After lunch yesterday, at Aria Kabob Cuisine in the Galleria food court, I walked a few tenants down towards Sears, where a little kiosk sits housing a local Ice Cream Parlor called Sugar + Cream.
They opened up in June and serve 16 flavors each day (at least that’s how many are on display) in scoops, milkshakes and sandwiches (although the sandwiches are not explicitly on the menu, I’ve seen photos of ice cream macaroon sandwiches as well as donut [ponchiks? Google says they are Armenian donuts] sandwiches). I stepped up and was greeted by a friendly person behind the counter who offered up a samples of any flavors I was interested in. I asked for a sample of the Thai Tea ice cream and was given a real metal spoon with a sizable bite on it.
It was fantastic, so I got 2 scoops in a cup [$5.50]. You can of course mix and match scoops. I saw a kid after me get 3 different scoops which was visually quite interesting and colorful. The colors are very vibrant. $5.50 is a reasonable price, I think, considering how massive the scoops are. I probably could have done with one after my filling lunch. The two scoops towered over the rim of my cup.
I love the Thai Tea ice cream that Gunther’s makes, but Sugar + Cream’s is just as good, and soooooo much closer than driving down south of 50 in Sacramento to their shop (edit: according to Facebook commenter Melissa, it actually IS Gunthers ice cream!). I didn’t think to ask if they sell pints, but I’d probably keep my freezer stocked year round if they did. I loved every bite of this, sitting at one of the handful of little tables nearby. I suspect I’ll be finding reasons to head into the Galleria more often now so I can top it off with some tasty ice cream.
