  1. I like Kozy Shack from the supermarket, but my favorite is Rice to Riches on Spring Street.

    Here is the link to a report I did for Rice to Riches on

    It's towards the end of the report.

      You really should try Rice's "kheer" or indian rice pudding. It's so yummy, topped with fresh coconut and almonds..

        I'll second Rice to Riches. Ok, so I'm hardly the rice pudding connoisseur, but if not for the quality, than it certainly deserves an honor for the selection. Lived around the corner for 2 years and couldn't walk by without popping for a taste of some new flavor.

      2. Ronnybrook makes a good one. I know they sell it at the Greenmarket; not sure about stores.

          At which greenmarket? I buy from Ronnybrook every week and I've not seen rice pudding. I'd be interested in trying it.

        2. The Best Rice Pudding in NYC is served at Angelo & Maxie's Steakhouse on Park Ave. South. Like no other rice pudding you have ever had. They call it "Mom's Rice Pudding". 10 on a scale of 1-10!

          1. I've tried many rice puddings around town and my favorite is from the nondescript large Korean deli on the south side of 41st street between Madison and Park. They get the sweetness level and rice graininess just right. Actually i haven't been there in a year since my job moved, so I hope they are still there and still serving the good stuff.

            Rice to Riches I think is a must-see just because where else can you find a place specializing in nothing more than many flavors of rice pudding, but for me that's the charm, not necessarily the finished product.
