Jackson Hts- Street Food Questions

Pitchaya | Sep 29, 2001 11:27 AM

I was in Jackson Hts. last week, grabbing a quick, cheap Indian meal on 74th St and stopping by for interesting nibbles at Patel Bros. On the way back to the subway, we stopped by to get some fresh-crushed sugar cane juice from a street vendor, and noticed that the cart next to it was an ice cream cart. The treats she was selling was absolutely fascinating. One of them was somekind of a frozen slush (or pulped fruit) on top of this brownish pastry-like shell. The rest were interesting spanish ice cream desserts. Is anyone familiar with these treats? I can't remember the names at all, one of them being something like sopacilla or something like that. I was too full from my meal to sample them, but I'd like to know the names and descriptions of these items for the next time I'm in the neighborhood.
Also, I stopped by a joint to try their arepa. Does Arepa con chocolo not mean "with chocolate"? Ours was topped with cheese. Pretty greasy.
