Loads of weird and wonderful flavours (for a western palette anyway). Small shop and no where to sit inside, but I really liked the taste tourism on offer by all the flavours. Fairly standard pricing and some nice merch available as well. Maybe not worth...More

Who would think to go to Chinatown for ice cream?! But this place is great. They’re happy for you to sample flavours - we especially loved the lychee, black sesame and Vietnamese coffee. You can get some pretty cool flavoured waffle cones for a couple...More

The ice cream was really tasty in this place. It was recommended by a on online article as one of the highlights of Chinatown. The shop looks really funny. The prices are quite high, we ended up paying close to 4$/scoop.

My family enjoyed our quick journey to Chinatown. While there we visited the famous Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. They are friendly and happy to give samples. I ended up with the almond ice cream. Really yummy! We would go there again if in the area.

You can find unusual flavors like taro and durian but they are overpriced. Depending on the time of the day, and the day of the week there could be a long line. The ice cream were very good, creamy and not overly sweet.

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
