Vanilla is the basis of most of the treats here, but that’s the only “vanilla” thing about this ice cream shop, which serves up outrageously decadent treats like “Salty Pimp” (ice cream with dulce de leche, sea salt, and chocolate dip), “Mermaid” (ice cream with key lime curd, whipped cream, and crushed graham crackers), and “Mexican Affo’Gay”To” (with spicy hot chocolate, cayenne pepper, shaved chocolate, and ice cream).
