Fanny’s ice cream buffet was everything I wanted, and more. I sort of expected lame flavors, or less-than-stellar quality (perhaps the old cartons) for $5, but they had at least 20 flavors including, but not limited to: dark chocolate, peanut butter, yogurt, mixed berry, strawberry, strawberry yogurt, blueberry, raspberry, green tea, coconut, mango, ginger, caramel, salted caramel, chocolate chili, cookie, soursop, yum rice, banana, and milk chocolate. The buffet occurs on the first Friday of each month, and starts at 6:30pm and ends at 11pm. My recommendation: get there at 6 to get a table (it’s a bit of a mad house). In Vietnam, there is no concept of a line, so you just sort of shout and push your way to the front. Not only was there ice cream, but also a toppings bar (Oreo, whipped cream, and hot fudge included), fresh fruit, wafers, cream puffs, and pancakes. In three words: heaven on earth.
I limited my toppings to fit in more ice cream, and was able to have 18 flavors in this breakdown:
Round 1-green tea, chocolate chili, caramel, peanut butter, dark chocolate with hot fudge, 2 Oreos, and chocolate chips
Round 2- strawberry yogurt, mango, banana, mixed berry, strawberry, raspberry
Round 3-two strawberry yogurts, one yogurt, one banana with fresh fruits
Round 4-three green tea (Hmmm, I wonder which my favorite was)
Granted these scoops added up to one sundae at Friendly’s and I only ate one meal that day, but I am still proud.
