It's been a while since we wanted to try the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop: we heard about it so much and saw it few times on some of the TV shows we follow. It all started with a truck in 2009 and two years later, they opened this location in the East Village.
And trust me: it was crowded! To a point that the person you see on the photo, who made us laugh a lot, was directing traffic into the store.
It is a very small place with a passion from unicorns apparently...
Yes, unicorns everywhere!
There, you will not find your regular ice cream: it is not Mr Softee! They use ingredients like sea salt, dulce de leche, vanilla wafers, key lime curd...
On my side, I decided to order the Monday Sundae:
It was made of twist ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt and whipped cream. The best part was the cone that was lined with Nutella! Yes, Nutella, one of my favorite spreads! And they put a nice quantity of it! It was a bit sweet, but I loved the sweet and salty taste.
Jodi went for the Salty Pimp:
It was made of vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt and dipped in milk chocolate, that created a delicious coating.
These ice cream were decadent and fantastic! I also liked the ice cream holder that allowed not to have ice cream dripping on our hands. I will definitely go back!!!
Enjoy (I did)!
