Meatballs and Ice Cream Sandwiches!

The newest location of The Meatball Shop opened in Chelsea (9th Ave between 22nd and 23rd) last week and it is a hit!  Since its opening, the restaurant has been packed.  Rightfully so, their meatballs are amazing and everything is so reasonably priced.  One menu item, other than their meatballs, that is also quite famous at the shop is their homemade ice cream sandwiches.  Each day there is a special flavor of cookie and ice cream but the staple flavors include such classics as chocolate chip or snickerdoodle cookies and chocolate or mint ice cream.  This was my first visit at The Meatball Shop so I decided to order chocolate chip cookies with brown sugar ice cream.  The sandwich is a nice size with a good portion of ice cream inside.  My chocolate chips were the perfect crisp to chewy ratio for an ice cream sandwich.  I like them to be strong enough to withhold the ice cream but chewy enough that I don’t break my teeth biting in!  I LOVED the brown sugar ice cream.  It was cold, creamy, with just a hint of sweetness.  I can now see why these ice cream sandwiches are just as popular as the treasured meatballs at The Meatball Shop.  Everyone seems to order one or a couple after their meals and at $5 each, they are a steal!
