Great ice cream discovery!

I happened to be near 9th St. for lunch yesterday and decided to treat myself to tacos at Los Taquitos de Puebla (yum!). On my way out, I noticed the colorful "El Pueblo" sign across the street and went to check it out. Turns out it is a little ice cream shop--ice creams, paletas (popsicles), shakes and the like. All apparently handmade and so many delicious flavors! Some of the ice cream flavors included cajeta, corn, guava and cream, strawberry and cheese, coconut and all kinds of other yummy looking stuff. A small, for $2.50 included two scoops. I tried the corn and strawberries and cheese. Delicious! Great texture, not overly sweet. Check it out, ice cream lovers!

    thanks for the report! i need to try this place before it gets too cold for ice cream...or before they stop offering it

    1. Sounds a lot like the excellent La Michohuana (no doubt misspelled) on State Street in Kennett Square. Thanks for the tip!

        El Pueblo indeed imports La Michohuana's ice cream.

          Really?! I never knew that! Awesome!

          It's La Michoacana.
