An important note for anyone going to Max & Mina's: They're observant, so they're *closed* on SATURDAYS. Some friends and I found that out the hard way a few months ago. So, I still haven't tasted their ice cream. A poppyseed flavor is mentioned in a Chowhound thread. Sounds fascinating.

Mmm, that looks really good! I'll have to keep that in mind the next time I'm in Brooklyn.

I don't think I've ever had picaditas. They look like sopes.

Mangosteen sorbet?!? HOLY HECK. I don't get out to Park Slope very often but I might have to make a special trip just for that! Mmmmmmmmm!

$15/lb? Gosh, and I thought these vendors' mangosteens were expensive at $9/lb. Although maybe you still get more actual fruit meat from wong pei, since the weight of the mangosteens is largely from the inedible rinds.

Hmmm. I'll have to get a Chinese friend to write down "spare ribs with taro" and maybe "red-cooked rabbit" in Mandarin for me.

Perhaps because I'm a salt fiend, I loved loved LOVED the dry spicy tasty diced chicken with ginger and peanut. I keep wanting to go back and get it again. And those radishes! Wow! I might start dreaming about those. I never thought I'd relish radishes so much.

"The problem isn't calories, it's carbohydrates. Until oreos become made out of meat and cheese, you'll still get fat eating them." Any double-blind scientific studies from reliable sources proving this? Or just junk science? "...replace their flour with wheat free gluten free flours and to eliminate sugars by replacing with erythritol/stevia." That's wildly expensive.

This is delightful and made me smile. Now, *my* funeral on the other hand....

You spelled "favorites" incorrectly. It doesn't have an apostrophe. Speaking of poor grammar, do you think maybe "Baltimore's Singing Taxidriver" (sic) is a title passed down from generation to generation? I mean, could there still be a singing taxi driver out there in Charm City, carrying on the work of his father and grandfather before him? And still incorrectly mashing the words "taxi" and "driver" together into one, to keep up the old tradition?
You can avoid being rickrolled via TinyURL by typing in "preview" as a subdomain in front of the TinyURL address. For instance:
