Located at Umhlanga’s Siam Restaurant near the Village is a little hidden Thai-style ice-cream parlour by the name of Yumibowl. Here you can see ice-cream scrolls hand-crafted before your eyes with OTT flavours and toppings.The hole-in-the-wall restaurant has become known for good Thai grub, but it’s this ice-cream stand that’s really catching the attention of Umhlanga locals and tourists.

The scrolls are made by pouring sweetened cream, mixed with a flavouring of your choice, onto a dry-ice tray (a cold version of a hot plate) and then chopping and spreading the rapidly cooling mixture across the icy surface to create a thin frozen layer. This is then scraped and curled into scrolls, which are propped up in a bowl along with wacky toppings for your eating pleasure.

The Thai-style treat comes in a range of flavours including the popular Death By Chocolate bowl with chocolate-brownie ice cream and an actual brownie for garnish. There’s also the minty Cookie Monster, which is made with peppermint-flavoured ice cream, crushed Oreos and wafer cigars as a garnish.
