Sundaes and Cones

Sundaes_and_conesWarm weather = summer = ice cream.  A very simple calculation.   

My prime time of unhealthy eating was in college, particularly in the summer.  I would actually eat nothing all day but one huge ice cream cone generally 2 scoops, one was always mocha chip.  Such a treat.

Now, my ice cream treat is Tasti-Delite which tastes like chemicals.  I try to fool myself how good it is but it isn’t.  I also love the peanut butter chocolate frozen yogurt like ice cream at Scoop De Jour in East Hampton but it tastes too good to be minimal calories.

Last night we were walking home from the East Village and discovered a new ice cream shop that just opened a week ago.  Sundaes and Cones.  Great name.  There is a Japanese edge to this shop.  Perfect for this location which has more sushi restaurants than any other area in the city.  On 10th Street between Third and Fourth Avenue is this new shop. 

Large airy and clean.  Lots of varieties.  Ices, ice creams and sorbets, cakes too.  We tried wasabi ice cream.  So weird but good at the same time.  Sort of clears your senses.  Fred went for the green tea ice cream paired with a second scoop of red bean ice cream.  All really good.  Rich, creamy and good flavor.  I tried the mocha chip since that will give me an indication of how good it really is.  It was delicious.

Perfect topping after a sushi dinner.
