Ice cream + cookies + Frank Lloyd Wright
Architects use some pretty strange materials these days, like recycled glass bottles, and cardboard boxes possibly once lived in by the people who supplied the bottles. This weekend, some former architects are launching a food truck that'll turn you into a house: Coolhaus, an ice cream sandwich operation rolling out in Dallas after successful launches in MIA, ATX, NYC, and LA, and named after Dutchman Rem Koolhaas, whose building designs are smokin'.
Run by the Nammi peeps, the Dallas truck's offerings will be "walled" by a dozen cookies ranging from potato chip & butterscotch, to a hotcake recipe that's guaranteed to sell like itself. Creations are all named after famous architects, like the Shigeru Ban-ana (bananas foster ice cream w/ sea-salted double chocolate cookies), the Orange Julius Shulman (blood orange sorbet w/ ginger molasses cookies), and, with brown butter bacon ice cream and chocolate chip cookies, the Louis Ba-Kahn, whose most elaborate structure was Ricardo Montalban's revenge.
If your sugar jones has reached Trainspotting levels, they've also got marshmallows in vanilla and candy cane flavors and ready-to-eat cookie dough -- an indulgence your body will still be I.M. Pei-ing for long after money changes hands.
