Back on Friday, we told you that an ice cream shop is opening at 27 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
The coming soon signage arrived yesterday for Lab 321, which will serve their variation of the traditional Thai street food — rolled ice cream...
Last July, 10Below opened a rolled ice cream shop in Chinatown at 10 Mott St. ... and soon enough there were three-hour lines for the desserts.
Here's the Post with more about rolled ice cream:
The frozen concoction is created by pouring liquid homemade ice cream onto a cold plate reaching temps well below zero. Employees mix in toppings, flatten it out like a crepe, and then scrape it into ice-cold rolls with a putty-knife-like tool. The result is five cute little rolls with toppings ranging from fresh strawberries to a blowtorched marshmallow and Teddy Grahams.
Will the lines form here too?
A lot of people (me included) figured they'd be a crowd on this block when the popular Japadog opened its first U.S. outlet in early 2012. That never happened.
Until Jan. 16, the storefront at No. 27 was home for 30-plus years to The Sock Man.
