This store is covered in despicable racist and sexiest signs. Not funny or cute, just incredibly offensive. Walked in and walked right out - I will not give my money to this unethical establishment.

Best rice pudding I've ever had without question. I have visited Rice to Riches every time I've ever gone to NYC and it has never let me down once. It has the same fun atmosphere and same amazing rice pudding that hasn't changed a bit,...and I hope it never does. Highly recommended. I always go for a duo with the chocolate chip and the mascarpone personally, but I've never tasted anything that wasn't great.More

After 2 years later, we are back at "Rice to Riches (add: 37 Spring street, New York, NY 10012, Phone: 1-212-274-0008). We are pleasantly surprised that the place is still open but we are very grateful that they are in business. Their rice puddings are...heavenly. Not only do we eat at the location but we also purchase to take with us. Their decor is perfect & so is the rice pudding, Only thing is obvious that the staff is not friendly to anyone. They are not even wearing masks which is concerning. Otherwise, "Rice to Riches" should always be open because everyone loves their rice puddings!More

What a wonderful place to have dessert. I have never seen this amount of different rice pudding selection before. Reasonably prices and very very tasty.

Great experience here at "Rice to Riches!" This is a must try dining experience. The toppings are numerous as well as your options... Make sure you at least visit here to read the decor "I like my rice pudding like I like my men..... RICH!"..."Size Matters." "We've Got Big Ones." For those of you who want to share you can order a MOBY which serves 10 or a SUMO which serves 5, the OMNI serves 2-3, the EPIC serves 1-2 or the SOLO. I would strongly suggest the SOLO and get many. You can go safe with vanilla or butter pecan.... but decadent as well. THIS IS A MUST!More

I never go to NYC without a trip to Rice to Riches. Really, if you love (or even just like) rice pudding you HAVE to here. So many incredible flavors of rice pudding (and yes they have original if you are a purist) - I...have taken friends there who now ship it across the US for parties. Really, it is a fun walk from underground and sooooo worth it. For a meal or snack. Go. (THEY ONLY SERVE RICE PUDDING... who could want more?!?)More

This place has been going strong for over 12 years. It offers up decadent rice pudding in over a dozen flavors each day. It is irreverent and always worth a stop when in Little Italy.

If you like rice pudding this is the place for you. If you love rice pudding this is paradise. Year round and seasonal flavors available with a toppings such as Burst (Oven roasted Fresh Fruit), Black Magic (Chocolate Crumble), Mischief (Graham Cracker) and more. I...indulged in Coast to Coast Cheesecake with Toasted Coconut. Who knew that rice pudding could be so fun and varied. Packaging is unique and tons of catchy phrases adorn the walls and windows. A definite must visit for a rice pudding fix. You can always sample the different flavors before you make your selection.More

Everytime I am in Newyork, I make it a point to visit this “Sinful Heaven”. Addictive and don’t over eat. I bought - vanilla orange, mango peach and butterscotch. You can try the original, butterscotch, caramel and panna cota. Sorry, I took a video, but...can’t post here, so...I will post it on Instagram. Make sure you visit and say - hello to Anushka from Nepal who was cheerful and pleasant.More

The first time I visited RtR was about 11 years ago, and it was just as great this time around. Wait was average, so much variation to choose from, but you can taste a few to decide which one you want. Went with the Rum...Raisin and added a cherry fruit topping. Perfect!More

You can choose from a very big variety of rice pudding flavors and toppings. Be sure to taste some of the options before committing to one. I had made a choice but the guy who helped me recommended other flavor and it was much better....The rice pudding is delicious (I’m usually not a fan but I really liked this one), and the place is really fun as it is decorated with signs that tell you to forget about diets and just go ahead and enjoy your dessert.More

After a wonderful dinner at a restaurant nearby, decided to get some dessert. As we walked by, this place was bustling with a long lines. Decided to give Rice To Riches a try. Essentially, all they serve is Rice Pudding with many different flavors. As...we were a large party, we ordered a couple of assortments: Traditional, Coconut, Panna Cotta (my favorite), and Butterscotch, Oreo, and French Toast... so hard to decide, as the list was endless. They also offered toppings. Looking forward to coming back and trying a few more flavors.More

Our NYC friends all told us we had to go here. We decided to stop for a snack while shopping in SoHo. We each ordered a different flavor and shared our pudding. It was soooooooo good. The portions were so large that it was our...dinner. The only advice I'd give is to order just one chocolate option. We had two and it was too rich.More

I just called them and they unfortunately don't have any vegan options. All puddings are made with whole milk and half & half.
