Chicago’s hidden gems may not be listed on the tour guide. Richard’s Super Premium Ice Cream, the name speaks for itself. One of seven Black-owned ice cream shops. Located in the historic Pullman neighborhood of Chicago.
This hidden gem is the epitome of handmade ice cream. Specialty flavors introduce a ‘Peach Vodka Circoc’ ice cream that serves as a perfectly crafted adult treat and a ‘Banana Pudding’ flavor that is to die for. The list of delight delectables keeps on going, featuring a Fall flavored surprise, ‘Pumpkin Spiced Caramel Popcorn.’
The restaurant truly lives up to its reputation with being rated five stars multiple times; on major sites like Google and Yelp.
Leonard, an everso amazing customer representative, bestowed a round of samples that were very much enticing. So enticing, choosing just one will leave a feeling of a missing piece to a puzzle. The feeling to obsessively indulge is real. With over 20 flavors to choose from, safe to say there is one for every mood.
Given a few details about the company which started in Burnham, Illinois in 1999. The founder of the company, Richard, got the idea of starting an ice cream business in search of a craving that was healthy and craveable.
The price range could be considered a bit pricey, racking $12 for a single pint. However, the probability of eating the entire pint in one sitting is more than likely. Which makes this ‘one of a kind’ delight worth every penny.
As stated the restaurant is a “hidden gem”, literally. The secluded and discreet location could be a near miss when cruising by. The menu also includes food, even full-course soul food dinners, and their very own Popcorn. Not feeling like a sweet treat? No worries, there is something else to eat.
