DipDipDip Ice Cream features composed ice cream creations made with local milk cream and buttermilk from Hill Country Dairies and built in house-made, hand-dipped mochiko waffle cones made from mochi flour. Guests can walk up to an interactive touchscreen kiosk on the DipDipDip Tatsu-Ya patio and choose from a selection of complete ice cream desserts and assorted extra toppings before picking up at the service window.
“I was craving ice cream one day and the inspiration came to me while I was working on DipDipDip Shabu-Shabu. I had this vision of fully composed funky ice cream cones and sprinkling in Japanese flavors and ingredients along with other unique additions. And with all of the dipping happening on the Shabu-Shabu side, I was inspired to have house-made dipped cones as the edible vessel,” says Aikawa.
Affectionately referred to as “Sanrio on Mushrooms,” original graphic art featuring unique animations and characters designed by Tatsu Aikawa and graphic designer Mike Davis of Burlesque Of North America adorn both the space and the self-serve kiosk.
