New York City Sweets: Cake, Paletas and more!

OddFellows Ice Cream Co. - New York City

When The Astronomer and I visited New York City in the past, we’d arrive with long lists of places to eat, sights to see, and people to visit. Traveling to The Big Apple with June last fall, we took a more laid back approach. Instead of filling our itinerary with lots of “stuff” to do, we spent our days wandering and snacking around TriBeCa and the East Village. Here are some of the sweet detours we took along the way…

Dough - New York City

A trip to New York isn’t complete without a doughnut from Chef Fany Gerson. She opened a Manhattan outlet of Dough in 2014, which made it much easier for us to get our deep-fried high on this visit. Making the trek to Bed-Stuy would’ve been pretty tough with a baby.

The flavor that caught our eye was the Tropical Chile, a giant yeast doughnut glazed with a chili-spiked passion fruit icing. It was tangy, hot, and sweet. Delightful.

{swoon} Apple Cider Donuts at Wright’s Farm

Wrights Farms - Gardiner, NY

I hope you don’t mind that I’m writing about one of fall’s most delectable delights on the first day of winter. Seasonality is hardly important when considering apple cider doughnuts this good.

While in upstate New York this past September for an American Chinese food symposium, The Astronomer and I made a pit stop at Wright’s Farm to partake in the quintessential autumn ritual of apple picking, followed by apple cider doughnut eating.  The joys of East Coast living…

{swoon} Milky Bun at Afters Ice Cream

Afters Ice Cream - Fountain Valley - Milky Bun

Meet the Milky Bun—a brilliant marriage of hot and cold, sweet and even sweeter.  Imagine a hefty mound of ice cream, embellished with crispety crunchity toppings, sandwiched between a warm glazed doughnut. I dare you not to swoon.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams – Los Angeles (Los Feliz)

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams - Los Feliz - Los Angeles

L.A.’s ice cream scene is on fire. The local offerings have always been superb (see: Fosselman’s, Carmela, and Scoops), but with national superstars like Columbus’ Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Portland’s Salt & Straw coming to town recently, there’s never been a better time to go out for a scoop, take home a pint, or better yet, both.

Founded by Jeni Britton Bauer in 2002, Jeni’s proudly makes every ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt “from the ground up” using milk from grass-grazed cows and local produce from small farms. Quality input means quality output—it’s as simple as that.

Whereas The Astronomer selected light and refreshing flavors on our visit, I desired something far more decadent. For him: one scoop of red raspberry sorbet and another of mango lassi frozen yogurt. Both were tart, tangy, and just sweet enough.
