In our opinion, the best sweet treats are classics with a twist– if you've had one of La NewYorkina's paletas, which are a Mexican ice pops, you should know exactly what we mean.
Haven't encountered a La Newyorkina pushcart (you must not get out much)? Look no further than Greenwich Village, where their first brick and mortar store opened on Sullivan Street last weekend.
To celebrate their opening, they gave out free paletas all day– sucks if you missed out, but don't worry, they're here to stay.
La Newyorkina's spot previously housed Peanut Butter & Co, but now it'll be hard to miss their bright blue storefront. The interior of the shop is hand-painted with murals and decorated with imported tiles from Merida, Yucaton.
Pastry chef Fany Gerson has been selling her frozen treats for six years now, at over 30 different sellers throughout New York City. They're basically their own boardwalk staple, and now they have a home of their own.
Their new store will be offering old favorites, but also features brand new flavors such as avocado-passion fruit, flan, and fresa fields, which is a strawberry paleta with Maria cookies.
As reported by Eater NY, they will also be serving Gerson's ice cream, which comes in the flavors tres leches, Oaxacan chocolate, tropical margarita, and coffee. Also, don't skip out on traditional water-based Mexican sorbet, nieve de garrafa.
