NYC: No April Fools Joke Here- just rice pudding

About 5 years ago, I stumbled into a quick service specialty dessert restaurant in SoHo that sold only one thing, Rice Pudding!

"Rice to Riches" was and is a great idea.  Impressions from my frequent visits, including this month: it's like walking into a very fancy neighborhood Baskin Robins, only with 31 flavors of Rice Pudding + toppings- the endless choices are as fantastic as the food itself.  The branding/marketing/design/packaging is as good as any concept I have ever seen.

I really like getting the "Sex Drugs and Rocky Road" + "Chocolate Chip Flirt" with a topping of "MISCHIEF" (graham cracker crumbs).  This stuff is Addicting and Fantastic! Also, I have ordered it many times to Texas along with "Understanding Vanilla", which is a good balance with the others.

Happy 5th B'day RtR.
