Ample Hills Creamery Gowanus – Amazing, Decadent Ice Cream

[翻译] Ample Hills Creamery Gowanus: Exterior, front retail part of the shop, and the rooftop Ample Hills Creamery opened their new location at Gowanus about two weeks ago. It’s exciting for ice cream lovers since Ample Hills churns out some insane ice cream. I meant insane as a good thing for creating pretty imaginative flavors and techniques to create their ice cream and appeal to both kids and the adults who still have their inner kid. They also have a rooftop that you can sit outside and get a view of the Gowanus. We sampled a couple of flavors that..

Brunch at Russ & Daughter’s Cafe & Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream

[翻译] Menu; At the counter bar; The open kitchen; Our soda and shrub Most New Yorkers know Russ & Daughters, amongst a couple of more restaurants/food establishments, are a New York institution. The original store on East Houston Street, is essentially a take-out shop where their patrons of many stripes come mainly for their famous smoked fish (most order the mind blowing, bagel with cream cheese and lox but there’s numerous smoked fish sandwiches they offer). When the owners started talking a few years ago about the possibility of opening an actual sit-down restaurant, many rejoiced and waited until the..

Vioko (Barcelona, Spain) – Upscale Chocolates and Delicious Gelati

[翻译] During our vacation to Barcelona, we stopped by Vioko since we’ve read the shop has some seriously good gelati (plural for gelato or an Italian version of ice cream) that has more than the basic flavors. Since we were near the beaches of Barcelona and it was a very warm, mid-October afternoon (the high temperature then was near 80°F) this was a great idea. Vioko is owned and run by pastry chef Lucila Baiardi (photographed above), an Argentine expat who studied the fine art of pastry around various kitchens in Europe and eventually settled in Barcelona to open this..

Delicious Ice Cream at Bassetts (Philadelphia, PA)

[翻译] The long line at Bassetts A fifth-generation family business and a Philadelphia tradition since 1861, Bassetts Ice Cream Company is a full-service frozen dessert distributor, offering great products and superior service. Founded in 1861, Bassetts is America’s oldest ice cream company and has been serving the frozen treat in the market since 1893. Bassetts was started by Lewis Bassett, a schoolteacher in Salem, N.J., who began his summertime business with dairy cows and a mule that pulled the crank on a giant ice cream-making machine in his backyard. Lewis’ grandson and namesake perfected the company’s high-butterfat, all-natural confection and..

Funky, Tasty Ice Creams at Little Baby's Ice Cream (Philadelphia, PA)

[翻译] Entrance to Little Baby’s Ice Cream & ice cream flavor menu One of the sweltering days we were in Philly, we stopped by the quirky Little Baby’s Ice Cream in the West Philly neighborhood that is attached to this equally funky pizza shop called Pizza Brain. Reading through the ice cream flavor menu, it’s pretty mind bending as to how crazy their flavors are like Grape Grape-Nuts, Peanut Butter Tarragon, and their signature Earl Grey Sriracha. (more…)

Biagi is a sunny yellow gelato shop in Nolita, by its proprietor, Antonio Barros Biagi. Antonio first fell in love with gelato while growing up with his Italian family in the Brazilian countryside. Italian immigrants adapted their gelato recipes to Brazil’s tropical weather, using local fruits and naturally lower fat milk to create lighter frozen desserts that could stand up to the heat. He spent seven years studying gelato, and now he has opened his own bright..

Ample Hills Creamery, Brooklyn, NY

[翻译] Ample Hills Creamery: Exterior; At the counter; Stacks of ice cream cones and organic toppings Last weekend, my friend and I headed to Ample Hills Creamery in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn before we we had dinner at Kiwiana since we had time to kill before our meal after making our trek from Manhattan. Ample Hills Creamery looks and feels like an old fashioned ice cream parlor. You’d see toddlers and tweens happily jumping around while waiting with their parents on line for ice cream for ten minutes. I remember seeing a few kids even peddling furiously on the window front’s..

Awesome Ice Cream from Humphry Slocombe, San Francisco

[翻译] Exterior & interior shots of Humphry Slocombe and one of the proprietors Jake Godby I finally made it to the ice cream Holy Grail…Humphry Slocombe. Probably not everyone would understand the eccentricity behind the work of co-owners Jake Godby and Sean Vahey from the humoruous tongue-in-cheek names to the unusual flavor combinations for ice cream and sorbet. You can almost say they are the West Coast brothers of Big Gay Ice Cream except the latter does soft-serve ice cream. When you enter this ice cream parlor, it looks like a classic, retro ice cream shop – black-and-white tile floor,..
