Some great buds o mine recommended hitting up The Lemon Ice King of Corona after grabbing a bite at Nick’s Pizza in neighboring Forest Hills, Queens.
They were so right. I’ve tasted ices before (Miko’s in Chi-town) but Ice King takes it to another level.
Like most ice spots, its basically a shack with counter service. The King features more flavors than anyone I’ve come across before – and they’re unique ones at that.
I ordered the watermelon per a recommendation…plus its one of my favorite fruit flavors. My grandparents opted for traditional lemon while my mom enjoyed a medium mango ice.
All three were outstanding. The flavor was incredibly pronounced – right in your face. The texture is just right too.
Not too icy and dare I say a touch creamy? It was soft and easy to eat. A perfect refreshing snack after a filling pizza pie lunch.
I’m hungry. Lets eat!
