This is the real deal: I literally ate my way through their amazing flavors over the course of a week. I’ve lived in the Middle East for more than a decade and can definitely say that Republic of Booza knows exactly what it’s doing - and then some. This is cultural *appreciation;* it’s total devotion to and respect for a desert with such an amazing history.I talked to one of the co-owners who was in the store and he generously explained the origins of each ingredient and the exact composition of each flavor. They don’t cut corners when it comes to their super high-quality raw ingredients and they also keep switching up their menu to include seasonal flavours while maintaining some of the evergreens. I was legit surprised that they’re able to keep their prices within a very reasonable range, also given the shop’s location in the heart of Williamsburg. Let’s just say you get your money’s worth.When I was there in late September, my favourites included: Burnt-Butter Sorbet (with basil & sumac), Saffron Peppercorn (Iranian Saffron accented with a blend of Tellicherry & Peruvian Pink pepper), Red Miso (accented with pumpkin seeds), Vanilla (from Fiji).I recently started following them on Instagram and FB where they keep posting pics of their limited-edition flavours. For Halloween they made a flavor called “Dracula’s Bloody Mess” (white chocolate rocky road of marshmallows, chocolate chunks, and almond with a sour cherry 'blood' swirl) and one called “Choc-o’-Lantern” (Pumpkin-flavored booza laced with ribbons of dark chocolate ganache).

Basically not edible. Cool looking. Gum texture... an internet trend that shouldn’t last. Nice location...

Delicious! Fantastic flavours, not overbearingly sweet that leaves you super thirsty (or with a headache). Looks cool when they stretch it but no gum-like texture, melts almost like normal ice cream but even better with a richer, creamier feel. Excited to come back throughout the seasons for the new flavours. Staff is kind and the place is clean and colourful. Great addition to the neighbourhood and hope they pop up in some restaurants/grocery stores soon =]

I absolutely love this ice cream! It's a lovely little treat, it might not be what everyone is expecting, but if you come in with an open mind it's a very delicious, gooey treat. They have vegan options which is amazing as well. They're super liberal about letting you try flavors, so you know exactly what you're getting into. I find the texture super pleasing and less messy than other ice cream. As an ice cream fanatic, I'd definitely put this on my list of top 10 ice creams to check out. My Turkish friend said they have ice cream like this there as well, so you're getting a bit of a cultural experience! Very unique.

They had interesting flavors but probably an acquired taste. The chocolate flavor tasted so good! Very simple and cute decor

Take me back to Brooklyn…

(Translated by Google) One thing in advance: you should know that here you get ice cream which is made in an old traditional way.Unfortunately, it convinces only partially and unfortunately is out of all proportion to the price(Original)Eines vorab: man sollte wissen, dass man hier Eis bekommt welches auf eine alte traditionelle Art hergestellt wird.Geschmacklich überzeugt es leider nur bedingt und steht leider in keinem Verhältnis zum Preis

I would give 2.5 stars but I could only do 2 or 3 so they got lucky lol. To me the only thing decent was the price but the flavors are not that great and the texture was kinda gross, every time I took a bite it was taking a bite of a banana after a baby try’s to eat it but spits it out. Nice location tho and like I said prices are decent... it’s a cool idea but I wouldn’t go back.

The ice cream is extremely unique! Although tasty, it just wasn’t for me. I prefer the taste of original ice cream compared to this cold marshmallow like desert. My girlfriend was the complete opposite opinion of me.Don’t knock it before you try it!

My experience here was pretty great. Initially, we were a bit intimidated by all the flavors and sizes on the wall. However, a staff member was really really patient and explained all we needed to know. She was also understanding when we asked for many samples. The payment process was simple and the ice cream tasted great. I think that it is truly unique to this area.

First time trying some Lebanese ice cream! That laffy taffy like pull got me all mesmerized from the moment I saw it online. I was in the area and randomly walked by when my eyes caught the stretchy ice cream. My favorite flavor was the salted Oreo which tasted like cookies and cream. Now I love all ice cream but Lebanese ice cream is a ice cream I would have once in a while. The thickness and goop-like texture feels like the entire inside of my body will have remnants of Booza for another month or so. Definitely the most interesting ice cream I have ever had. I'm looking forward to my next encounter with Booza...just after this Booza leaves my body first.

High concept meets low quality: despite the innovative flavors, such as beet and chèvre, the indifferent staff make for an unpleasant experience of having ice-cream here.The ice-cream itself is good, not great. You will be better off at the nearby Van Leeuwen or Davey’s.

Salted Oreo and the pineapple burnt butter sorbet were amazing. Honestly all of the flavors had something to offer, and the stretchy texture was interesting and unexpected. Definitely plan on going back next time we're in NY.

Not what I expected. Went here because I saw a video of it and got really intrigued to try it out. Staff were snobbish as hell. Would barely answered my questions. Ice cream was only average, especially for that kind of price. Won't recommend. Two stars for their innovativeness.

The ice cream was very good. I like it didn’t taste too sweet as most regular ice cream do. To me, the portion served is worth the money you pay.What I didn’t like is that the cups are so small and the ice cream start to fall down if you don’t eat it fast enough.Grab plenty of napkins to clean your hands as you race to eat this delicious ice cream!
