Dozens of flavors of rice puddings and toppings??? What's not to love??? What a unique idea for an eating establishment! Located in Little Italy, the place is busy and with good reason. Delicious rice pudding, cute bowls and spoons that you get to take with you, and entertaining signs posted all over the restaurant. Genius! I look for places that are unique to an area and this one sure satisfies. They let you sample the flavors before deciding which to order. I ordered the French Toast rice pudding with a cinnamon raisin crumble topping in the "solo" size. It was a lot of rice pudding. I recommend getting the trio sampler. That way, you get to enjoy a variety! YUM!!!

First, you will notice all the very funny and entertaining signs.
Then try a flavor or two of the rice pudding. Ironically, I thought I hated rice pudding but here it is different. This is a fun place to visit and try. The servings are huge though so you will want to bring someone with you to share.
Definitely something you don't find everywhere else!

My family had been raving about this place and so when I was in the area I knew I had to try it. So glad I did!! So delicious! We sampled about 10 different types. I opted for original although the mascarpone was also good. Yes it's expensive and I do think a smaller size, maybe 1/2 for 1/2 the price would be a wise decision. One small is enough for 2. But the atmosphere, the great signs the flavors.... All worth a trip back sometime.

Best rice pudding you've ever had! This spot is creative, great atmosphere, and is always entertaining to read their signs. It also helps that they have a ton of pudding flavors to choose from! You won't be sorry!
There's limited seating, but worth the wait if you want to eat it on site.

Sweet rich desserts are great
Brings back sweet memory of rice galore
Very offending messages and signs around the shop
Not too polite staff
Plastic usage is dangerous for our environment specially if NYC is bad on recycles
What is with the signs again? Being thin and stuff around the place very offending whether you thin or fat? Watch for your words
Rice puddings are best!
Good for take out specially you don't have good tables and chairs
Unfriendly and not accommodating staff
