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.
8. Steel City Pops
Do ice pops count as ice cream? Judging from the monster line that is always out the door at this Greenville Avenue shop, the answer is 100 percent. Dessert on a stick is so much more fun.
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
