THE PLACE: If you’ve ever somehow had a craving for both ice cream and sashimi then this West Kendall spot, DIY Ice Cream Roll and Poke Bowl, is for you.
THE FOOD: Tang Chen’s restaurant offers homemade, made-to-order ice cream rolls, sushi and poke bowls. They even offer ice cream “tacos.” They’re open late and they deliver through services like Postmates and Grubhub.
TANG’S STORY: Tang moved to Miami in 2017 for the weather and decided to open up a Thai-style rolled ice cream shop. The shop’s name might be a little misleading since you won’t actually be doing anything, but you can watch in anticipation as Chef Tang rolls your ice cream by hand.
SWEETNESS AND SUSHI: It’s made to order, but if you’re not in the mood for something sweet, he’s got an extensive menu for you to choose from, with sushi, sashimi, nigiri and poke bowls. It’s basically a one-stop shop, for kids and bigger kids (aka adults).
CHECK IT OUT: DIY is located east of Lindgren Road at the corner of 132nd Avenue and 112th Street, near Arvida Park. You can also order online for carryout. They’re also open late – til 11 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on weekends.
