If you live in LA, and you have not been to MILK on beverly boulevard, you need to GO immediately.
It's one of my fav. places in the city. It has this wonderful, yet modern, true ice cream parlor feeling to it. And there are so many options of deliciousness that you can go back time and time again and try something different every time.
You can have something traditional like a few scoops of housemade ice cream. Or maybe you're in the mood for a homemade drumstick. No? Ok, then you must try the macaroon ice cream sandwich. I'm not kidding that actually exists. In fact, scratch everything else and just get that.
GO to MILK, it does a body good.
