Super Serve

Super Serve is a soft serve shop in Kensington Market offering fun toppings and classic ice cream flavours.

It's a new venture from the team behind El Rey and is located right next door to the restaurant — they even share the kitchen in the back.

"Our flavour offerings cross over with El Rey," he said. "We also felt like it's what the neighbourhood needed."

The menu is quite simple, consisting of five types of combinations with one of them being a monthly vegan special.

You'll find classic flavours like chocolate and vanilla available as a single or twist. During our visit, the vegan flavours were pineapple and horchata.

Walker tells me they're always trying to strike an interesting balance of sweet and salty, "almost like when you dip your fry into ice cream."super serve torontoSuper Serve #3 ($7.50) is kind of like a strawberry shortcake. Mascerated berries and strawberry coulis are topped with white crumbs that are made based on a Momofuku recipe.

White chocolate and condensed milk is baked into a hard crumble that melts in your mouth. It's a fun texture that plays off the cool ice cream well.super serve toronto

Super Serve #4 ($7.50) is for chocolate lovers. Fudge, peanuts, and chocolate crumbs that conjure memories of Oreos are layered over a chocolate swirl.

I personally think the cornflake-pretzel and milk crumb are must-tries.super serve torontoThe monthly vegan option ($7.50) was a pineapple and horchata twist which we opted to try in a waffle cone.
