Ice and Vice, creative ice cream in The Lower East Side

Alright, this post is a bit overdue, but I admit that the experience at Ice and Vice was quite memorable, their ice cream being quite original, with flavors like hibiscus, rose and Swedish fish fluff for their seasonal red ice cream, or cucumber, lemon-verbena, ginger basil-seed for their green ice cream. I have seen so many people posting photos on Instagram that we decided to go there, close to Chinatown, and I admit that, although very creative, it does not measure up to Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream, that is a fantastic place. Here is what we tried:

Milk Money, made with toasted milk, sea salt and dark chocolate ganache:

In the cup, you can see two scoops (why ordering just one?); the second was the Basic B ice cream, made with Mexican vanilla and black lava sea salt.

Overall the ice cream was good, quite rich for sure, but I did not like it to the point that I would have to go back: the flavors were a bit out there and I think there are plenty of places in the city offering better choices, such as Morgenstern's that I mentioned before, Ample Hills Creamery or even ColdStone that I love. 

Enjoy (I did)!
