Just like this newly opened gastropark in QC: The Yard at Xavierville. The yard is a 3-floor food park built from steel shipping containers. The first and second levels contain the 30 vendors offering almost every type of food and cuisine you can think of – from appetizers, to mains, to drinks and desserts. At the third level is just an al-fresco dining area where customers can stay when the seats at the first and second floors are full.
It was the first time that I tried frozen ice cream and I was pretty thrilled about it. My blogger friends ordered to variants from The Ice Box: Matchacolada and Koffee Krunch. The Ice Box's presentation of your ice cream is a sight to behold. They put your bowl of ice cream in a wooden tray wherein there's a dry ice that emits cold fog, like the photo above.
Matchacolada - I'm not really a fan of matcha, I don't hate it nor I don't love it that much, besides, I drink green tea. I like that the green tea flavor on this ice cream is very subtle.
Koffee Krunch - Although I'm not a connoisseur, I'm definitely a coffee lover. Just like the Matchacolada, the coffee flavor on this one is subtle too. Which, to be honest, kinda disappointed me, I was expecting an in-you-face coffee taste, just a personal preference I guess.
The ice creams that we tried from The Ice Box were just OK. The texture and consistency wasn't that creamy or smooth as we've expected. We've only tried two and they still have other dessert offerings so I really can't judge if it was something to rave about or not. But I'm giving them props presentation-wise.
