Miami Rice Pudding – Doomed

3/20/2011 R.I.P.:

Miami Rice Pudding doesn’t last in Hoboken

Less than a year and a half after they opening – Miami Rice Pudding is doomed, and the storefront at 103 Garden Street is now for rent.

I guess even green St. Patrick’s Rice Pudding wasn’t enough for them to stay afloat.

Miami Rice – how is it?

Haven’t updated the Miami Rice Pudding entry in six months, so I figured I’d ask the community how you like the new treat shop downtown. I was downtown at 1st and Garden last week, and stopped in for an iced coffee (not bad) – but still haven’t tried their other products. Are they going to survive in Hoboken?

Have you been yet?

The latest sweet shop Miami Rice at 103 Garden Street opened a week and a half ago.

Have you swung by yet? Tasted their offerings? If so – please share your thoughts!

10/7/2009 Update:

Sweet shop set to open in 10 days…

At “press time” (haha press time is 24 hours a day for me!) – the new “Rice Pudding and more” shop Miami Rice (103 Garden) is expected to open their doors on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17TH!

And from 11am-1pm on that day get a free cup of “Seattle’s Best Coffee” (why only two hours – why not all day? C’mon folks! A limited two-hour “most people are hungover” grand opening giveaway is a bit weak, IMO – please consider changing to all day… you know I’m right!)

Regardless – good luck with everything Miami!

Not just rice pudding!

Using a clever 1980’s TV reference – a new store is slated to replace the old Type Works shop at 103 Garden Street: Miami Rice Pudding.

With other locations in NJ and Arizona – The Miami Rice Pudding Company offers many other products (besides the puddings) that seem to be quite popular with today’s Hoboken residents – such as: Gelato, Smoothies, Frozen Yogurt, soft serve and scooped ice creams. Yowie! Sounds like it might have a winning formula!

Too bad. We live nearby and really liked this place. It was a great place to go for desert on a warm night. I’ll miss it.

I heard through the grapevine that they are looking for someone to take over their lease. If true, they made it one year more than I thought they would. At least they took that “party platter” picture down from the exterior wall. It looked like someone puked into a 5-compartment bowl and I was revolted every time I walked past there.

There is a grain of truth in that last post.
