Yesterday I walked the Brooklyn Bridge for the second time – this time from Manhattan into Brooklyn. Despite having about four times as many people as it should have on it, it was a lovely afternoon for a trek to “the Other” outer borough (Queens rules!).
At the other side, waiting for me, was The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory! I’ve been fixated on going here since I saw Rachael Ray go there on an episode of “$40 a Day”.
On our way there we passed Grimaldi’s – and the line to get in was at least 100 people deep! You’ll never catch me waiting in line for hours on a beautiful day for some pizza (although I guess I’ll never have that option…).
When we got to Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory there was also a line, but then we saw that there was a little cart outside selling the ice cream as well (they just didn’t have sundaes or toppings). Fine with me!
I got some Peaches and Cream and sat down by the water to enjoy.
Now, I’m going to be frank with you – this didn’t totally blow my mind. As promised, it was very “pure” tasting, and you could tell that they used a high quality cream. I really wanted more peach flavor though! I get it, I get it, they just use peaches, no peach-flavored syrup or added junk to enhance the taste. It was a bit lack-luster to me though.
Next time I’ll get something with chocolate – chocolate has never let me down.
Then, I see that there’s a food stand selling vegetarian tacos for $3!
A girl can’t be expected to walk through an art museum without the proper fuel, right?
Corn tortillas, beans, salsa, cheese, spicy sour cream sauce, and a lime on top.
Off to the Brooklyn Museum!
