When I was a kid I remember constantly having throat problems. I had all the -itis already, laryngitis, bronchitis, tonsillitis. I recalled that one “Hey Arnold!” episode when Gerald had to have his tonsils removed, and the doctor said he could have all the ice cream he wants. I thought to myself “Maybe if I will have my tonsils removed, I can get as much ice cream I want.” Never had my tonsils removed, but I still always crave for the cold sweet dessert. Ice cream has always been my main comfort food ever since I was a kid. There’s something about it that could instantly make me happy. When I found out that there’s a new ice cream place in town, I just knew I had to go and try it out.
Farmacy, from what I have gathered, is a concept brought by the Wild Flour group. It’s an “ice cream and soda fountain” shop, meaning it’s not all about ice cream and milkshakes, but also sodas, alcohol-infused floats, among others As much as I’d like to say that the place recreates ice cream parlors back in the day, well, I never saw one, too young to have reached that era. But the interiors are really nice. It does have a “[ph]armacy” feel with its vintage medicine cabinet, and signage here and there. Random thought: I wish they devoted some space instead under the “Prescriptions” for their menu. It makes more sense. It’s more in-line with their theme. I think.
