Christina's Homemade Ice Cream
Christina's Homemade Ice Cream in Inman Square is an unassuming Cambridge neighborhood shop, but the flavors are anything but modest. Open since 1983.
WHAT TO GET: Burnt Sugar and Gina's Mocha Explosion (chocolate and coffee ice cream with chocolate chips and crushed Oreos) are the most popular. Seasonal Fresh Rose which really does taste like flowers Jalapeno, Ancho Chile, and Strawberry Cheddar are among the more radical.
WHEN TO GO: From May to September, the shop is open from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and to 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. In cooler months, it closes a half-hour earlier, but this ice cream would sell in a blizzard.
