Fans of the funky-cute Melt ice cream shop in Fort Worth will find them in soon Dallas, under a new name. Motor Sisters Ice Cream is the new Dallas shop opening in the walk-up window at Truck Yard on Lowest Greenville.
The menu will include "dipped and tricked up cones" and milkshakes and sundaes, say Motor Sisters owners Kari Crowe Seher and Mark Seher.
Ice creams will be named for notable women in history.
The Amelia Earhart, for instance, is a vanilla or chocolate soft-serve cone dipped in Nutella and rolled in pretzels and peanuts.
Previously, Carnival Barker's served ice cream from that walk-up window. That locally-owned company has since moved to its own standalone shop in Oak Cliff.
If you're not familiar with Truck Yard, it's a kitschy outdoor bar and food truck park located near Greenville Avenue. The section of Lowest Greenville where Truck Yard is located is one of the most popular restaurant and bar districts in Dallas.
The new ice cream shop is expected to open in December. It's a tiny space: about 100 square feet.
Patrons can order ice cream by walking up to the Motor Sisters window outside of Truck Yard.
5624 Sears St., Dallas. Hours will be Monday through Thursday, noon to 9 p.m.; Friday through Sunday, noon to 11 p.m.
