Tootsie Ice Cream Opens in Santa Ana; Also Offers Persian Shaved Ice

Categories: Now Open

Cute name? Check. Awesome location? Familiar flavors of rocky road and vanilla? Check. Check. Offerings of waffle ice cream sandwiches, and faloodeh, Persian shaved ice? Yep.

Yes, Tootsie--an ice cream shop that just debuted on the corner of 3rd & Broadway in Historic Downtown Santa Ana--isn't just an ice cream shop; it's also a faloodeh
vendor, a bonafide bastani, which are what ice cream stores are called in Iran.

What is faloodeh? Well, it's a frigid Persian dessert with thin vermicelli-like corn-starch noodles mixed with rose water syrup, served with lime juice and ground pistachios...but don't take my word for it! Try it yourself!
