Faludeh and Persian Ice Cream
Price: $5.00 each or $6.50 for both
Size: They arrived in a tall tulip-ed edge sundae cup with the Faludeh on the bottom and two generous scoops of ice cream on top garnished with lemon wedges. This was definitely plentiful enough for two.
Description:Faludeh was comprised of rice noodles in a sweet slush, flavored with lemon and rose water. Persian Ice cream was a blend of vanilla, pistachio nuts, saffron and rose water.
Faludeh: The faludeh was indeed "slushy", with the chopped rice noodles resembling coconut suspended in a very sweet and strong rose water flavored "broth".
Ice Cream: The ice cream was very creamy, very smooth and very sweet with a strong rose water flavor which over powered any pistachio or saffron flavor
Notes: Left a wonderful even and satiny aftertaste and would be perfect for one of our steamy summer days. For all it's sweetness it was surprisingly refreshing and I think if I had actually used a spritz of the lemon over it rather than merely letting it look pretty it would have tempered the sweetness. I could enjoy the ice cream by itself but the Faludeh definitely needed to be paired with the ice cream as it lacked enough substance to stand on it's own for my taste.
Overall: I'd eat it again.
