A 20-year-old entrepreneur plans to bring Japanese shaved ice to Oak Cliff.
Jerick Togami, a student at Dallas Baptist University, has leased a restaurant space on West Seventh at Tyler. Oak Cliff-based attorney Chad West recently renovated the 1,400-square-foot space, turning an old house into a restaurant with a big patio on the front. It also has some parking in the rear of the building.
Togami says the place, Nice Ice Shop, will offer all organic syrups, condensed milk and ice cream. He’s already purchased machines that produce fluffy shaved ice.
He hopes to open it as soon as April.
