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.
[jump] Fresh ice cream is poured over a cold metal plate and quickly freezes. The chilled ice cream is then scraped into rolls which are packed vertically in a cup and covered with toppings. All together, the process can take about two to three minutes. The ice cream has no preservatives or artificial flavors.
Toppings include strawberries, cookies, almonds, bananas, sprinkles, pretzels, Oreos, marshmallows, nutella, chocolate and caramel syrups, among others.
Freezy Street also offers snowballs, coffee and soft drinks.
Freezy Street is open Sunday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
