Something in the pastry case caught his eye, so he also picked up two cookies. I think these were pistachio – I wound up trying a little bit, and it was chewy, nutty, and tasty. I don’t know that this was something I would go out of my way to pick up for myself – if you really like pistachios, though, this might be to your liking. (Perhaps Noah will chime in with what he thought?)
The promised kulfi came in these cute plastic containers that had a plastic stick with lid stuck into them.
On the lid were these directions. I had a little trouble with mine.
So Noah decided to show me the proper way, using his own to demonstrate (he had pistachio flavored kulfi; I think he really likes pistachios).
He succeeded in freeing his kulfi in pristine condition.
When I finally managed to pull mine from its confines, it had this huge crack down the middle! Fortunately, this didn’t affect the flavor, and I enjoyed the mango-flavored kulfi. The ice cream was a little creamier, light in flavor and very rich. I liked it, and I wound up getting another mango one the following week after I visited Ranger BBQ again.
Yvo says: This cute shop just a block from the 74th/Broadway/Roosevelt Ave. stop on the E/F/M/R/7 train station has a lot of goodies for purchase. The long counter displays many treats (like the pistachio cookies), and the freezer has a variety of flavors of kulfi pops. For $1.25/pop, I can’t imagine any reason not to go pick one up to try when you’re in the area – or keep your eyes peeled for kulfi in any store in the Jackson Heights area, as I saw a couple of other places with signs advertising kulfi. Yum! Perfect treat on a hot summer day.
