[Review] Asian style Ice Cream from Wong's Ice Cream Store (Toronto, Ontario)

2:24:00 PM

Toronto is currently under a black charcoal ice cream madness trend from "Ihalo Krunch." Sadly, there was another ice cream that appeared during the same time but hasn't draw the same level of attention due to the hype and Instagram photo bombs. Wong's Ice Cream Store just opened recently in June of 2017 as the latest Asian-stype ice cream parlour at Gerrard and Broadview Ave. I was leaving a downtown event and decided to drop by for a quick visit.

Atmosphere:
The location is located in one of the older chinatown areas in Toronto. The store is very spacious and clean. One side of the store has a selection of sweets (ex. Rabbit candies), snacks and beverages for foodies while the other side has a freezer with bulk packages of their various ice cream flavours. They also had a sandwich bar seat (very cute).

Service:
There was one main server and she was very friendly. She was generous in letting me sample many different flavours!

Food:
They specialized in Asian-style ice creams. The unique flavours available were:

  • Black Sesame Ice Cream with Salted Duck Egg (aka Chinese Tiger Tail)
  • Orange Candied Giner
  • Ube (purple yam)
  • Vietnamese Coffee
  • Coconut Mango Sticky Rice
  • Lemongrass Lime Sorbet
  • Wasabi Honey
  • Rosewater White Chocolate Jasmine
  • Chocolate Yuzu
I sampled many of the flavours and narrowed my choices to two flavours: Black Sesame or Wasabi Honey. Can you imagine a spicy cold flavour ice cream? It was an eye opener.  The Black Sesame with Salted Duck Egg won for this day. It was dark nutty light coffee flavour with sweet and contrasting salty egg texture. It was too good!

Would I come back? For sure! Next time, my tummy will be ready for more scoops.
