Greetings from the grandaddy of all LA ice cream. Established in 1919 (not a typo), Fosselman’s is the definition of a classic, and if you haven’t made the pilgrimage out to Alhambra at least once, you can’t really say you know LA ice cream. Now, just because it’s old, doesn’t mean it’s good. But luckily, Fosselman’s is both. This is the kind of creamy, old-school ice cream you crave when you’re home sick with a bad sore throat and plowing through a season of Law & Order you’ve already watched. The fudge sundae is a must. Warning: cash only.
