Lavender Ice Cream--Mashti Malone's

George Jul 4, 2006 02:43 AM

I made my way to Mashti Malone's on LaBrea the other day. They don't always have it--maybe just in summer?--but they had made up an amount of lavender ice cream, and had even pre-packed some pints in the freezer section.

I recommend it!

    I had it two weekends ago. I thought it was delicious. I also really liked the black cherry ice cream. If anyone hasn't been there, I highly recommend it myself. It's a truely unique place that has really creative and novel ice creams.

        Two months ago, my finacee promised to make me a home baked ultrea chocolate chip cookie in a pizza pan mounded with Mashti's ginger rosewater (and possibly a little mango on the side.)

        Next time you go, try a mashti, or one of the yummy banana splits!

          does mashti's have a straight rosewater ice cream without the pistachios? the one at rose market in westwood did and it was dang good; i'd assume mashti's does too but i can't quite recall.

            Yes, they got creamy rosewater, non-dairy rosewater, and rosewater ice.

            Haven't tried the lavender, will have to--my fave remains the pomegranate, when they have it.

            Thanks for the website. I went back tonight, the 4th of July. They still have lavender.
            Bought another pint. Hand-packed this time: seemed better than the one out of the freezer, which was pretty great to begin with. I'm glad all you hounds haven't bumrushed MM's to eat all the lavender, so I can get some more!
            Also picked up a pint of the sour cherry faludeh.
            Homeless guy started yelling at the guys working: "I DIDN'T KNOW YOU MADE SHAKES! SINCE WHEN DO YOU MAKE SHAKES!"
            They make shakes.

                Just checked their website--they now have a location in Glendale!

                  The Glendale location is not nearly as good -- they have issues with the transport, and sometimes issues with the freezers in the shop, and so it ends up being melted and refrozen -- which is no good.

                  I can't recommend the Glendale branch -- it's worth the trip to La Brea for me.

                I've also bought rosewater saffron ice cream (not Mastro's brand) at Bristol Farms. And, I've had rose gelato from Ciao Bella.

                  The new glelato place on Sunset in Silver Lake had a lavender/rose gelato last week that was divine (if Mashti's has run out).
