Last Call For Ice Cream

It’s that time of year! just a few more weeks and we’ll be seeing Halloween decorations all over the stores, fall is right around the corner. This is also the time when I do a last run for ice cream. There are seemingly endless options for this frozen treat here in New York, so I love to find some of the best to report back to you guys about. This year I found some great stuff downtown, and I sure hope you go and give them a try before it’s too cold…


This awesome shop has several locations in downtown Manhattan. A young team of entrepreneurs came together to create this delicious (hormone free, locally sourced and additive free) ice-cream. Wholesome and healthy, these treats are not just delicious, but also helpful, being that a portion of the sales are being donated to the Food Bank for NYC. So yes, it makes eating these yummy treats even more delicious. Pick your cone or cup, or even better: an ice-cream sandwich made of cookies, pick your flavor and your toppings, and enjoy summer. I’m loving this place.

Big Gay Ice Cream

This awesome place is located in the East and in the West Village. Starting out with an ice-cream truck, this business flourished quickly due to their creative and delicious icy creations. Fun flavors with fun looks and fun names like Monday Sundae and Rufus, it’s a summer destination not to be missed. On our visit we tried the Salty Pimp and the Mermaid, and we absolutely loved it.

Ice & Vice

Way down on the Lower Eastside, close to Chinatown, you find Ice & Vice, with a sister store in the Times Square area. The treats being offered are traditional ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt, all in flavors off the beaten path, which makes it even more fun, As usual you can choose between cones and cups, and also a sample plate of five different flavors. On this day we tried 9AM (Vietnamese coffee), Basic B (Mexican Vanilla and Sea Salt), Milk Money (Toasted Milk and Chocolate Ganache), Opium Den (Sesame, Poppy and Lemon Bread Crouton), Amaretto Sour (Orange Tang, Almond and Rye Cherry), as well as Frosé (Raspberry, Rose and Rhubarb). Totally amazing….

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
