An ice-cream sundae isn’t just a hotchpotch of scoops, toppings and sauces. If done right, its all the dessert you need in the world and if done wrong, looks like a hasty and messy DIY attempt.
Chefs and desert geniuses in New York City have come up with innovative variations of the classic dessert and they’re just as good, if not better than the original.
If your sweet tooth is giving you an aching want for sundaes, just open up the NYC bus map, hop on the next bus and step into one of these locations!
Here’s a list of some of the best ice-cream sundaes in New York City:
1. Pearl Oyster Bar
Hot fudge sundaes at Pearl is the perfect end to the already perfect menu at Pearl Oyster Bar. The nostalgia hits hard with this classic three-ingredient sundae, comprising of housemade vanilla ice cream, dripping hot fudge (made with dark chocolate, malt vinegar and vanilla beans) and a generous dollop of whipped cream.
2. Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream
We aren’t the biggest fans of Kanye West but when it comes Morgenstern’s sundae with the same name, we are in love. Nicholas Morgenstern makes a killer raw-milk ice cream that lies on a bed of Japanese milk bread that’s dripping with honey and caramelised with a blowtorch. The delicate balance of flavours will just take you places.
3. Brooklyn Farmacy
This revamped apothecary, a vintage spot is the best place to enjoy your ice-cream sundae in the city. There’s a whopping 18 speciality sundaes to choose from and a lot of kid-friendly topping options like tiny marshmallows, nutella and rainbow sprinkles. Try their Flyin’ Hawaiian that tastes like a piña colada in an ice-cream bowl.
