Day #30 : Soft Swerve
Today I went to have an ice cream shop with my friends which recently opened in Chinatown called ‘Soft Swerve’. The ice cream shop offers unusual flavors, you can order vanilla but you will also find Asian-inspired ice cream flavors like ube, matcha and black sesame. Ube which has become a sensation, is a purple yam, made popular by a Filipino dessert called halo halo. Purple yam is common in a couple of countries in Asia, including the Philippines. At first all of us were skeptical about eating a yam-flavored ice cream but it is as delicious as it looks. You can also swirl two flavors together in either a black chocolate or red cinnamon cone. They have unique toppings as well which include strawberry syrup, toasted coconut and fruity pebbles. Some signatures sundaes are named after city streets in New York which include Mulberry street and Mott street. So next time you’re craving something for desserts, you know where to go for some sweet purple ice cream!
