I’d have to say my favorite part of my weekend in New York City was visiting Lula’s Sweet Apothecary. I was in absolute heaven! The shop is tiny but the selections are vast. It took me forever to decide what I wanted. I had been craving a vanilla malted lately – thinking back on going to Steiner’s Pharmacy in Grand Haven, MI when I was little where I’d get a grilled cheese and vanilla malted. mmmm, sounds so good – I wish I could create a vegan version now – but I need to find where to buy vegan malt powder! Anyway, I was so so excited to find Lula’s has malt powder! But they also have hot fudge brownie sundaes! ugh, the decision was rough! I finally realized I could have a bit of both worlds….I ordered the brownie sundae…it was a warm brownie which I topped with a scoop of mint chip and a scoop of cookies and cream, then added hot fudge, malt powder, whipped cream and a cherry. It was delightful! I can’t even tell you how happy I was to enjoy such a magnificent treat! My sister had a cup of the mint chip and as a non-vegan said it was by far the best ice cream she’d ever had! So it just wasn’t me gushing over it!
I can’t emphasize enough – if you’re ever in NYC you NEED to make it over to Lula’s – it’s well worth the trek and it’s in a super cute neighborhood so do some exploring while you’re there.Lula’s Sweet Apothecary 516 E 6th Street New York, NY 10009 Sunday 3-10pm Monday CLOSED Tuesday – Wednesday 3-10pm Thursday – Friday – Saturday 3-11:30pm
