I’ve been spending a lot more time in my home borough these days. When I was in the Boerum Hill/Prospect Heights vicinity recently, I finally decided to pay a visit to Ample Hills Creamery. What appeared to be a quick walk on a map ended up much longer thanks to streets that turned in different directions but in the end, I finally got there.
It was a hot afternoon that day and so there was a long line of people waiting to buy their ice cream. When I finally made it to the front of the queue, I quickly browsed the menu and settled for my favorite ice cream flavor, Strawberries & Cream.
Not many places make a good strawberry ice cream that meet my satisfaction but the one at Ample Hills is awesome. One could taste the strawberries in every bite and I think it Ample Hills is now my favorite place to get it if I want locally made ice cream. Barring that, I will still be happy with my second choice, Häagen-Dazs (can’t go wrong with ice cream and lots of frozen strawberry bits blended in).
