Honey Lavendar, Red Hot Chocolate, Rice Pudding--Moorenko's offers unique gourmet ice cream flavors as well as more familiar ones such as coconut, french vanilla, milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate. The ice cream has the fabulous rich, silky texture that comes with lots of creamy butter fat. It has a great mouth feel and, as the menu promises, is "cheaper than therapy" and probably a whole lot more satisfying for most people. They even offer an emergency hotline for people in the grip of ice cream emergencies.
The atmosphere is your basic ice cream parlor without the cutsey Ben and Jerry's frills. You can get ice cream or expresso drinks and there's also ice cream to go. The lone employee seemed very detached from his work and offered no suggestions or sales pitches.
The only downside is that people who suffer from lactose intolerance will experience it big time here. This is the real deal when it comes to milkfat!
Silver Spring is becoming a Mecca for Ice Cream Lovers. Once you've tried Moorenko's, check out York Castle Tropical Ice Cream at the intersection of 16th Street and Georgia Avenue for exotic flavors such as rum raisin, jack fruit and soursop.
