Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Food Cart Tour is my exploration of the hard-working vendors feeding NYC’s population every day.

Kim Ima is one of my favorite vendors. She’s been sweetening up New York with her homebaked treats from The Treats Truck since 2007. And even though she now owns a bakery in Brooklyn, she still brings the truck out to see all of her customer’s smiling faces. Including mine.

My search for the best ice cream in New York continues ….

DAVEY'S ICE CREAM, 137 First Avenue (between East 9th Street and St. Marks Place), East Village

It frustrates me when I order a scoop of ice cream and after a few licks, it begins to lose its flavor. It may taste like mint on the first few samples, but soon it gives way to the cold and only tastes of cream and sugar (not bad flavors, to be sure). It’s not dissimilar to how bubble gum’s flavor soon flattens out. I want the flavor of my ice cream to last from first lick to last.

I have considered that maybe my tastebuds numb to the cold, but I don’t believe it. I blame it more on ice cream makers who aren’t aggressive (or authentic) enough with their flavors. A heavy hand and real fruits or herbs (as opposed to liquid flavorings) can go a long way.

One thing I can say about Davey’s Ice Cream, the colorful factory in the East Village, is that the flavors really last.
