Move over, Ted Drewes.
A new shop in the Delmar Loop aims to bring a type of ice cream previously unheard of in much of St. Louis — and likely the entire Midwest. Snow Factory St. Louis (6602 Delmar Boulevard), which hopes to open in the next month in the space that previously held Cheeseology, will specialize in Thai pan-fry ice cream rolls.The style of ice cream is "cooked" on a hibachi table that's kept at 10 degrees below zero. The ice cream is mixed with fruit or other ingredients, and then chopped and stirred until it's crystallized. A recent import to New York City's Chinatown via a shop called 10Below Ice Cream (which is not affiliated with the one being planned in St. Louis), it's been drawing lines around the block.
