New pop-up restaurant in NYC offers pickle ice cream
NEW YORK (AP) — A pop-up ice cream and dumpling shop in New York City is serving up a brand new flavor of ice cream: pickle ice cream
Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co., located in the Upper West Side neighborhood of Manhattan, dishes out gigantic servings of chartreuse soft serve topped with pickle slices for $5. Executive Chef Glenroy Brown tells WABC-TV that the ice cream is created with fresh-pressed cucumber, giving it a light and balanced flavor.
Brown notes that most customers assume the ice cream is briny or sour based on the name.
Popular local eatery Jacob’s Pickles is behind the pop-up restaurant, which also serves dumplings and noodles in addition to ice cream.
Brown says he and his team developed the ice cream from scratch because they wanted a unique dessert.
