Owner Kari Crowe Seher did her homework before opening, and keeps things relatively simple with a menu that usually runs about six items, thinks locally and always has at least one vegan offering.
Now comes word that Seher and her husband, Mark Seher, are opening a second spot in Dallas’ Truck Yard food park. Motor Sisters Ice Cream will specialize in soft-serve, according to Kari Crowe Seher’s Facebook page. The Truck Yard is at 5624 Sears St., just west of Lowest Greenville Avenue (which is a pretty hopping restaurant district these days). If you’ve never been to the truck yard, imagine eating food-truck offerings in someone’s very cool back yard, complete with tree seating.
According to a Dallas Morning News report, Motor Sisters Ice Cream will move into a walk-up window at the park that was previously home to Carnival Barker’s Ice Creams, which was also featured in our 2014 ice-cream story. Carnival Barker’s has relocated to Oak Cliff, leaving the walk-up window at Truck Yard available for the Sehers.
Motor Sisters’ flavors will be named after famous women in history, according to the News report, which adds that the shop will also offer milk shakes and sundaes.
Melt is still going strong in its charming yellow building at 954 W. Rosedale St., where “Merry Marshmallow” — a frozen hot chocolate flavor with a marshmallow — has made a season return (the shop also offered it last year). Check out its Facebook page for flavor updates.
