Taiyaki NYC ice cream shop opened in New York City’s Chinatown last week and its ice cream served in novel fish-shaped cones has made it an Instagram sensation.
In Japan and other parts of Asia teriyaki has been around for over 100 years and is served plain or filled with hard ice cream to form a sandwich. The Taiyaki NYC cones are filled with soft serve ice cream in flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, green tea and black sesame and various toppings like mochi pieces, fresh strawberries and sprinkles.
