Flavor Brigade: Philly Italian Water Ices and Frozen Custard in Oakland

hhc | Jul 27, 2010 05:50 PM

I just read about this place on SFWeekly Blog. They've been open since January, I don't remember reading any reports on CH.

"The shop offers Philadelphia-style Italian water ice, frozen custard, and ice cream. Water ice is different from snow cones or shaved ice ― it isn't simply syrup poured over ice, but a frozen confection made with fruit purees or concentrated syrups. The small size goes for $1.99, with a daily 99-cent featured flavor."

"In Philadelphia, you see water ice at every pizza place," he says. (Trend alert: In South Berkeley, the owner of Sweet Adeline Bakeshop and one of the partners in Oakland's Dona Tomas are teaming up for a pizza-and-frozen-custard place called Addie's Pizza Pie.) "

Flavor Brigade: 3540 Fruitvale (at MacArthur), Oakland.
