Los Angeles can get really warm in the summer. This is no shock to anyone who has ever been in that situation. To deal with the overwhelming sun beating down on the City of Angels, many people find themselves running to the nearest ice cream parlor. This is nothing new. However, the ice cream scene in Los Angeles has steadily been increasing to provide customers with unique and interesting new ways the enjoy ice cream.
Considered one of the best spots to get ice cream, Wanderlust Creamery is an excellent example of an artisanal ice cream shop. The shop is located in Tarzan, and it was built on the site where a Cold Stone once stood. Wanderlust Creamery offers a wide variety of interesting flavors. For example, they have Thai Iced Tea, Vietnamese Coffee, Abuelita Malted Crunch, and Sticky Rice with Mango.
If you find yourself on vacation in Los Angeles and the weather is warm enough, then it would be worth taking a trip to get yourself to the Wanderlust Creamery. In addition to making their own custom flavors of ice cream, the shop makes its own flavored cones and macaroons in such flavors as green tea, honey lavender and earl grey blueberry.
The founders of the shop are Adrienne Borlongan and Jon-Patrick Lopez. Adrienne is essentially the chef out of the two. He comes up with everything from the flavors to the crafting process. Borlongan is the granddaughter of a flavor chemist, and this likely led to her developing the same style of palate and understanding of flavor theory that allowed her to successfully transition from mixology to ice cream. Lopez was originally an attorney who worked at a prominent LA litigation firm. However, he decided to drop that and follow his passions. He is now an entrepreneur who invests himself into developing unique restaurants.
