Grasshopper Pie

Last night, after our late dinner of shared Jamaican meat patties and plaintains at Melvin's Juice Box/Miss Lily's Bake Shop...

Ashley: You're gonna have to let me treat you to something.
Me: Will it give me cellulite?
Ashley (laughing): Yes.

We walked over to Emack & Bolio's, where she treated me to a scoop of their Grasshopper Pie, mint ice cream with crushed Oreos and chocolate chips.

Side note: I always thought the name of this place was funny. At first, it registered in my head as "E. Coli & Polio".

Stepping into Emack & Bolio's feels like traveling back in time to a groovy 1970's ice-cream shop. Their colorful hand-drawn menus offer organic and hormone-free ice cream in a bunch of fun flavors with names like Grasshopper Pie and Deep Purple Co. There's also a display case with shelves of wild chocolate-dipped waffle cones encrusted with M&M's, Rice Krispies Treats, Fruit Loops, and what have you. Personally, I like The Original Oreo ice cream (a.k.a. Cookies n' Cream elsewhere). I usually take my cone across the street and eat it while walking through the Seed Labyrinth on Laguardia Place.
