The Dolly Llama: a Sweet Sensation from LA to NYC

Dolly Llama, one of the most famous dessert shops in Los Angeles, has just landed in New York.

This dessert destination was born out of a quest to present something sweet, new and innovative. When I got the news, I decided to write an article about its Bubble Waffles in my NYC BLOG.

Dolly Llama New York’s main speciality is its Bubble Waffles. These are original Hong Kong desserts, similar to the more traditional ones from Belgium. The Bubble Waffles are perfect to go with toppings and sauces.

The thing I love most about this dessert shop in New York is that all the desserts are freshly made, fresh before your eyes.

The origins of the Hong Style Waffles in New York

Dolly Llama was born from the creative genius of Eric Shomof and Samuel Baroux, two childhood friends who decided to turn their passion for desserts into a successful entrepreneurial project. Dolly is really a Llama on a farm in the south of France. Her friendliness made Dolly be Samuel Baroux’s favorite Llama and inspired him in choosing the name of this Dessert Shop.

If you are in the Lower East Side area, it means you are close to Little Italy. My advice is to explore the area and try one of Little Italy’s Best Cannoli.
