Never, am I right? Frozen treats are great all year. Two new shops for creamy frozen desserts are now joining the Houston food scene.
La Argentina Gelato, originally a Katy creamery, just opened its second outpost for decadent Italian gelato with a South American spin at 6363 San Felipe Street, Suite 200. La Argentina has an astounding 60 flavors of gelato in its arsenal including every imaginable chocolate combination, several dulce de leches varieties (some spiked with chocolate), and gelatos infused with fruit, nuts, mascarpone cheese. Delectable sounding options include the white chocolate with forest fruit jams and a lemon, ricotta, and cardamom mixture. La Argentina also serves up gluten-free fruit sorbets in flavors like orange & champagne, strawberry basil, and mango, honey, & avocado.
In Montrose, Milk + Sugar Creamery officially debuts tomorrow at 1848 Westheimer Road after quietly kicking open the doors earlier this month. According to the shop’s Facebook page, it debuted several flavors during the soft opening like strawberry almond cheesecake made with cream cheese, almond extract, and crushed graham crackers, that’s swirled with strawberry preserves; banana bread with house-made walnut brittle folded into a banana-cinnamon base; and Thai tea which is made with an actual tea leaf-steeped base and pairs perfectly with the creamery’s brown butter, brown sugar cone.
La Argentina is now open, and look for Milk + Sugar to re-open tomorrow for its first official day in business.
