Full Tilt usually has at least one vegan flavor on the menu. This time I was treated to 2! They had Mayan Chocolate and Vietnamese Cinnamon. The sugar cones are vegan, though the waffle cones are not.
Not only is the ice cream vegan, it is also completely scrumptious, and freaking gourmet! Justin, a vegetarian, creates all his own recipes and makes each batch by hand. Plus he is not afraid of flavors! The Vietnamese Cinnamon almost hurt my nose (in a good way!), it was so spicy.
The vegan ice creams are made from coconut milk. Justin says that unlike soy or other vegan options, coconut milk has enough natural fats negating the need for a bunch of stabilizers used in traditional vegan ice creams. And don’t worry if you’re not much of a fan of coconut, you might not even know by tasting it. Full Tilt is super cute inside. Complete with pinball machines and punk rock zines.
I got a double cone with both the vegan offerings that day. I might not have picked Mayan Chocolate and Vietnamese Cinnamon together if I’d had other options, but the combination was totally spot on, and totally White Center!
White Center is arguably the most culturally diverse neighborhood in the city. How do you get a taste of White Center? You mix Mayan Chocolate and Vietnamese Cinnamon together with coconut on a vegan sugar cone at Full Tilt. That’s how!!
