Quick Bite: 1st Colonial Grill

Bicolandia is known for spicy food due to their fondness with sili (chili) that they put in just about any dish you can think of—including ice cream!  1st Colonial Grill claims to be home to the original sili ice cream, and we came to investigate this exotic ice cream.

Food Trip: Bob Marlin
