Any Instagram food enthusiast has probably seen the soft serve ice cream inside of a cone that resembles a fish called Taiyaki. Traditionally, Taiyaki is a Japanese cookie filled with red bean. At Taiyaki NYC located in SoHo, they have taken the cookie and created a lovely ice cream treat.
(Please ignore my lovely chipped nail polish.)
This is probably some of the best ice cream I have ever tried. I ordered the Straight Outta Japan which is matcha and black sesame swirl with a red bean filling in the cone, and mochi and wafer as toppings. The soft serve itself is so creamy and flavorful while the cone and red bean filling truly make the dessert. The mochi and wafer and a beautiful touch that add to the essence of the whole treat. They also have a variety of other flavors and an option to make your own Taiyaki.
I rarely ever go back to ice cream or any sort of restaurant simply because I love trying new things but, Taiyaki is just so good that I have gone back time and time again while also having incredibly random cravings for it. Taiyaki NYC has officially become one of my “spots” and filled a void in my black heart.
