It’s pretty hard for anyone to turn down ice cream. One of the cutest options here in NYC is Taiyaki! They company’s mission is “to unlock a magical exploration of the palette one Taiyaki NYC creation at a time.” They brought a traditional Japanese desert here to the city and have been taking over your instagram feed.
Basically its super fun ice cream, upon ordering you can chose a cup or fish cone (you better go for the fish cone, it’s so cute). They have classic flavors such as vanilla and chocolate and more traditional Japanese flavors such as matcha! You get to customize your order with toppings like mochi!
However, you aren’t limited to ice cream. They also sell milkshakes (which was right up Markus’ alley). Probably the most famous is their Unicorn Float. It literally comes in a mini floatie and is actually adorable. They also use paper straws, so there’s another plus for those of us who have been trying to limit our plastic waste.
They are located near Soho, a perfect midday or afternoon pick me up after a day of shopping. It could even make a super cute mini-date!
If you are in the area you need to check them out! Its such a great photo-op plus its a great sweet snack~
