Teevy Challenge Continued - Miami Ice Cream and Sweets

Vital Information | Aug 18, 200311:33 PM

How great a place when they are sitting in front hacking away at sugar cane to flavor tomorrow's ice cream!

Miami Ice Cream and Sweets opened a few weeks just at the point of Division where it turns into Puerto Rican Broadway. They make an array of fresh ice creams and ices, mostly in tropical flavors such as mamey, mango, tamarindo--all ices, avocado, much, much better than it sounds and some conventional flavors like cherry. In fact, I believe the stock is mixed with a few ringers like the cherry and a rum raisin.

The chocolate chunk I had tonight, however, was clearly homemade. It had that gritty quality you do not find in a machine. Plus irregular chocolate chips to let you taste the hand (as they say). I also sampled the avocado, as I alluded to above, extremely creamy and rich, the avocado contributing fat more than flavor. Suberb ice creams.

Flavors change every three days, hopefully this will limit the problem of icy or stale ice cream. I look forward to trying tomorrow's Domminican choclate, which that sugar cane was intended.
