 Personally, my favorite ice cream shop in all of NYC! I'm a sucker for any fruit-infused ice cream, and nothing in NY comes close to Chinatown Ice Cream factor. Of course they have the traditional chocolate, vanilla, etc. However, their best flavors are those such as mango, lychee, and red bean. If you're in an adventurous mood, I also recommend the Pandan or Ube (Taro) flavors. Every fruit within the ice cream tastes fresh. I swear I've never had  a bad scoop.

Beware: The space is tiny, so make sure you know what flavor you and want and then head straight out.
