new york city : post 5

Thoughts about my NYC experience

Some of the other establishments that I visited:

1. Chinatown Ice Cream Factory: This small ice cream parlour’s regular flavours include almond cookie, black sesame, ginger, red bean, taro and ube. Their exotic flavours include chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, butter pecan and rum raisin.
2. Rice to Riches: a store selling 30 different flavours of rice pudding! Their flavours include raspberry statement, rest in peach, hazelnut chocolate, coconut coma, pistachio saffron and many more.
3. Fluff: a fun, whimsical café that makes homemade versions of Hostess Twinkies, Snowballs and Susie Q’s, along with other great American classics.

Some places I look forward to visiting in the future:

1. Café Boulud: for desserts made by French pastry chef Eric Bertoïa—I can’t wait.
2. Michel Cluizel Chocolate Bar: this chocolatier offers a 35-minute guided chocolate tasting for US$35.
3. WD50: a hip and hot restaurant that serves innovative and playful food and dessert.

My hope is that these NYC posts will help you on your next trip to this great city, or even inspire you to visit.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for reading the posts. I'm glad you enjoyed them. I highly recommend eating at these places for yourself.

Hi Chole,

Rice to Riches was a funky little shop. The chocolate rice pudding that I sampled tasted good. They have trendy bowls, spoons and packaging.

Hi Sam, I followed a link from the Domestic Goddess here. I wanted to drop my two cents about WD-50: I read a lot of great reviews about its innovative and funky cuisine, but was rather disappointed by my actual experience there! Some friends who had the same experience have recommended the restaurant next door which opened a couple of months ago and which I have not tried yet, Felai.
