Rice to Riches, New York
A heartfelt cheer for Rice to Riches at 37 Spring Street in New York. As the sign indicates, this Rice Pudding shop is serious about its sweets and the result is a never-ending array of enticing new flavors of well-made rice pudding. Read a few of the many flavor and see if your mouth starts watering: Coconut Coma; Understanding Vanilla; Stubborn Banana; Fluent in French Toast. They're all pretty wonderful but I'm a traditionalist and tend to end up with Cinnamon Sling with Raisins. For a good review, read the New York Times coverage of the shop's opening.
