After a year of hearing rave reviews about the soft-serve ice cream at Big Gay Ice Cream, I finally made it over to their East Village shop on an unseasonably warm winter day. After waiting in a line that curled out the door, I was greeted by their very friendly staff and opted for their cult favourite, the Salty Pimp. The Salty Pimp consists of vanilla soft serve, dulce de leche, sea salt and chocolate dip. My ice cream was beyond delicious and definitely worth the wait. I can't wait until spring (finally) arrives so that I can return to try more of their creative ice cream concoctions.
