Have you ever had stretchy ice cream? Can you even begin to imagine what stretchy ice cream is? Well I can tell you one thing, it’s heaven and the folks at Big Dash have perfected it!
Located in a small business center area in Richardson, TX this quaint shop is run by a husband and wife duo so you can feel good about buying here since you’re supporting a local small business. There’s always people in this shop which is a testament to how delicious their desserts are and their hospitality rivals even the best of southern hospitality. The first thing that happens when you walk in and approach the counter, you’re handed a sample of the Arabic ice cream topped with pistachios and if you’ve never had Arabic ice cream, you have not lived.
It has a deep creamy texture like frozen custard but it’s chewy and stretchy, like you’re eating a mouthful of Big League Bubblegum. When you eat the Arabic ice cream, you taste the cream and maybe a little cinnamon or cardamom? I’m not entirely sure but it’s absolutely delectable and the pistachios on top add a beautiful touch of texture and little salt to the sweetness.
The flavor options don’t stop there! You can ask for as many samples of flavors as you want and I highly suggest you try some of the more exotic flavors like Mint and Lemon which is more a sherbert but perfect on a hot day or the Lotus flavor which has a sweet and earthy flavor but is one of the stretchy flavors. All of the flavors are incredible and you won’t be disappointed with whatever one you get and don’t worry, there’s flavors for the little ones too! If you bring your kids here, they’ll love the Bubblegum flavor. I know this because I do! It’s so creamy with the flavor of bubblegum all throughout and the amazing chewy texture makes it even better.
The best thing to do once you decide what flavor you want, check and see if you can get it alongside some fresh and warm crepes. Oh, did I forget to mention they have crepes? Well they do and they’re incredible and I’m starting to think that there’s nothing Big Dash can’t do that isn’t amazing.
Speaking of amazing, if you’re adventerous or decide you love this place as much as I do, then you MUST try the Kinafa. It’s a melty, sweet and cheesy middle-eastern dessert and it’s to die for. You must be thinking, “A dessert made out of melted cheese?” YES! I promise you won’t regret trying it.
Have an anniversary or birthday coming up? Big Dash has you covered with handmade, beautiful and delicious baklava. Of course they have baklava and I’m so thankful for it! Baklava is for sure one of my weaknesses and Big Dash takes full advantage of that chink in my armor! Anytime I go there I can’t leave without buying a box but if I couldn’t make it there, they deliver …. and they cater.
So, what can’t Big Dash do? Apparently nothing! Their ice cream is incredible and versatile so everyone will enjoy it, their crepes are heavenly, the baklava is to die for, they cater AND they deliver!
