Bub and Pop’s now Serving Water Ice

1815 M Street, NW

From a press release:

Bub and Pop’s is becoming well known in DC for their sandwiches, soups, salads and Kettle Cooked Sea Salt & Black Pepper Potato Chips. On Friday, April 19, Bub and Pop’s added Water Ice to their list of house made offerings.

Water Ice, also known as Italian Ice, is a Philadelphia tradition sold from Spring well into the first frost of the Fall. Chef Jon’s recipe includes fresh fruit, water and natural sugar – that’s all that’s in it! It gets blended, frozen and then scraped to serving size. Four flavors are currently being featured: Passion Fruit, Black Cherry, Peach and Espresso (no fresh fruit in that one, just real coffee).

Soon to follow this Summer are ice cream sandwiches that consist of our house made Tahitian vanilla ice cream between two house made Oatmeal, Walnut, Chocolate Chip Cookies. And in keeping with Bub and Pop’s way of doing things, every thing will still be made in-house and all natural.

You can see Bub and Pop’s complete menu here. Any fans?

  • Their chicken parm might be the best sandwich I’ve had in the city. Huge but expensive.

  • The Italian hoagie is really, really good. The pork I thought was a little salty, so I’d pass on that again. The chips are tasty and you get a ton of them for $2. I wish they had pickles in smaller sized containers. For $4 you get a Tupperware full, but I don’t need a whole Tupperware. I’d prefer $4 for a variety of pickles, not just one kind.

  • Yep, big fan. I once attempted to branch out and get something other than the Italian, but it wasn’t as good as the Italian, so I probably won’t do that again.

  • It sounds good! But those hours are so limited that I’ll never be able to try it.

  • Both the beef brisket sandwich (with a fried egg) and the homemade chips Rock!

  • The vegetarian sandwich is not very good.
