THANKS YOU MINITIME FOR TELLING US ABOUT THIS PLACEFlag review
You know how travel websites always give you the same attractions over and over again, no one has anything special, things that only local know about. Well, Minitime is different. I was skeptical at the beginning about this site, thought another one of those click through to all the places I can get everywhere else. Boy was I wrong. We lived in NY for 7 years and thought there is nothing we don't know. When it came to booking the trip I thought I'll give it a try. What a pleasure and pleasant surprise it was. It showed me kid friendly hotels I never knew about and this great attraction that most of my NY friends never been to. I came out as the hero visiting from LA and introducing the new yorkers to a new cool and fun activity. Could not have done it without Minitime. It is Minitime for me from now on, no need to look anywhere else.

Well, who wouldn't try ice cream from the very first Chinatwon ice cream factory. The place was pretty packed and happening. My daughter is still young and the only two flavors she knows for ice cream is Chocolate and Strawberry. I ordered a strawberry sugar cone to try with her. It was delicious. Very creamy and a blast of cool strawberry taste. My friend ordered black seaseme flavor ice cream. I had a tiny spoonful and it reminded me of black seaseme jin dui from Chinese New Year. It hit the taste buds. If you every venture to Chinatown, look for...
I have been a customer of CICF for the past few years now and everytime I have ordered a new flavor I have never been disappointed. A few of my favorites are Taro/Ube, Red Bean, Lychee and Almond Cookie, which I can't get enough of and all are made in house. Lines can be...
Chinatown Ice Cream Factory is the place to be! I can not express how much I love their ice cream! The only ice cream I eat from here is the coconut ice cream. It taste PRECISELY like coconut and it has some shavings in it! This place is amazing! It brings the inner messy child in me to come out and mess up face wit...
