Rice to Riches

Even blasé Soho-ites were a little bemused when this space-age shop opened, serving nothing but rice pudding in flavors that sounded like bad names: Subborn Banana, Black Cherry Birthday Suit, Coconut Coma. But the orange plastic take-out bowls are groovy (and reusable), the puddings are tasty, and the place is open till midnight on the weekends. Oh, how sweet it is.

I can't get enough of this place. Yes - it's a little pricey for rice pudding, but damn it, it's delicious! I was first extremely skeptical about it. A place that sells nothing but rice pudding? Who even eats that? But I was wrong - they know what they are doing. I have tried multiple combinations and have yet to be disappointed. 

My favorite combination of all so far is to do half french toast, half original, with toasted pound cake. TRY THIS ASAP! The graham cracker topping is also bomb.

Do stay away from the caramel vanilla sauce topping though; not so great, definitely not necessary.
