Sub Zero: Science Meets Taste Buds
My taste buds meet science recently at the ribbon cutting for Sub Zero in Encinitas. Sub Zero owner, multi-unit operator and master mixologist Suneethi Gudapati blasted colder than cold liquid nitrogen into our ice cream to freeze it instantly. The freshest, creamiest, ice cream appeared out of smoke and disappeared almost as quickly once I wrapped my taste buds around it.
Sub Zero has endless flavor possibilities as each cup of ice cream, yogurt or custard is made to order. You can even choose soy or rice milk as a base if you are looking for a lactose-free or vegan option. Once you have selected your base you can choose as many flavors as you want. Seriously. That means if you want a caramel, licorice, maple, piña colada and white chocolate ice cream, they can do that.
If you want burnt almond fudge, bubblegum, watermelon, pumpkin and root beer yogurt, they can do that too.
Suneethi told us they also do catering for special events and frequently go into schools to entertain and delight kids. I guess I’m just a big kid as I was mesmerized by the flash freezing process and fluffy white smoke – see for yourself by clicking on the Bird Dog to your left.
You can experience this too at their new Encinitas location in the Trader Joe/Ralphs Shopping Center at Encinitas Blvd & El Camino Real. You can also go to their kiosks at the North County Malls in Carlsbad & Escondido.
