Serendipity 3 is probably one of the few things that lives up to their hype. They do have one of best cold desserts. And it was also because of their media exposure, I was extra excited when I got to go there.
We arrived around 10pm, but we had to wait for an hour and a bit before we finally got our table for 4. Yah, this place is busy until they close. I’m not sure if the wait is like this everyday, because I did go there during the Christmas Holidays, when New York is extra packed with tourists.
This place has 2 floors, but it is very tiny. The décors inside is really cute, and I certainly did not expect the gigantic menus. Gigantic, as in physical size, not the number of items, it can literally cover my whole upper body. I ordered what I came for: Frozen hot chocolate. The frozen hot choclolate is really like what it sounds. It’s like hot chocolate but cold. And it is slushy like, very chocolaty, very goood. The size is masive, and it comes with 2 straws. Sharing is caring! Forget about calories counting, this is a must try!
I do agree, this place is kind of a tourist trap, but it was still really worth the 1 hour wait in the freezing December weather.
