CBS2’s Alex Denis is spending time exploring some of New York City’s most unique spots offering some delights you can only get in the Big Apple.
On Friday, Denis explored OddFellows — a Brooklyn-based ice cream destination offering off-the-wall flavors and an artisanal style that fits the eclectic vibe of Williamsburg’s downtown strip.
Unique flavor choices include Thai tea ice cream, raspberry sorbet with peppercorn and, for meat lovers — ice cream with chorizo sausage.
If meat’s not your thing, you can always opt for their Maitke option — a vegetarian delight mixed with mushrooms.
Regulars like Melissa Elders can’t get enough.
“It’s really the best there is- I have 2 today ’cause I couldn’t decide,” Elders said. “One [flavor] is “Ants on a Log,” which is celery and raisins and peanut butter, and the other is malt Maitake peanut.”READ MORE: New Yorkers Can Enter To Win Free Giants, Jets And Bills Tickets With COVID Vaccine
Craft ice cream is part of a rising trend in artisanal food and beverages and is turning up in eateries all over the country.
OddFellows chef and co-owner Sam Mason says people are fired up over craft foods and enjoy trying new ingredients. Co-owner Mohan Kumar agrees.
“We’ve spent a lot of time trying to make this an experience,” Kumar said.
OddFellows also has a location in the East Village.
Sales of domestic ice cream topped $11 billion last year.
