New York’s first Thai ice creamery just rolled its way to Beantown.

Juicy Spot Cafe recently expanded to Boston’s Chinatown, specifically 16 Tyler Street. According to proprietor Lori Eng, the Boston location “will definitely consist of our ice cream rolls in addition to beverages,” she told Eater, and an official opening date will be made public in the near future. This second serving of the dessertery will be nestled between Winsor Dim Sum Café and Jade Garden, respectively.

And what, pray tell, is a Thai ice cream roll? Also known as stir-fried ice cream, it was first popularized by vendors on the streets of Thailand. A sub-zero anti-griddle is where the rolling magic happens.

Juicy Spot Cafe debuted the first American-made Thai Ice Cream Rolls back in July 2015. They serve a variety of signature rolls, like Razzle Dazzle, or Create-Your-Own from a variety of bases, fruits, toppings, and drizzles. Beware of brain freeze.
