What is soft serve?
Well firstly, it is delicious! Secondly, soft serve is similar to ice cream but it is softer, lighter and creamier. It is made by churning air into the ice cream mixture as it freezes. The end result is a melt-in-your-mouth consistency that you simply cannot get enough of. Well at least I cant!
And where do I go for my soft serve fix?
None other than The Pantry. Located on Jan Smuts Avenue in Rosebank, The Pantry is the most gourmet garage shop that has opened up. It is a hybrid of a supermarket, deli, takeaway and a retail store. It is open 24 hours a day making it the most convenient convenient store – literally! Whatever you are looking for, you will find. From delicious foodie items such as fresh produce, gourmet pantry essentials, ready-to-go meals and bakery delights to beautiful flowers, good wine and everyday essentials, as well as a bespoke retail selection.
They are also offering ready made sushi, the tastiest prego rolls and pizza’s straight out of the oven!
But I’m here to tell you about the soft serve …
When that late night after dinner craving for something sweet hits, it seems that soft serve just does the trick! And I’m speaking from experience here. The soft serve at The Pantry is ultra creamy, airy and totally satisfying. They bring out different flavours all the time but I recommend chocolate, strawberry and turkish delight. I can also highly recommend the butter caramel flavour (when available) with fudge crumble sprinkled over. When you do try this flavour combo, think of me.
