Hot for ice cream

Cool exotic ice cream saffron rose pedal! Cardamom is what my daughter had. I had the 3 scoop faloosha with weird noodle and chia seeds. It was great to cool off hot, humid 96 degree weather my 2nd daughter and I shared. We came out to taste this delicasey all the way from San Pedro.

This famous place is a great venue to try flavors not available elsewhere, such as cardamom ice cream.

We tried 3-4 authentic typically Indian flavored icecream which you will not find it anywhere else. They were simply awesome. Would love to go there again.

Flavors did not appear real and was too creamy for me. Vada Pao was great, loved the spices. Their chutney sandwich is also way overrated. Will only return to this place for their vada pao,... More

Good Indian cuisine is much easier to find in the L.A. area than it was a few years back, but for the real thing, a trip to "Little India" (off Pioneer Blvd. in Artesia) can't be beat.
