SALT & STRAW

when we heard that LA was (finally!) getting the portland based raved about ice cream shop, salt and straw, i knew i wanted to send the girls over there to check it out! i heard they seriously lived up to their reputation… (sad i didn’t get to join them!)

“we sampled so many of their delicious flavors, some of our favorites were stumptown coffee, cinnamon apple donuts and surprisingly tomato water and olive oil, which sounds kind of crazy but it was mild and refreshing.”

“they make all of their ice cream in 5 gallon batches and source local ingredients for all of their seasonal flavors. and the flavors actually taste like the description. they don’t add a ton of extra sugar so you can experience the ingredients which was pretty cool.”

“and they are insanely hospitable, we spent quite a bit of time in there and watched them dish out no pressure samples with a smile to lots of hungry onlookers.”

if you’re in LA check ‘em out! their new shop is on larchmont.
