Rolled ice cream shop opens in Philadelphia


Instant ice cream for instant satisfaction at Sweet Charlie’s rolled ice cream shop in Philadelphia. Like in New York, where long lines form outside of 10Below’s at a regular base for their instant ice cream.

Rolled ice cream from an Ice Teppanyaki

Sweet Charlie’s owner Kyle Billig is studying business at Arizona State University while simultaneously opening Philadelphia’s first-ever Thai rolled ice cream shop, Sweet Charlie’s. The frozen treat craze already took New York by storm, block-long lines forming at 10Below’s doors just for a taste of the instant ice cream. The instant ice cream is made at an Ice Teppanyaki (a plate of -30 degrees Celsius). Made to order, so no preservatives, stabilizers or emulsifiers. At Sweet Charlie’s they don’t even have a freezer in the shop! Just the cold plate, two scrapers, milk and toppings. And a lot of toppings, like oreo, coffee and donut, mint chip, green tea, s’more, key lime, banana & nutella etc..

Many more instant ice cream shops are found in the far east (we spotted several in Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur). The Ice Teppanyaki can be used together with the gelato machine, which is preparing ice cream in front of the customer as well. The Ice Teppanyaki can be used in different ways but we like the rolled way!
