Michoacana Natural Ice Cream

9426 Parkfield, 512/740-6990
This new Mexican nevería, or ice cream parlor, does things the old-school way with all-natural products. If you want to make that paleta an esquimal ("eskimo," dipped in a luscious chocolate robe and sprinkled with nuts), that can be arranged in a heartbeat. Need a mango or tamarind raspa (snow cone)? No problem. They have four flavors of mangonadas (a frozen treat made with fresh fruit and juice, lime, salt, chile, and chamoy [an apricot spread with lime, chile, and pineapple vinegar]). There are also fruit cocktails with chile, banana splits, skewers of whole frozen strawberries coated in chocolate, and the list goes on.
