Below Zero is a Thai rolled ice cream shop in Savannah, GA. They first opened on Broughton Street, in a small corner area shared with Savannah Seafood Shack. Despite the cramped space, a crowd can often be found outside the Broughton Street location as patient customers and passersby watch the unique process of creating ice cream “rolls” take place. Each cup of ice cream is made fresh, from scratch, resulting in an equally tasty and entertaining experience. Patrons are drawn in by the show, but return again and again for the fresh ingredients, handmade quality, and affordable prices.
Thai Ice Cream is created during a unique and highly entertaining process beginning with pouring cream in a very thin layer over a below freezing metal plate. Ingredients are then added to the layer of cream, depending on the flavor you have chosen. The ingredients are then hand chopped into the layer of cream (similar to a meal being created on a hibachi grill) At the very right moment, the ice cream magician is able to scrape the ice cream off the metal sheet into a perfect “roll” of ice cream. Customers are then able to choose three toppings to add to their personal creation, including nuts, chocolate, whipped cream, fruit, and more.
The result is a surprisingly creamy and flavorful cup of ice cream that is just plain fun to eat! With flavors like S’mores Cookie Monster (that comes with a hand toasted marshmallow), and Savannah Bananas, Below Zero is a unique experience the whole family will love. Expect a small wait, but it is worth it! Time will fly as you watch cup after cup being expertly created with patience and finesse.
Below Zero has also opened a City Market location, that offers Bubble Tea and other items in addition to the Thai Rolled Ice Cream. On a scorching summer day in Savannah, it is hard to think of a better place to rest your feet and enjoy the show as something delicious is “rolled” to perfection.
