Thai Fresh owner Jam Sanitchat is spinning off her popular vegan ice creams at Thai Fresh into their own business. Gati will open in the old Porfirio’s space at 1512 Holly Street just east of I-35 in early 2019.

The shop will sell ice cream made with coconut milk, along with pastries and other food items. In order to build momentum around the coming opening, Gati will roll out a new ice cream truck on the property this Saturday with a party from 3 to 6 p.m. The truck will serve six ice cream flavors such as Cookie Monster and Sweet Potato Marshmallow, along with the brand’s popular gluten-free and vegan brownies and cookies. Fifty percent of sales and 100 percent of tips from the day will be donated to flood rescue efforts.

The ice cream truck will be located outside the shop beginning next Thursday, Nov. 1, serving daily from noon to 6 p.m., until the shop opens next year.
