In Which We Wait in Line for Dulce de Leche-laced, Salt-speckled, Chocolate-dipped Soft Serve

photo (6)Never one to ignore the local delicacies, I ventured to Big Gay Ice Cream with my friend Zoe, for a taste of the East Village flavor (the neighborhood to which I’ve just returned!) and some heavenly creamy goodness. After 15-20 minutes, we finally entered the hallowed halls (read: small, bright room) and ordered the much-loved, and cheekily named Salty Pimp.

Cloud-like vanilla soft serve was loftily layered on a cone (don’t worry–I also requested a coating of Nutella inside the cone–keeping it light is my motto), pierced with lashings of carameltastic dulce de leche, studded with flakes of sea salt and, of course, dipped entirely in chocolate.

There’s a reason why people wait in line for this.
