UNATION Team Pick: Vanessa


Are you looking for a super Instagrammable ice cream shop? Azucar is one of my favorite spots to visit during the hot summer days in Dallas. Not only do they have a super picture-worthy storefront, but they also serve super delicious ice cream flavors. Some of my favorites are Abuela Maria, Cookie Monster, and Salted Caramel.
