Egg Custard Ice Cream in Chinatown!!

Just the other week I had been talking to about my lack of having good ice cream in the city. See I am an ice cream addict. At least once a week I have a huge craving for the stuff and I usually just run out to the store and pick up a pint of Ben & Jerry's. I have never been to any of the top places like Cones, Il Laboratorio del gelato , etc. So when I ran across the Chinatown Ice Cream factory I knew I had to stop in.

The amount of crazy flavors were overwhelming. I wanted to try everything!!! But since I didn't want to completely ruin my appetite for the day I limited myself to 2 scoops. I decided to go for the Black Sesame and the Egg Custard ice cream.

OMG- this was so good!!!!! Black sesame ice cream has always been one of my favorites since I had it at Sakagura and Cha'an and this was just as good, if not better than the stuff I had there.

The egg custard though really blew me away. Whereas the black sesame was kind of thick and dense, the custard was really light and smooth. It started melting almost instantly. It reminded me of when I was little and I would make stirred custard on the stove to put over fresh strawberries. It was awesome! Try it out!
