Best Of Houston® 2020: Best Ice Cream

Best Ice Cream: Nu Cafe

One on top of the next, paper-thin ribbons of Taiwanese snowflake ice layered high as the razor-sharp blade whirs against a frozen cylinder of coconut ice cream. While the ice cream itself, devoid of preservatives, carries genuine flavor, its remarkable texture is where this ordinary treat transcends status quo. “Hills” and “Mountains” are topped with sprinkles of ingredients or pureed swirls and it’s kind of amazing, given the thinness, how long it holds its shape before melting. As far as flavors go: chocolate, vanilla, sure, but avocado, taro, sea salt caramel, too. With snowflake ice at Nu Cafe, the melt-in-your-mouth experience has been redefined.
