The Meatball Shop for Ice Cream Sandos

The Meatball Shop in the Lower East Side hasn't just made it onto my must-have list of good eats because it's got this great make-your-own meatball meal—I favor the 2 smashed spicy pork meatballs with spicy meat sauce and melty mozzarella cheese sandwiched between a couple soft cushions of brioche bread. But it's on the exclusive short list for the genius mix-and-match dessert menu of homemade cookies and ice cream sandos bringing up the rear.

You can combine 2 chocolate chip, peanut butter, brownie, oatmeal raisin or ginger snap cookies with a mongo scoop of espresso, chocolate, vanilla, mint, caramel or The Meatball Shop's special ice cream of the day.

My choice, chocolate chip and espresso, was hands down the winner.
