Before you get flustered on all the different flavor choices, there is something that you should know about this ice cream that really makes it special. THEY ARE ALL MADE IN HAWAII! Hammond's happens to be the only ice cream that received the Hawaii Seal of Quality. This means that at least 50% of their ingredients used are from the Island itself. What a lovely surprise! Because of that, their ice cream is super premium (18% butterfat with low air infused in the mixing process, which gives it that rich and dense quality). Some of the local ingredients they use are Kona Coffee beans, fruits, nuts and dairy. How about I stop talking about all this, and let's talk about my experience...
This give restaurants a chance for you to sample some of the goodies that they have in their restaurants and this begins my food adventure that night.
I know what you're thinking...this place is 420 friendly or they use bud in their food?!
Well, that's not what you should be thinking. You will soon find out.
This place was brought to you by the makers of Kogi Truck. Yes! Roy Choi! Ever since Thrillist posted it, I had to check it out.
If you know what POT is, I'm talking about the main restaurant. [skip to next paragraph] If not, let me give you the run down. There are 3 places at the Line Hotel that have POT in it: The cafe, the bar and the restaurant out in the back of them both. I'm talking about that restaurant.
Once you enter the hotel, you will see the cafe on your right and the bar on the left with hella tables everywhere. On the right of the bar, if you walk all the way to the back, you will see green neon lights that spell..you guessed it! POT! And you follow that small ass hallway and boom! You're there!
When we first went there, around 8. We couldn't even get in, but we were smart the 2nd time. Then, again.. the first time was when it just opened so..makes sense. Back to the point..I suggest going early if you're trying to avoid people. Haha.
Welcome to MILK.
I'm pretty sure a lot of you have heard of MILK or tried it yourself, but this is a dessert filled place that I wanted to blog, especially that I went there recently again for the bajiaskdfo;ajsidfma time. It's a small place, so if you see a line outside of the door on a random Tuesday night... -____- ....then, you should think it's normal. It was all the rage back then and still is.
When you go inside, you have already pre-made ice cream batches on the left hand side as well as some baked goods. As you look up, you got your menu and they don't have just desserts. Lol. just desserts! They also have sandwiches, salads, and surprisingly entrees, but I haven;t tried any of it personally. I think it would be a waste because it's a dessert place really! Haha. On your right, there will be a few tables, so I usually just take mine to go, or to eat in the car.
For desserts, they have their classics which is a bunch of sundaes, ice cream sandwiches (macaron), ice cream bars, and drumsticks. They have a bunch of awesome flavors there, but when we went recently, we got the Red Velvet and Thai Tea flavored ice cream macaron sandwiches. [Picture below] Along with that, they got dem shakes, floats, and malts for dessert drinks. If none of their choices touch your fancy, why don't you customize your own drink! I have...and it is awesome. With the help of Jade, we called it, "Sex It Up, VELVET!" It's not on the menu, so if you wanna know what's in it, comment below or message me and I can tell you the ingredients. :)
Welcome to Lappert's! This very deliciously, sexy ice cream place is located out in Poway, CA, also within the San Diego County. If you have no idea where it is in the plaza, you will see this round sign hanging from the ceiling.
This ice cream place is pretty awesome. Apparently, they don't always have the same flavor on the daily. When we went, there were 32 flavors that were available, not including the famous Dole Whip of Disneyland. Lappert's Ice Cream currently have 119 different flavors around the world, so there must be a flavor for you, for anyone, and for everyone.
Being new to the place, I had to sample one of the flavors that most stood out there, and for me, that was the Guava Cheesecake. I already like Guava and Cheesecake separately, so why not together? Before you know it...my mouth starts to water....drools fall down to the ground...and I crave more! But i didn't ;p I kept sampling more flavors, but I don't recall the names. (Sorry guys!)
At the end of the decision-making process, I had to choose one ice cream/whip. The fact that I added whip, you should already have an idea of what that was... the picture below shows it all.
BOOOM! That Dole Whip. It literally reminds me and tastes just like the one at D-Land. It was so good. For you San Diegans who can't reach all the way out to Disneyland (or just super lazy, like myself), to satisfy the craving for ice cream/whip, definitely come to Lappert's Ice Cream, where you will enjoy the cream in yo' mouth.
