The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory

$$$$

The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory is one of those iconic NYC tourist spots that’s rightfully worth visiting. It’s been around for almost half a century, and like all of the most respected 40-something-year-olds you know, it has used its years to fine tune itself. Now there are three locations (Chinatown, the Lower East Side and in Flushing), all serving flavors like Chinese egg custard, red bean, and coconut fudge. While we love green tea oreo and the black sesame best, this is the kind of place where you should try new flavors every time you’re there.
