rice to riches• 16 comments •
We would like to preface this post with the fact that, prior to visiting New York, we hated rice pudding. We hated the texture, we hated the flavour, and we hated how it looks. So, naturally, when we came across a place that ONLY serves rice pudding, it made complete sense to go in.
After dinner at Lombardi's, we made our way to the subway to make it back to our hotel, but not before noticing a building that was so brightly lit that you couldn't help but wonder what was going on inside. We peered in and realized that it was a place that one of our lovely readers had recommended. The cheeky signs lured us in. Rice to Riches is a trendy spot in NoLIta that has rice pudding in every flavor you could imagine.
It was difficult to decide on a flavor. We didn't want to commit to buying two desserts so we shared one. We settled on french toast flavored pudding with strawberries on top. It was unbelievable.
We would buy this by the buckets if we lived in NYC (because you actually can) and you can also get it delivered (like everything else in New York) and then we could get fat in the privacy of our own homes until we overdosed on delicious rice pudding.
