Why haven't we always eaten our soft serve out of fish cones? SomiSomi has been breaking Instagram with its social media-ready dessert: swirls of flavored soft serve held by an open-mouthed fish cone. Choose from flavors like green tea, banana, milk tea or combo swirls, then add either red bean, custard or nutella as filling. Your next step? Snap away.

A friend took me to Somi Somi for a quick dessert. We go there 10 minutes before closing. Not only was there a huge line, but they were turning people away after closing. It is an irresistable photo opportunity for sure, as I saw the photos plastered all over social media. Who can resist not photographing soft serve ice cream served in a fish shaped cone?

They make the cones fresh every few minutes so they are somewhat warm when served. They bottom of the cone gets a topping like red bean or nutella. You can then choose your soft serve ice cream flavors, or swirl two flavors. They stick in a skewer with strawberries and marshmallows. You can also pick a dry topping of cookie crumbs or cereal.

I went with the banana chocolate swirl ice cream, nutella and topped with Fruity Pebbles (mainly for photo purposes). While my main motive was posting the cone photos, the flavor really impressed me too
