Every day in August, The Tribune staff is selecting a frozen confection for readers to try. We will taste our way through ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, shave ice and any other treats that will help us beat the heat. Today’s pick:
Orange coriander ice cream » A reader tipped us off to the homemade ice cream at this Thai restaurant, where bits of orange peel add a kick. Other interesting-sounding flavors include pomegranate rosehip, honey lavender, non-dairy coconut and hibiscus.
Chabaar » 87 W. 7200 South, Midvale; 801-566-5100.
Price » $3 for two scoops.
Shop talk » Chabaar serves a full menu of Thai staples such as pad Thai and a spectrum of curry dishes, as well as an assortment of American favorites for the more timid palate. You can get a scoop of ice cream to go at the register, but an assortment of cookies including chocolate chipotle and oatmeal orange chocolate chip might tempt you as well.
