I still don't know if I love or hate the wasabi ice cream at Sundaes & Cones in the East Village. My usual routine: sample the wasabi, sample the corn, and get the black sesame. But last week, instead of sampling my usual and ordering black sesame, I decided to break out of the routine with a cup of wasabi. The first dozen licks were intriguing, my mind calculating whether I should file this frozen treat under "dessert "or a different category (I reasoned that if I didn't file it under dessert, I could potentially have another cone). But on the thirteenth lick, I felt tired of the nasal cleansing flavor. Who really wants a cone-ful of frozen wasabi cream? If only they would do half-scoop—now that would be awesome.
