Fried Ice Cream in the SGV?

Anyone know where to get the best fried ice cream in Pasadena/Alhambra/Monterey Park?

  1. Don't know if it's the best but it's on the dessert menu at Enrique's Tamales on the corner of Ivy and Colorado in Monrovia (one block east of Myrtle Ave.)

    1. Dunno if it's the best, but if you want the Asian variety, try Hanabi in Temple City. Tempura batter coated.

      9679 Las Tunas
      Temple City
      (626) 309-4301

      1. While not a popular rec on this board, Afloat Sushi in Old Pas (on Colorado Blvd.) also has the tempura battered green tea variety. I shared this with a friend. I thought the coating was a bit too cakey, but it was pretty good.

        I like the deep fried ice cream at El Torito, personally.

        1. kabuki in pasadena has a decent version of fried ice cream on the dessert menu

          1. My favorite is the version at Mijares in Pasadena. Margarita's in Pasadena also does a decent version. I also had a very nice one at Acapulco.
