OMF(ucking)G ... Horchata Soft Serve

Did you know you can find horchata soft service ice cream in LA?

Well, you do now.

Four, Etc. in Koreatown (in a strip mall on the NW Corner of 3rd/New Hampshire) makes horchata ice cream, as well as other flavors, including a pretty good bite on Milk Bar's "milk and cereal".

But don't go today. Ice cream machine broken ... Went hoping to get my second dose in a week's time, and utter face-plant.

3525 West 3rd (Koreatown)

    1. Okay, so was this a Mr. Boba? That's what pops up when I put in that address...

      The ice cream sounds awesome!

        Same strip mall.

        Here's the Facebook link (which I hate adding, btw, but just for you).

          Thanks Ipsedixit!

          I didn't know that facebook links caused you pain but I'm grateful for your help and want you to know that your suffering was not in vain - because that brunch also looks amazing.

          Must check this place out!

      2. The horchata hard serve (is that a thing?) at Fosselman's in Alhambra is fantastic but soft serve sounds even better. I'll have to give it a try.

        Thanks for the rec!

        1. They claim to have invented this at Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC. Do you think that's true, or was it already a thing?

            Based on zero evidence, I'm gonna call bullshit.

            1. re: JeMange

              One thing we can all agree on, the horchata soft serve was being served @ momofuku as early as 2009.


          2. wasn't this a flavor awhile back at Yogurtland? Or was it dulce de leche?
