Best chocolate milkshake near Sherman Oaks?
The only request my husband has for his birthday is that I find him an insanely rich chocolate milkshake while we are on vacation in a couple of weeks. We will be visiting my mom in Sherman Oaks, and while I know I could make him one, he wants to go out with our kids for a special treat. Any suggestions? We are also going to be by LAX that afternoon, and going towards Malibu that evening, so we could drive in any of those directions.
Right near LAX is Pann's an original 1950's diner (“Googie” style architecture allows both Angelinos and travelers an original fifty's experience) and they have great rich milkshakes and Patty Melts.
Also in the Santa Monica and Brentwood (2 locations) I recommended Sweet Rose Creamery (they make their own wonderful ice-cream and original flavors).
In Malibu try Grom, Milkshakes made with real Italian gelato.
Welcome to LA
another good source for milkshakes made with gelato that is located near LAX (between LAX and malibu) is:
4724 lincoln blvd
marina del rey ca 90292
keep in mind, that if what you mean by "rich" is "fatty," probably gelato won't do the trick since gelato is made using milk rather than high fat content cream.
that said, if what you mean by "rich" means incredible, intense, chocolate flavor from using a lot of high quality cocoa, you will do very well by getting a shake made with the chocolate sorbetto at the Gelato Lounge.
be sure to call before you go to make sure they are serving the chocolate sorbetto that day as they rotate their flavors.
Happy B-day to your hubby. During your stay in So Cal might I suggest picking up a glass bottle of Broguiere's Farm Fresh Dairy's chocolate milk. It is insanely rich good stuff.
It is available in most supermarkets.
(Broguiere's holiday eggnog should be arriving soon!)
