Located directly across from the always-packed Boiling Crab is Honeymee, an ice cream shop serving luxuriously creamy soft serve with pure honey. Get the Sweetie, which displays the honey in gorgeous amber swirls, or the Honeymee, which features a giant chunk of honeycomb on top (who needs a cherry?). There are chocolate sauce options as well, but let's be honest—you're here for the honey.

Honeymee is a great dessert option if you're into matcha and/or honey. They're well-known for their matcha ice cream - ice cream topped with matcha powder & honey comb & honey drizzle. The ice cream itself is not that creamy and tastes more like a slushy or frozen yogurt (for true ice cream lovers, you will not appreciate the consistency). I don't think I'd come back here, but it was a trendy place and good to try. They do have menu items beyond the well-known matcha ice cream, but the prices are a bit expensive for anything on the menu. All in all, it looks prettier than it tastes. 


Please, allow yourself to indulge in this fabulous experience, even if, like me, you are not the  number 1 honey fan.

Well, if you are, this place must simply be heaven for your taste buds, with all the toppings involving honey at its best ( including honeycomb chips & a delicious liquid swirl), but you might as well walk in for a truly unforgettable taste of soft-serve, which is, to this day, the best one I have ever had, with a perfect combination of creaminess, not too sweet and very 'milky' indeed, and a remarkable sense of genuinely loving craft.

I would recommend to try it by itself, to savor the milky feeling to its full, but they offer plenty of choices which are also very tempting, the honey+ coffee affogato in particular.

I didn't get to try their drinks,yet, but considering that milkshakes start from the very same ingredients, i.e. honey and milk, I suppose they're just as good.

Little fact: do you know that honey in Mandarin Chinese is  MI and is pronounced 'em'...? Just saying....
