It’s nitrogen ice cream.
None of that Thai rolled ice cream fad that’s infected NYC, and has now seeped into LA.
Anyway, nitrogen-made ice cream is Choux Creme’s claim to fame. And for what it’s worth, it’s a pretty darn good product. Basic flavors are all there (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry) as well as green tea matcha. All pretty good based on samples anyway.
But what really sets this place apart are the homemade (or is that housemade?) pastries. From danishes, cookies, to donuts. And, of course, the eponymous pastries are aplenty. Big deal, you say? Yes, big deal, I say. Because you can get those pastries a la mode.
So, if you’re still reading and paying attention, that means you can now have an ice cream sandwich made with (wait for it …) a donut. A nice warm glazed donut, split in half (like a bagel). And stuffed with ice cream of your choice. Mine? Matcha. Good stuff. Very good. Bonus? No more having to get in line for a Costco churro then hustling over to Fosselman’s anymore.
This is a very good thing.
Think about going during our expected winter heat wave next week before they receive a cease-and-desist letter from Big Corporation.
