Valley Stream's beloved Itgen's Ice Cream Parlour is cited in this  year's Saveur 100, the annual list of favorites by the national food magazine.

Itgen's, the magazine says, "would not be out of place in Mayberry." The magazine praises the homemade ice cream and whipped cream, toppings and portions, as well as its burgers, breakfasts "and other savory foods ... made from scratch, cooked to order and delicious."

The list is in the January-February issue of Saveur. Itgen's is No. 26, between "green" wines and the "Czech Beer Revolution."

Itgen's, which opened in 1967, is run by Walt Itgen Sr. and his son. It's at 211 Rockaway Ave., Valley Stream; 516-825-7444.

It's always sundae at Itgen's.
