This Taiwanese matcha specialist is best known for its signature green tea ice cream, waffles and other sweet treats, but Gozen Cha has gotten in on the durian trend and has rolled out a limited durian ice cream ($58) that promises an intense aroma. You can smell it coming before it even arrives at the table and the ice cream tastes just like the fruit. While it’s made with fresh D197 durian purée, it’s actually quite light and not overly pungent. The durian pieces also add another layer to the texture.
Time Out rating: 4/5
