While staying at a friend's house in south Austin I went out on a quest for ice cream. Likkity's Custard came up on Google Maps and I swung by to give it a try.
Housed in a trailer off of Manchaca and fairly close to Slaughter, it is a sweet sight from the road. Festive lights are strung and there is a patio visible to the left of the trailer. Just beyond the patio they boast a double decker vintage bus that kids were having a blast in. Right now they offer three flavors - chocolate, vanilla, and twist. The standard toppings are available for sundaes or crush-ins. I tried the chocolate custard. The chocolate was belgian in flavor, the custard incredibly creamy and rich. I had forgotten how delicious fresh custard can be! The service was friendly and I really enjoyed this treat on a rare breezy Austin evening. They offer a very unique flavor and texture to rival the likes of Amy's - but consumers must be prepared for the joys of simple flavors and a solid recipe.
