Wowfulls Ice Creams: From Instagram To NYC’s Streets

Dining Wowfulls Desserts Chocolate

We couldn’t be happier when, a while ago, we found out that Wowfulls announced they would open their first brick and mortar store in Manhattan! Hurray for Wowfulls ice creams!

We’ve been following their growth and in awe with their Social Media success…we do have to agree that Wowfulls ice creams are THE perfect dessert to photograph right!?

These guys started in grand style, being part of the Smorgasburg and in no time became their “to-go dessert spot”.

They explain their magic:

“We serve 1950’s-style Hong Kong egg waffles also known as Gai Dàn Jai. The taste and texture of our Gai Dàn Jai — crispy on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside, was once only found in the streets of Hong Kong. We’ve cultivated that awesomeness here.

Not only are we introducing one of Hong Kong’s most famous street snacks to foodies in the States, we’re also injecting our cultural spin to Wowfulls. For example, we blend Japanese Matcha to create our Green Tea egg waffle with white chocolate chips.”

This is what you can have:

  • Chocolate Wowfull with ice cream topped with Oreo Cookie Crumbs & chocolate banana Pocky
  • Matcha Green Tea with White Chocolate Chip Wowfull with ice cream topped with mochi & green tea Pocky
  • Original “Gai Dån Jai” Egg Waffles with ice cream topped with fresh strawberries & strawberry Pocky

OH-MY-GOD! Crazy, right? It’s actually hard to pick one to try first, so you’ll probably “have” to go back for more!

Now, the other best part is that they cater events too! We’re positive that your friends will talk about your gathering for an entire year after having some Wowfulls ice creams.

If you don’t have time to organize your event, let our Concierge Services experts give you a hand!

Not much more to say, than “Enjoy!”

Lastly, if you want to uncover more unique vendors that started at Smorgasburg, you might want to find more about the guys from Big Mozz! They do have one of the freshest and creamiest mozzarelas in town!

Hours: Monday – Sunday: 1pm – 9pm

Locations: 309 Houston Street, but you can still find them at Smorgasburg (Saturday’s in Williamsburg and Sunday’s at Prospect Park)

Hey, Steve! I want some handcrafted ice cream, please!

Dining Steve's Ice Cream Cookies'n'Cream

Steve’s Ice Cream started back in the early 1970’s as a small handcrafted ice cream shop with only the will of offering the most innovative “mix-ins” around.

I mean, who in the world doesn’t enjoy handcrafted ice cream? If this person exists, be careful with them! Ha! Just joking… But, we do know that New Yorkers are pretty fond of ice creams, since the ice cream shops are always overflowing with people, even in the winter.

In the beginning, they had a hunch that people out there would line up in huge lines to get a taste of their artisanal ice creams. They started out as a small little brand wanting to show the world their expertise. And, grew to become a brand that people not only lined up for their ice cream, but outbraved themselves in the middle of snow storms to guarantee there scoop!

Besides the traditional flavors, they also offer amazing non-dairy ice creams and sorbets.

With the years, and the renowned name they’ve got today, they explained that a few (not many), things changed.

“We still use “mix-ins” but now they’re a little more grown-up, with fresh, natural ingredients, and to create our signature flavors, we work directly with some of the most innovative and inspired artisans around. It took a while, but small-batch has finally gone big time. And that’s pretty sweet.”

They have some pretty interesting flavors like pretzels, honey pistachio, pies & sweet cream, Mexican chili chocolate, southern banana pudding, speculoos cookie butter and so many others!

Today, they are literally spread throughout the US. In NY, you can find them in several different markets in all the Boroughs – except Staten Island.

So, it shouldn’t be hard try some! I want some handcrafted ice cream!
