Bangkok bites: Artisan Ice Cream @ Icedea
A long overdue entry that deserves more attention than I’ve had time to give it. It’s been the usual, more work than I can possibly handle, not enough sleep and so many interesting people to meet and cool projects to do.
One of my best friends, Prima, Thai ice cream designer of Icedea has two shops in Bangkok selling her quirky artisan ice cream in all forms.
Granny’s lemonade, a cheeky name and presentation of a simple drink. Grenadine syrup and soda water, served with a slice of lime. The fake dentures are made of milk (teeth) and grenadine syrup frozen into a mould and it slowly dissolves as you add in the soda. Refreshing drink for a hot summer’s Bangkok day.
Tonkatsu ice cream! This is more a meal in itself than dessert. If you’re familiar with ice cream sandwiches, that I grew up with eating in Singapore and there are also readily available in Hong Kong, this rendition is the same concept, only that the bread is breaded and fried the same way tonkatsu is done. Inside, is a delicious ice cream stuffing and chocolate sauce is drizzled on top of it before you start eating with chopsticks. :)
Ice cream in beakers and test tubes, and it changes colour!
Brownie icecream made to look like a football field for once of her conceptual projects.
Icedea is an experience in itself. If you’re in Bangkok, definitely make time for a visit.
