Chinatown Ice Cream Factory

Chinatown Ice Cream Factory

Location: Chinatown (Bayard Street b/t Mott Street and Elizabeth Street)

What We Ordered: Hannah - Lychee; Jon - Red Bean

Arriving at the shop just before 9pm, we were met with a line of locals and tourists who all had the same after dinner dessert plan. The line looped around the store and out the door, but moved relatively quickly and we had ice cream in-hand in less time than it takes for a local train to arrive at your station on a Saturday night at 2am.
