Rose Geranium Ice Cream Sundae
"What's your favorite restaurant in LA?" is a loaded question for me, impossible to answer without factoring in considerations such as type of food, location and price. Answering "what's your favorite ice cream in LA?" on the other hand, is easy: Sweet Rose Creamery.
Located in the Brentwood Country Mart, Sweet Rose Creamery makes small batches of artisanal ice cream with organic, fresh and seasonal ingredients. Overachievers in the best, most delicious way, they even make their cones, toppings and sauces from scratch daily. The cheery, old-fashioned shop is owned by Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan (Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry, Milo and Olive), and its menu of both classic and rotating flavors such as Fresh Mint with Homemade Chocolate Chips and Brown Butter with Lemon Wafers is the brainchild of chef Shiho Yoshikawa.
This week marks Sweet Rose Creamery's third birthday and, to celebrate, they're serving up an epic birthday sundae. The Rose Geranium Ice Cream sundae features generous scoops of their seasonal Rose Geranium ice cream with fresh raspberries and blackberries, swirls of chocolate syrup and raspberry coulis and is topped with fresh whipped cream (whipped to order!), chocolate shavings and edible floral petals ($7.50). After scarfing down one this past weekend, I can attest that, yes, this sundae is as delicious as it is beautiful...but hurry because it's only available until tomorrow, May 9th!
