New pop-up restaurant in NYC offers pickle ice cream

May 17, 2018

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.
