FACTS: Located in Washington Square West, Philadelphia
WHAT I ORDERED:
Salty Pimp – Vanilla Ice Cream Gets Injected With House-Made Dulce de Leche, Sprinkled with a Bit of Sea Salt, Then Dipped in Chocolate.
Big Gay Ice Cream recently opened in Philadelphia. And, to my delight (and surprise), this is a soft-serve only shop.
Straying from my usual, vanilla with rainbow sprinkles, I ordered one of their most popular specialty cones, the “Salty Pimp.” Considering that I’m not too fond of either chocolate-dipped ice cream, or dulce de leche, what was I thinking? As a result, and not surprisingly, I ended up regretting my decision soon after. In all fairness though, and despite the fact that the “Pimp” turned out to be way too over the top for my taste, I highly recommend it for those of you who enjoy such decadence.
That being said, I really liked the bright and cheery ambience and will happily return.
