AWARD: Best New
For all the big names in Wynwood (Norman Van Aken’s brilliant Three) there’s still room for wild but tiny ideas like a chef-driven shop focused on one thing: Extreme ice cream — like you’ve never tasted. How extreme is Dasher & Crank? Have a scoop of chicken & waffles (honest), mint chip and charcoal or raspberry-wasabi. These are pure 2018 Miami, wackily inventive, pastry-chef crafted and very local. The bird and waffles are from neighbor Kush; bacon in the Fat Elvis is by Miami Smokers. Likes of caramel-miso, purple yam-coconut and Earl Grey chocolate chip come from pure Wynwood whimsy. Sweetest new idea in town.
