Thai-style rolled ice cream is all the rage and it's coming to Westheimer.

Another Dallas-based restaurant has set its sights on Houston's most prestigious dining neighborhood. Chills360 will join Velvet Taco and the East Hampton Sandwich Company in a new shopping center at 903 Westheimer, director of business development Usman Babar tells CultureMap.

Established in 2016, Chills360 serves the Thai-style rolled ice cream that became a sensation in Houston when it arrived in Chinatown last year. The trend has expanded to the suburbs, but it hasn't made its way inside the loop - until now.

Chills360's recipes have been developed by pastry chef and co-owner Javeria Babar, who previously worked for Sheraton in New York. The ice cream shop has been a sensation in the Dallas area, where it's already grown to three locations. As at other, similar concepts like Houston's Class 502, Chills uses a super-cooled metal plate that freezes the liquid ice cream while customers watch. It's then scraped off the plate into rolls and adorned with toppings.
