I’ve heard so much about ChikaLicious
, I knew it was only a matter of time before I made my way down to this East Village sweetery. The one thing I didn’t know? That I would be diagnosed with Celiac before I had the chance to sink my chompers in one of those amazing looking cupcakes.
Yup, they looked good. Reaaaaalll good. But honestly, who needs cupcakes when you got vanilla custard? That was a joke, but their custard was pretty good. I think the macaroons were GF but I was in an ice cream mood.
My friend got the hazelnut nutella cupcake:
I just had to have a taste of the icing and it was tasty.
While the dessert club was teeny tiny…
…the dessert bar across the street apparently seats 20 (and has you waiting forever for a table).
And if I was you, and by you I mean a normal human that can eat gluten, I would totallyyy be getting this sundae (via seriouseats.com):
Red Velvet Sundae
Pros: Delicious. Seriously, do I need to explain?
Cons: Not a lot of GF options
