Sundaes and Cones - Manhattan

You Scream, I Scream....
It is friggin hot in NYC right now, so much so that when Puffin spotted this ice cream place I was more than happy to check it out. I ordered a scoop of Tiramisu ice cream which hit the spot. It was rich and even included pieces of cake within. A very nice find indeed. Puffin got a strawberry cheesecake, which I didn't bother to photo because I have this thing against strawberry ice cream.

The place is light and pleasant, with giant windows looking out onto 10th Street. There are a few seats at the window and more sprinkled out on the sidewalk. It is a tad pricey at $3 and change for a single scoop, but hey - that's Manhattan for you, right? It seems to have a slight Asian bent, given some of the flavors offered, such as lychee, green tea and black sesame.

  1. Very efficient indeed.. the ice cream is probably still digesting in my belly :)

    My strawberry cheesecake ice cream was good too.. but probably not as memorable as what you had.

  2. Who made the right choice this time? Who?

  3. mmmm, i can always go for an ice cream cone ! especially when it's sweltering in nyc ! i actually remember going to that place when it first opened. i made the wrong choice of ordering taro root ice cream. i bet your tiramisu was much better. i actually just reported on my tiramisu gelato in venice on MyKugelhopf... ! great (and hungry) minds think alike ;)

  4. Kerrin - enjoy your Venice trip, we were just there a few months back and had a grand time. It was blood orange season so we drank lots of blood OJ and ate like kings.

    I especially liked the black rope licorice there.

  5. Two days ago it hit 89 deg. in Syracuse (NY) and was perfect for ice cream--Gannon's homemade. My mouth waters. (Today, the furnace is on again.)

  6. Sal - the furnace? Man up, Sal, put on a Mr. Rogers sweater and skip some rope.
