Rice to Riches is a fast food restaurant serving only rice pudding, located in the SoHo neighborhood of NYC. The restaurant is decorated in a unique modern style with bright colors and interesting shapes. The walls are covered with funny phrases and cartoons - threatening slow and fussy customers with extra charges.

The restaurant is similar to an ice cream shop. They offer 21 different flavors of rice pudding and a selection of 12 toppings. The pudding flavors are all on display behind a glass, and you can even ask for a taste of some of the unusual flavors before making your choice.

The restaurant has limited seating space. There is a long round booth with a few tables, and a few additional tables with standing room only.

Although the restaurant received an "A" rating from the health inspector, during our visit, a NYC rat ran across the restaurant floor during broad daylight!

Rice Pudding with Spirit Topping

Rice Pudding - Bring home the Banana Walnut
Spirit Topping - Oatmeal Coconut Crumble
Cost:$7 + $1 for topping

This rice pudding was the small "Solo" size, but the pudding is very rich and I was unable to finish it all. Rice pudding is an unusual treat - it's somewhere between a dessert and a meal. With the banana and oatmeal crumble, I felt it made a reasonable lunch. The banana pudding was not too sweet but had a nice creamy texture. The spirit topping went well with the flavor and added a bit of a crunch.

The rice pudding came in a cute reusable plastic bowl that came with a sturdy spoon and a lid. I made use of the lid to take my leftovers home.
