      i live on the westside--so anywhere west of, well, westwood is easy for me to get to...

      1. re: hippodeir

        YokuYoku on the corner of Palms and Sepulveda has good gelato and frozen yogurt. The gelato isn't as sweet as some of the others but it is rich. There's a Baskin Robbins in the Von's shopping center on the corner of Sepulveda and National and, if you're in the mood to travel a bit and like the exotic, there's Mashti Malone's at 1525 La Brea: it's owned by Persian brothers and has out-of-the-ordinary flavors.

        1. re: thericequeen

          I agree with thericequeen above about Mashti Malone' eating experience. But if your craving is itching and needs a quick fix, I would head to The Rose Market at 1922 Westwood Boulevard for some interesting Persian flavors.

          If it is frozen yogurt that you like, I am a fan of the Bigg Chill on the Westside.

          1. re: liu

            Third Mashti's.

            Frankly, my favorite for the little kid in me is at Rite-Aid.

            Fro yo I like Yogurt Factory on SM Blvd.

            Other good ice cream places...
            Delicieuse in Redondo Beach, Dr. Bobs, MILK, Scoops, Glacier Ice Cream and Gelato

              1. re: miffy

                Dr. Bob's Ice Cream you can find in Claremont stores

                1. re: miffy

                  Dr. Bobs is available at Vicente Foods in Brentwood.

                  1. re: maudies5

                    Also available at Bay Cities in Santa Monica and most Bristol Farms.

        1. Rose Market on Westwood in West LA serves Persian ice cream flavors. With the weather warming up and the summer fruits coming down the pipe, they should be in full swing.

          1922 Westwood Blvd

            Hey, we're having the same cravings...Check out my post just above yours! Ha-Ha!!!
            I love the Rose Market or Mashti's, and I'll look for you there!

            1. re: liu

              Both places jam... the OP is trying to stay in the Westside... I just ate my last bit of Mashti's ginger rosewater ice cream with some Harry's strawbs a couple of weekends ago... :(

              1. re: bulavinaka

                "...a couple of weekends ago..." What's taking you so long to replenish?

                1. re: liu

                  My belt is getting too short... :0

            2. re: bulavinaka

              And be prepared - " full swing..." means a big crowd on hot weekend evenings!

            3. Glacier is finally open at 1605 N Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach! Worth the trip! Bring a cooler and an ice block with you, you're gonna wanna bring some pint-fulls home!
