Yet another food tourist is coming to New York, with one thing in mind: “Ice cream!!!” North Carolinan michalco1 apparently makes his own, is thinking of starting a shop at some point, and wants to know the “gotta-try” ice cream shops and gelaterias in Manhattan. The major players are covered, from Grom’s gelatos to Shake Shack’s custards to the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. There’s even a bonus minithread discussing the merits of falooda, a traditional Pakistani drink comprising rose water, kulfi, noodles, milk, and seeds. All we know is that now that the weather’s turning we expect to see a whole lot of “!!!” posts about frozen foods again … and we’re looking forward to them.
