After a 20 hour work day, right after an 18 hour work day, the weekend arrived and the sun came out to play. I had the usual at Soba-Ya for lunch and decided that I really wanted some ice cream. Normally, LAW suggests that we get a tub of Haagen Dazs and make root beer floats at home but no, that day I wanted some real ice cream served to me by the scoop. I wanted hard ice cream as well, none of that mushy soft serve stuff that I usually love from Mickey D’s. I yelped the best ice cream places closest to Soba-Ya and found Sundaes & Cones. It is rated 4/5 and has 465 reviews – solid.
The “Sundaes & Cones” name conjured up an image of a small-town ice cream place with families lining up for some good ol’ cookies ‘n cream. It turned out to be an Asian ice cream place with a variety of interesting and unique flavors, such as black sesame, taro, ginger, Thai iced tea, green tea, mango, lychee, etc. You get the picture. Asian flavors aside, they also have the usuals like vanilla, chocolate, cookie dough, etc. But they also have flavors like avocado, corn, pumpkin, strawberry cheesecake… think Il Laboratorio (ice cream place in LES that reminds me of a hospital) but more homey.
