The Dolly Llama makes a great debut in Dallas

Once again, Dallas has a new sweet shop. This animal has an animal soul: a real llama named Dolly who lives in the south of France. But you’ll also find the essence of Cookie Monster here, too.

Dolly Llama, located on Howell Street in Uptown, may look like a petting zoo, but here you’ll find nothing but a picture of a llama and the smell of fresh pancakes. The big menu on the entrance wall can be a little intimidating for the uninitiated, but if you’re a big fan of blue tooth or super sweet treats, you’ll need to invest a few minutes figuring it out.

Dolly Llama’s menu is split into two, starting with the quick pancakes ($7), which is probably a perfect option if you’re on the go; A palm-sized Liege cake is finished with a layer of sliced ​​bananas to strawberries to pretzels.

Of course, the menu goes beyond basic pancakes. Ice cream is also a popular treat here, from your standard vanilla to more exotic ones like ube or banana pudding. The pastry shop is famous for its Cookie Monster ice cream, which is the same color as a sesame street doll and contains big chunks of Oreo and cookie dough.

For a whale-sized dose of sugar, try one of Dolly Llama’s signature bubble waffles, a lighter cake based on a popular Hong Kong food. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream and other toppings that range from creamy to crunchy to soft.

Dolly Llama also sells “OG Liege Waffles,” which are more brittle and have a stronger bite than their bubble counterparts. Both types of pancakes offer a variety of toppings and the option to create your own. As the site says, Dolly Llama offers an “interactive environment” for all ages.

If you’re having trouble deciding, try the best-selling Dolly Dream Waffle ($11), which comes with a perfectly round scoop of cookie monster ice cream topped with strawberry slices, cookie cutters, and a Nutella drizzle. The signature blue ice cream will stain anything and everything, from lips to teeth to clothes.

If you just want an old-fashioned milkshake or a scoop of ice cream, Dolly Llama has you covered. For $11 per shake and $5 per scoop, the store offers good-sized portions, which can be further customized with toppings and spray.

While the prices are higher than those kinds of candy shops, take two people with you; Parts made to share.

Dolly Lama, 2817 Howell Street, Suite 210 (Uptown), 12-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; 12 PM – 12 AM on Friday and Saturday.
