Lakay Tropical Ice Cream

The name of this Haitian bakery explains what you should be eating here: ice cream. It’s rich, creamy, and almost closer in consistency to sorbet. Their tropical flavors come in a handful of varieties like pineapple, passionfruit, strawberry and more refreshing scoops that are incredibly appropriate for a hot summer day. But they also serve a handful of very tasty meat patties here, which resemble pastelitos in the texture and flakiness of the dough. They are stuffed with chicken, beef, herring, and the perfect size for a snack before dinner if you happen to have a late reservation at Boia De down the street.
