    10. Dirty Ice Cream– Ok, first off. It’s not dirty, I believe the term was coined due to the fact that back in the day. The local vendors would make the ice cream in their outdoor kitchens which we call dirty kitchen hence the name dirty ice cream. We also call it “Sorbetes” but its mostly known for the other name. Beside’s the controversial name. This ice cream is my favorite. You can eat it with the burger bun. Yes! In a burger bun! Or the typical boring cone. Enjoy.
