a similar experience at Motorino, another brick oven pizza place, perhaps the sogginess is just a characteristic of these types of pizzas. My other complaints are that the cheese didn't fasten to the pie very well and that it didn't have enough basil. But the crust was nicely charred and had enough salt to keep it from being bland.
recently opened a stand in Chelsea Market. I opted for a rhubarb spice pop. These popsicles are fruity and not too watery. This particular flavor reminded me of cooked fruit, similar to apples in a pie or poached peaches. It was pretty mild and could have used more spice, but it was refreshing on a warm afternoon.
Shack Attack: Vanilla custard (normally comes with chocolate, but we substituted for fear that it would be too much chocolate — yes, there is such a thing) hot fudge, chocolate truffle cookie dough, Valrhona chocolate chunks and chocolate sprinkles.
Saturday's flavor: Red Velvet
The Shack Attack concrete was great for hitting that chocolate craving. The soft cookie dough chunks were sizeable and worked well with the crunchier chocolate chunks and sprinkles.
I was definitely impressed by Red Velvet. It's a party in a cup — cake and ice cream! There were large chunks of red velvet cake folded into a solid custard that tasted like vanilla icing. It was an addictive combination, one that I want to get back to before the month is over.
