This will be my last NY food post for a while.  For the last day to cap off the trip, we went to Rice To Riches in Nolita.  This was actually really close to our Blue Ribbon meal a few posts ago.  Rice To Riches is basically the equivalent to Baskin Robbins 31 flavors in LA.  Instead of many choices of ice cream, you have many choices for tapioca.  You also have the option of sampling any flavor that you want.  I’m not a huge tapioca person, but I was willing to give this a try.

What you see here is a duo of flavors.  From what I recall, the brown is some type of coffee flavored tapioca with coffee beans, and the white is banana walnut tapioca.  The coffee flavored tapioca was underwhelming because the coffee flavor wasn’t as prominent as I’d had hope.  There were some chunks of the coffee beans, but it was a little sparse.  The banana walnut tapioca surprisingly had stronger flavors than the coffee.  The banana flavor was very distinct, and there were some small chunks of banana.

In the end, this was a unique dessert.  I still prefer ice cream over this, but I suppose if and when I felt like shoving flavored tapioca, I wouldn’t mind coming back here again in my next New York trip.
