On the last day of Ramadan I found myself doing a jiu jitsu seminar in LA. My wife patiently waited for me to finish and we went on a food scavenger hunt. While our dinner was good, our dessert ended up being even better. We came across this Persian ice cream shop in Westwood called Saffron And Rose. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m super crazy for ice cream. I really love tasting unusual flavors (except spicy ice cream wtf) so Persian or Indian ice cream is a favorite of mine.
We went through the line and anticipating what we were thinking the people working here bombarded us with sample spoons so we could try all the flavors. Even then it was a struggle choosing but I ended up going with watermelon and cucumber.
This isn’t crappy artificial flavoring ice cream. This is watermelon with frozen chunks of watermelon in there. So hard to find ice cream like this. It was so refreshing and was matched perfectly with the cucumber. We ended up taking a couple of pints home. It sucks I don’t make it out to Westwood more often..
