Longan Sorbet at Sky Ice

Regular readers may recall my love of longans, a fruit which I first tasted during my trip to Vietnam. On a recent summer night Donny and I sought out Sky Ice, a Thai ice cream shop here in Park Slope. Donny sampled several varieties (including durian) before settling on Thai Iced Tea ice cream, but I zeroed in on the longan sorbet almost immediately. Although the texture was a little crumbly, there was no mistaking the pure and delicious flavor of fresh longans, albeit in sorbet form. Next time I’m gonna go for the mangosteen.

  1. There’s not enough ‘fat’ in this dessert. How intense was the durian ice cream? I think once you got the ice cream base, the sky is the limit.

  2. Hah, I live a block away from there. Their savory food’s not bad either, though it’s a little odd to be enjoying Thai food in an ice cream parlor. We tried some of their “wackier” ice creams – the Vegetable (avocado, yam, broccoli) and Black Sesame Seaweed (surprisingly good, and gets better with each bite). Didn’t try any of their lettuce cup or sushi roll presentations….yet.
