Taiyaki NYC is the next big thing. This place has been open right in the middle of Little Italy/Chinatown for about four weeks now. In that small amount of time, Taiyaki has gained a massive following, through explosure on social media platforms. They have even been featured on Buzzfeed!
After seeing the fish-coned treats all over our Instagram feed, we knew we had to check this place out. We actually got the opportunity to sample at Taiyaki NYC last weekend! And yes, it was A-MAZ-ING! We took the trip downtown on a cloudy Saturday afternoon. The place was PACKED with a long line out the door. Talk about a trendy place for an afternoon snack!
Come on, who hasn't seen pics like these on your social media feeds?
Pictured above is the "Matcha Better" and the "IT's CHOCO-LIT" taiyaki. These were some of the "favorites" that Taiyaki offers. We absolutely LOVE how unique the names of the treats were, and how fresh the ice cream cone was! You can definitely tell that they are made to order.
Taiyaki NYC also allows their customers to make their own taiyaki. You get to pick whatever soft serve ice cream that you would like, as well as toppings and/or fillings!
In fact, Sabrina made her own. Take a look!
Pictured above is a chocolate and vanilla taiyaki filled with a custard filling. It was delicious!
HUGE thank you to Jimmy and the team at Taiyaki NYC. We had such a fun time exploring the surrounding area and enjoying the yummy fish cones!
If you foodies are ever in the NYC area, and in Little Italy and Chinatown, PLEASE make the trip to go check out Taiyaki NYC. It is SO worth the wait, and the cones make the perfect Insta. Trust us.
