Ice Cream Rolls Gone Wild, bro!!!!

Now, if you’re heading down to Chinatown, you might see a sign on Dundas Street for Thai ice cream rolls. I actually tried this delicious dessert last summer, but at Kooj Express, they funk it up a notch with more toppings than you can shake a skull ring at, son!

Now, this place is a bit of a hidden gem. You walk in, and they’ve got a buncha Chinese food sitting under heat lamps, like you’d find in a food court. But in the middle of the room, there’s this real-deal Rolltation 9000 cranking out frozen rolls of deliciousness, righteous bros!!!

This sweet scoop is heading straight down my piehole, son! You’ve got bananas, M&Ms, strawberries and a marshmellow on top of ice-cold chocolately goodness. And you can choose up to five toppings, so I couldda added one more, but unfortunately, they were all out of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Maybe next time, though?

FRONT STREET FOODS: You scream, I scream, we all scream for Thai-style ice cream rolls!

Dude, it was like 270 degrees in Toronto this afternoon. I sweated right through my Affliction tank-top, bro! And on a day like today, ice cream pretty much sells itself. But when they chop it, drop it and open up shop it right in front of you, well, that’s more than worth the price of admission—which is actually just five bucks!

This stand is sandwiched in between Bacon Nation and a legit sammy shop, so it’s basically Murderer’s Row, bro. They offer up five different kinds of fresh fruit, and you can add as many as you want…oh, and Oreos. They also have Oreos.

Me, I went with the killer combo of banana, strawberry and Oreos. I dunno guy, but I’m pretty sure if the Righteous Brothers were triplets, they’d be this dish. Check out this Unchained Melody, son:

OK, let’s break it down. We’ve got great big bursts of banana, some sweetness from the strawberries, and just a hint of chocolate. The Oreos don’t add a ton of flavour once they’re ground into dust, so the fruit was definitely the star of the show. And even though they just made this in front of me, like, five minutes ago, it was still as cold as my brother from another mother, Vanilla Ice, Ice Baby!
