After leaving Thai Pad & Coco Sweets for lunch one day, I had a craving for something sweet. Lucky for me, this ice cream place a few stores down opened the day before. So I went.
I was greeted by several Kremo staff members behind the counter. You instantly notice how clean and new this place is. Oblivious to what kind of ice cream restaurant this is, I didn’t notice the big dry ice drums until the ice cream rolling began.
Let me back up a bit. The way this place works is you pick a flavor and then select up to three toppings for $6.50 (premium flavors and additional toppings are extra). After you’ve selected the flavor, it becomes ice cream rolls. To get to that point, the liquid ice cream is poured over the drums and then rolled, flattened, and chopped several times. Maybe not in that order either, but I’m not the expert.
After repeating for about 5 minutes, you get five ice cream rolls in a cup. I ordered green tea ice cream and selected only two toppings—mochi and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. My ice cream came to be almost $8, which I felt was a little pricy for the amount of ice cream you receive, but I attributed it to the experience.
I took a bite once I got outside and girl, this was good. I love green tea ice cream but the juxtaposition of the crunchy cereal and sweet mochi made for a nice combination. I waited until I got back to work to devour it. Because it was so hot outside, the aesthetics of the rolls melted away. I didn’t care though; it was still good.
If you’ve heard about the rolled ice cream trend through a Facebook video or by word of mouth, I’d definitely check this place out. Make it a treat on a hot day after the 15th or 31st if you get my drift. And enjoy!
