Hong Kong Waffle Cones from Eggloo

Eggloo specializes in three different types of Hong Kong egg waffles - original, chocolate, or green tea - filled with either hard scoop (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, or cookies & cream) or soft serve (Thai tea, green tea, or swirl) ice cream with delicious toppings that range from crushed Oreo, almonds, and fruity pebbles to chocolate syrup, condensed milk, and whipped cream. My personal creation made with green tea waffles with Thai tea and green tea soft serve, and then topped with rainbow sprinkles and chewy mochi, was a burst of flavors and textures.

Creamy Soft Serve Ice Cream from Soft Swerve

The latest hype in the NYC dessert scene, Soft Swerve features four different Asian-inspired flavors. These mouthwatering flavors include the iconic purple Ube with Macapuno Coconut, as well as the classic Matcha Green Tea swirled with Black Sesame. Decorate your perfect soft serve with crunchy, chewy toppings like toasted coconut, almond cookie, or mochi, and don't forget to add drizzles like condensed milk, caramel, or chocolate syrup.

Extravagant Bingsoo from Sweet Moment

As photogenic as they are delicious, bingsoos from Sweet Moment are the perfect treat to cool off the hot summer days. Made with milk shaved ice, these bingsoo come in different flavors like black sesame, chocolate, mango, strawberry, and matcha. The two best-selling items are Matcha Cheesecake with matcha sauce, red bean, mochi, cheesecake, vanilla ice cream, and shaved white chocolate, and Mango Cheese with fresh mango, mochi, cereal, vanilla ice cream, cheesecake bites, and condensed milk.

Cereal-Infused Ice Cream from Milk & Cream Cereal Bar

From Apple Jacks and Captain Crunch to Honey Nut Cheerios and Reese's Puffs, Milk & Cream Cereal Bar allows your creativity to go wild with a wide selection of cereal that you can mix in with your ice cream. Simply choose between vanilla or cookie dough base, blend with your favorite cereal, and top it with fruity, nutty, or sweet toppings like strawberries, Teddy Grahams, gummy bears, or brownie bites. In addition to the cereal-infused ice cream, Milk & Cream Cereal Bar also offers ice cream milkshake and cereal bowl.

Dreamy Cotton Candy Ice Cream from Wu Kong

Wu Kong

The beautiful treat from Wu Kong is two of your favorite childhood treats - cotton candy and ice cream - merged into one dreamy concoction. Choose from mouthwatering ice cream flavors like mint, cookie dough, and strawberry with your choice of topping, like Pocky sticks, animal crackers, and Fruity Pebbles. The waffle cone will be surrounded by colorful, cloud-like cotton candy with sparkles.

Taiwanese Snow Ice from New York Frost Factory

NY Frost Factory

New York Frost Factory brings authentic Taiwanese snow ice to the Big Apple. Let your creativity go wild - given the variety of flavors (passion fruit, lychee, taro, matcha, and even vegan flavors like coconut and peanut butter), toppings (chocolate chips, mochi, almonds, grass jelly, boba), and drizzles (strawberry puree, nutella, and condensed milk), there are hundreds - if not thousands - of creations to your liking.

Cone Churros from Chikalicious


One of the most beloved dessert places in NYC, Chikalicious offers unique dessert that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Served in home-made, cone-shaped crunchy churros with a soft interior, the cone churros are filled with your choice of ice cream or soft serve and toppings. Choose from favorites like S'mores (graham-chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge, toasted marshmallow, and graham crackers) or Green Tea Red Bean (green tea and vanilla swirl, matcha sauce, and red beans), or create your own from different flavors of ice cream, toppings, and sauces.

Unicorn Parade Milkshake from New Territories

New Territories

New Territories brings traditional Hong Kong eats and sweets with a bit of New York flavor, like this popular Unicorn Parade milkshake. Covered in chocolate and rainbow sprinkles rim, the Unicorn Parade is made with artisan vanilla bean ice cream and Ube with marshmallow, Pocky sticks, whipped cream, and fruity pebbles dust.
