JAM Rolled Ice Cream

56A, Horton Pl


So there's a new contender for ice cream in town. Not only is it a visually exciting experience it's also done really well



Rolled Ice Cream originated in Thailand and now they've made their way here to our little island nation. JAM does an okay job and take way too long to do it, but their ice cream is well made and, thanks to the process: very smooth.

The cream is flattened on a frozen plate and once it reaches the perfect consistency, it's rolled out and then topped with whipped cream or a topping of your choice. 

They have a set menu as well as a DIY section where you get to pick and choose your flavours and toppings.

Set Menu

The Pink Sensation (Rs. 500) is a combo of Strawberry Ice Cream, Oreos and Vanilla Milk. I don't know what that description means because the ice cream tasted strongly of faluda and it was topped with a hefty dollop of whipped cream and candy.

The Choco Chip (Rs. 500) comes with coffee-flavoured ice cream, chocolate chips and condensed milk (probably incorporated into the base). 

Our Experiments

The combination above (Rs. 500) is a Mocha base incorporated with strawberries, topped with marshmallows and whipped cream. The strawberries went well with the mocha flavoured ice cream, but they're quite stingy with their toppings so there was a scarce amount of marshmallows.

This (Rs. 500) is a combination of soy ice-cream incorporated with Oreos and topped with M&Ms and chocolate sauce. This was really good and the soy flavour goes very well with the Oreos.

The Scene

The ice cream melts super fast, so you'll have to eat it up quick. That being said, the portion sizes are fairly large and more than enough for two people to share. For now, they take way too much time to serve and, in all honestly, nobody should have to wait 45 minutes for ice cream. Just imagine trying to convince a child to wait that long for ice cream. The place just opened and we hope they'll get things up to speed soon.

All in all, it's an okay place to visit if you want to try something new. They have plenty of room for indoor and outdoor seating as well, so if you're going with a group you won't have to stand around awkwardly and wait until seats are free.

Try the Kithul Delight, you're in for a treat.

Simply it's just Ice cream at the end of the day. The point is I was expecting something quite different, sort of a unique selling point. Um nope. Voila expectations!

The Ice cream was good. We had redvelvet and a berry chunk for ourselves. But it didn't seem to have balance, the crunchy element. It was cream and more cream. It only got creamier. So that's for the Ice cream. Honestly, we had no clue what the flavours we were interested in, and the menu looked quite clueless to me. They didn't really give the clear idea. And not much of pictures (although later I followed their insta).

The place was quite dull, non cheery. As we are of a era where technology is a part of our lives, taking pictures didn't really seem to matter in this place. And the location wasn't convenient. We came all the way from bambalapitiya for Ice cream dessert and it was way too far.

Which leads us to the last part; the timings. After lunch we came their around 1 pm, later to know that it it opens at 2. 😑 seriously?? There's a time period too?? Ugh! We were mortified. And was stupid enough to wait for an hour to try out this so called " jam rolled icecream". At exactly 1.45 pm, we saw a worker cleaning inside as we ran to cross the road( form the fab which was opposite to it), the worker literally refused to take us in… We were beyond angry and humiliated about such action. It was just 15 mins and it was burning outside. The place looked clean enough and had plenty chairs. I wanted to go right away from this place, but I surrendered for my cravings.

Was it worth waiting for an hour to try it? Um, not really. Service didnt satisfy at all, icecream? yeah it was just alright.

This place is slow and hardly worth it. Ingredients added are minimal and not worth the price you pay. Disappointing and a ripoff
