ice cream pop-up shop
with unicorn floats
BY CARLOTTA MOHAMED
Community leaders welcomed
a new ice cream pop-up shop in
Flushing on May 24.
Unicorn floats and Japanese-style
fish-shaped waffles were served
with ice cream at the grand opening
of Taiyaki, located at Queens
Crossing Food Court at 136-17 39th
Ave., where hundreds of people
were lined up at the new shop.
Taiyaki is a classic street vendor
snack in Japan that consists of a
warm fish-shape cake with red bean
filling. The waffle-like Japanese
snack is very popular at street fairs
and festivals in Japan.
Striving to keep their customers
happy and satisfied while leaving
a minimal footprint on the planet,
Taiyaki NYC focuses on quality and
consistency in the products provided
to the community.
The shop serves different flavors
of ice cream as well as other ingredients
placed in the mouth of the
fish-shaped waffle cone.
Taiyaki’s ice cream and waffles
are made from the highest quality
ingredients from socially responsible
vendors and distributors, according
to its website. The Taiyaki waffles
are made fresh on-site, and their
soft serve ice cream is produced and
churned in small batches to preserve
the true integrity of how a real soft
serve should taste.
Taiyaki also has other locations in
Chinatown; Williamsburg; Miami,
Florida; Boston, Massachusetts;
and a new opening in downtown
All weekend long, during the
grand opening celebration, orders
over $15 will receive a complimentary
Unicorn Float balloon
(drink not included and while supplies
The Taiyaki NYC pop-up shop
will be open from now until Oct. 21.
