Warmer weather is on its way, people. While making the rounds of Houston’s fantastic ice cream shops, be sure to stop by Chinatown’s Red Circle Ice Cream.
If you follow any food bloggers in Houston, you’re sure to have come across the dazzling treats from Red Circle Ice Cream. As visually tantalizing as they are tasty – from Fruity Pebble encrusted churros to sweet, “pufflelicious” egg-battered waffles – sweets from Red Circle can be easily classified under the category of “food porn”.
Their ice cream flavors are wickedly enticing, with flavors ranging from Cherry Sorbet, Brown Bread, and Elmo Crunch to Mint Dragon, Hot Cheetos, and crawfish – yes, crawfish. The latter, the ice cream recently reprised in light of it being crawfish season.
The ice cream shop specializes in pairing these handcrafted ice creams with their other wonderful treats. As famous as their ice cream at Red Circle is their home-made churros. Here, visitors can choose from cinnamon sugar churros, frosty churros (paired with vanilla soft serve), or a variety of glazed churros with options that include Cookies ‘N Cream, Dulce de Leche, and Nutella drizzled
Hong Kong-style egg waffles are also available at Red Circle with flavors such as Milk ‘N Cereal, Party Animal, and – the best of all three worlds – Chino Churro with vanilla ice cream, caramel drizzle, churro waffle, and pocky sticks.
With their crazy ice creams, home-made churros, sandwich-sized macaroons, and traditional Hong Kong-style waffles, Red Circle is a must for foodies.
Red Circle Ice Cream has multiple locations in the Houston area, including outposts in Pearland, Sugar Land, and Chinatown at 6838 Ranchester Dr. Hours vary by location, see their website for specifics.
