Freezy Street opens on St. Claude Avenue_lowres


Move over, soft serve, there's a new kid in town. Freezy Street (2633 St. Claude Ave.; a new shop specializing in Thai-style rolled ice cream, is now open on St. Claude Avenue.

  Owners Adam Enterkin and Frances LaMagna were inspired by their travels in Thailand, where street vendors sell the frozen treat.

  Fresh ice cream is poured over a cold metal plate and quickly freezes. The chilled ice cream then is scraped into rolls which are packed vertically in a cup and covered with toppings such as strawberries, cookies, almonds, bananas, sprinkles, pretzels, Oreos, marshmallows, Nutella, chocolate and caramel syrups, and more. The process can take about two to three minutes.

  The ice cream has no preservatives or artificial flavors.

  Freezy Street also offers snowballs, coffee and soft drinks.

  Freezy Street is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
