Chinatown Ice Cream Factory

I was in a New York state of mind this morning and suddenly remembered a visit I'd once made with my friend Nina, after having a Pad Thai lunch, to a little place on Bayard Street called the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. They have some of the most exotic flavors I've ever seen -- well, you be the judge: Almond Cookie, Avocado, Coconut, Durian (huh?), Ginger, Green Tea, Longan (?), Lychee (Chinese Fruit), Passion Fruit, Red Bean (Dessert Bean), Taro (Potato-like), and Black Sesame. I had Mango!
