Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, New York, NY

Chinatown Ice Cream Factory Restaurant Review

: A cartoonish Asian lion beckons from the sign of this ice cream shop that is one of the best endings to a meal in Chinatown. Among its 40 flavors, you'll find the familiar vanilla and chocolate, but, for an unusual experience, try one of the many Asian flavors like ginger, mango, almond cookie, green tea, lychee or red bean. The pink color and sweetness of the red bean makes it especially popular with youngsters. Candy, nuts, fortune cookies, chocolates and T-shirts---which also feature the shop's mascot---are also sold.
