 Right inside the door of the new carry-out is a glass case with a rainbow of frozen treats. They are paletas, thick slabs of fruit and cream in flavors like mango, rose and ube (which is an alluring shade of lavender.) They are nothing like the popsicles and swirly cones offered up by the roaming ice cream trucks of our childhood. These summer treats have a more international reach and we lucky to have them right here in our neighborhood.
