With summer in full swing, man must be creative to ease himself from the scorching heat outdoors. Fortunately, there is ice cream that he can enjoy amidst the heat. Check out this ice cream that looks soft serve but not soft serve.
Outside of this particular shop is a picture of said ice cream, showing its cold, creamy point reaching up to the sky as if it were pointing up to heaven itself. It looked at once difficult to eat and delicious, both eccentric and beautiful, so we were excited to go in and try it. But in actual fact, we had no idea what we were signing up to eat.
The home of this breathtaking ice cream is a small shop called Shiroichi, which is just a 10-minute walk from Shibuya Station in Tokyo. Their menu full of heaven-reaching ice creams of all flavors shocked us out of our summer languish and made us ready for something cold and sweet.
As we gazed upon its artful exterior, we suddenly began to feel a strange sense of mystery. While looking at the pictures, our first thoughts had been, “It looks like it’ll topple over any minute!” and, “It looks difficult to eat!”. But holding it in our hands, we were surprised to find that it was oddly stable. It felt less like ice cream and more like a solid object.
Now pressed with a desire to know the secret of this mysteriously sword-like swirl of soft-serve ice cream, we determined that the only way to understand it was to eat it. And so, without a second thought, we opened our mouth to take a bite…and understood immediately how it could be so stiff.
