    Great place for something sweet after a show at Webster Hall. Can't get into Le Bain? that's ok, the Salty Pimp is far more enjoyable. Don't be discouraged by long lines...they move quickly!

    Sample quirky treats like the decadent Salty Pimp, a chocolate-dipped vanilla cone with dulce de leche and sea salt. The shop is small, so get your cones to-go. Read more

    If it's your first time here. Get the Salty Pimp. Vanilla ice cream / caramel & sea salt dipped in chocolate. This should introduce you to how a mix of Sweet & Salty go well together. Awesome Flavors!

    Fun-loving soft serve with creative toppings like the Salty Pimp: vanilla, salt, dulce de leche, and a chocolate dip.

    What starts as traditional ice cream is quickly transformed by adding tons of unique toppings. We recommend the Salty Pimpvanilla ice cream, topped with dulce de leche, sea salt and chocolate dip.

    The American globs (vanilla, pretzel, sea salt, chocolate dip) is amazing!

    This place being down the street is clearly going to be a problem.

    The truck only operates through the fall. Luckily, the new brick-and-mortar shop in the East Village has answered our prayers so we can get our fix way past ice cream season.

    Be careful: the BFICS is located at a unicorn crossing. You're likely to be trampled, with sparkly hoof prints left on your back as a warning to other oblivious customers.

    Ask for a Dirty Blonde. It's the Bea Arthur dipped in chocolate. Don't tell anyone. It's a secret.

    Once you're ready to graduate from the ever so classic "Salty Pimp," try the "Monday Sundae"--I'm a convert.

    Shit gets real here. Get the American Globs.

    When you order the salty pimp, ask for cayenne pepper. Trust me.

    Pretzels at the bottom of my cone? Unreal.

  • Amanda

    Yes, the Salty Pimp is cool and all but you gotta try the Olive Oil/Sea Salt/Fig Sauce combo they recommend!

    Amanda · October 26, 2011

    AMAZING Ice cream with a catchy name. The inside is not very big but it was so nice that day that we walked to the near by park to eat it while watching people walk by. My ♡ Salty Pimp and Bea Arthur.

    Don't be intimidated by the line- it moves super quickly. Also, it's all worth it in the end for a lick of the salty pimp.

    Don't make eye contact while licking your cone LMFAO

  • T.J. S.

    Torn between the awesome Salty Pimp and the intriguing American Globs? Order the off-menu American Gangster, which is an unholy combination of the two. You won't regret it.

    Unique soft serves and shakes. One of our favorites is the Monday Sunday, a chocolate swirl with sea salt and Nutella. Excellent prices for huge portions.

    The Salty Pimp is the best ice cream I've ever had. I had it in Nov and have found a reason to come back to NYC for 2 days to eat it again.

    Get the Salty Pimp. It's the perfect combination of sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy. Plus, it;s just so fun to say.
