What originally started out as a mobile trailer has moved up into its own brick & mortar establishment. Las Delicias ICT recently at 359 W. 21st St. For a couple of years now, they’ve been operating out of a trailer near 21st & Waco. When a spot opened up in the strip center there, they were quick to jump at the opportunity to own their own little shop.

If you’ve never been Las Delicias ICT, they serve many refreshing Mexican treats like aguas frescas, rusas, ice cream and more. They also have a selection of elote creations to choose from such as the one seen below from their mobile trailer.
Once inside, they had around six tables but not all of them were open due to social distancing.
Towards the back, they had a selection of twelve different ice cream flavors.
I saw a flavor called gansito that I was unfamiliar with. After talking with a staff member, gansito is a Mexican snack cake that is filled with strawberry filling and cream that is dipped in chocolate. The snack cake is mixed in with sweet condensed milk, vanilla extract, and jelly. The end result was a delicious ice cream. It had a gummier texture which was also quite creamy that I loved. The strawberry flavor was probably the most noticeable.
After having the ice cream, I’m going to have to get my hands on some gansito snack cakes now.
My ice cream was complimented by a strawberry/limeade drink that was as equally delicias as the shop’s name suggest.
I saw many people ordering rusas. I’ve never heard of it before but it looked like I was the only person not getting one.
Rusas are a traditional Mexican fruit soda, with a sharp and mouthwatering twist. It is typically made using citrusy and nectarous fruits like oranges, grapefruits, and pineapples. Some people also add fresh coconut to the drink. The twist comes from ingredients like chamoy sauce and chili powder.
A nearby table let me snap a picture of theirs for reference:
Otherwise, I very much enjoyed my first visit to Las Delicias’ new location. There were so many things on the menu I haven’t had before and look forward to trying.
Here’s the menu:
