Treat of the Week: Fried Ice Cream Rolls

Toronto's latest food craze

Inspired by the colourful streets of Thailand, this unique dessert experience is a refreshing, far out take on a summer classic. For those who like their ice cream with a bit of personality, Arctic Bites is a treat-ery that should definitely be on your radar.

As this quirky new start-up is quick to point out, every dish is different—no two cups are the same. However, the exact amount of dedication and time goes into every order. And with a laundry list of possible flavours—including a secret type that only walk-in visitors are privy to, there really is no better way to chill out than by gorging on this fabulous, frozen taste of Asia.
