Coconut Ice cream.
where's the best?
so far i think it's mc connell's island coconut.
1. Well, I've still never stopped in at LAX-C Market, north of downtown, to try their take on Thai coconut ice cream. According to very reliable sources, it's supposed to be great. But the coconut ice cream in the freezer at Simpang Asia Market in Palms is darned good too--more like a coconut-milk sherbet, very pure-tasting. (They also have taro and durian, both similar and quite good.)
2. Al Gelato's coconut gelato is an old favorite, probably their best flavor. Intensely rich and coconutty. (I'm sure Kevin knows where it is but for anyone else who might not have had the pleasure, Al Gelato is on Robertson between Wilshire and Olympic in BH.)
I've been enjoying Mateo's paletas lately, and the coconut comes in two different styles; one is creamier. Their smoked milk ice cream (leche quemada) is very good and their tropical flavored sorbets are worth a look.
