When owner Lena Tam noticed that her Chinatown neighborhood had little to offer in the way of sweets (save for a few bubble tea joints), she took the initiative to open up a shop that offers ice cream made right on premises. Tam churns out batches of red velvet and mocha brownie, in addition to Asian flavors like lychee, black sesame, and—hold your nose—durian! Fresh mochi, bubble tea, and customizable cakes are also available.
