Regular readers may recall my love of longans, a fruit which I first tasted during my trip to Vietnam. On a recent summer night Donny and I sought out Sky Ice, a Thai ice cream shop here in Park Slope. Donny sampled several varieties (including durian) before settling on Thai Iced Tea ice cream, but I zeroed in on the longan sorbet almost immediately. Although the texture was a little crumbly, there was no mistaking the pure and delicious flavor of fresh longans, albeit in sorbet form. Next time I’m gonna go for the mangosteen.
