?
Whether you prefer your ice cream in simple scoops or mixed with innovative flavors and toppings(why hello, green-tea soft-serve with mochi cake chunks), Dallas has a lot to offer when it comes to frozen treats. (What else are we supposed to do in this heat?) Here, the best ice-cream shops in the city, ranked.
7. Wild About Harry’s
This Dallas landmark serves up custard and toppings to the bustling bunch on Henderson Avenue. After enjoying a hot dog and french fries, indulge in Harry’s Favorite sundae, complete with two scoops of custard, hot fudge and Spanish peanuts. To-go pints are also an option.
This food truck from Southern California serves delicious ice-cream sandwiches in a style thatthe company has dubbed "farchitecture" (food + architecture). Each sandwich is created in honor of an architect or an architectural movement of some kind. Try a Mintimalism and chances are you will never be the same.
5. What’s Da Scoop?
You will probably catch this food truck during a stint at Klyde Warren Park, and when you do, grab one of their famous sundaes, like the Black & White--with vanilla ice cream, Zanzibar chocolate ice cream, white chocolate, dark chocolate, marshmallow-agave drizzle and Oreos, of course.
4. Kate Weiser Chocolate
The signature sundae special Peach French Toast (with peach sorbet, brioche ice cream, sour-cream ice cream, sweet-tea peaches, toasted brioche slices and candied almonds) is almost too pretty to eat. Keyword: almost.
2. Cow Tipping Creamery
This Austin-based ice-cream shop made its way to Dallas this year--praise the ice-cream lords. Highly recommended: the Matcha Man, with green-tea soft-serve, green-tea mochi cake chunks, brown sugar, hot fudge, cornflake crumbs and toasted sesame seeds.
1146 Peavy Rd.; cowtippingcreamery.com
This Greenville Avenue hot spot, reminiscent of an old-school soda fountain, serves up signature sundaes like the Sylvester Graham, featuring graham-cracker ice cream, smoked hot fudge, toasted and crispy marshmallows and whipped cream.
2010 Greenville Ave.; 469-294-4012 or remedydallas.com
