There’s a book of M. C. Escher prints on the repurposed-pallets-cum-table in front of me.
In the background, the proprietor offers to turn anything into a shake – “you could even mix nutter fudger and banana pudding.”
Phoenix plays softly in the background as my kids draw on the chalkboard paint wall in the kid area. Ancient garage sale oil-paining portraits of Army men, housewives, and old black men watch over us all.
Before I know it, Laurel’s breaking the last of my waffle bowl into pieces and offers me a a coconut curry soaked piece. It was delicious.
If you’re in the mood for something out of the ordinary, give this place a shot. We had the coconut curry, banana pudding, and chocolate shock. The chocolate habañero was awesome, as was porky’s delight. There was too much on offer to enjoy them all.
I did make a point to try the Youngs Double Chocolate Stout ice cream, being the beer lover I am and all. It was actually remarkably delicious – the malty beer mixing gently with the soft chocolate flavors was incredible. I kept thinking about how delicious it would be with Hunahpu.
Prices range from $2.50 to $7.00. Take away is available, but why would you? This place is cozy and yummy.
Revolution Ice Cream is located at 220 W. Brandon Blvd between Kings and Parsons on the North side of the street.
