A new Filipino American ice cream concept has opened its doors in the Mills 50 District.
Sampaguita is currently operating under a soft opening at its new ice cream shop at 1233 East Colonial Drive.
The new restaurant features milk shakes, donuts, ice creams, and other desserts that incorporate south Asian ingredients and flavors, including ube (purple yam), coconut, jasmine tea, and kalamansi nectar, among others.
The business, which is a sister concept of the Greenery Creamery, is currently operating under a soft opening each day beginning at 5 p.m. A full schedule for the restaurant’s hours is posted weekly through social media.
Sampaguita joins multiple other restaurants that have opened their doors in and around the Mills 50 District in recent months, including Kaya, a Filipino casual fine dining restaurant on Thornton Avenue.
That also includes Plantees, an all-vegan burger and shake shop that opened this past spring, as well as Framework Coffee, which celebrated its grand opening in October. Just down the road, Paris Baguette also celebrated its grand opening this past fall.
