If you grew up in—or have spent significant time around—Philadelphia, you no doubt already know about “water ice” (you probably also pronounce it “WUDDER ICE”). After all, the dairy-free dessert (alert to all vegans) has long been a summertime staple in the city, thanks to its creamy texture, fruity flavors, and shaved ice aesthetic. But for many Angelenos, it’s a fairly unknown commodity. Happy Ice on Melrose is changing that in a big way. The menu has tons of flavors, but if it’s your first time visiting, go for one of the “Favorite Combinations,” and in particular, Rainbow Rocket. It’s a mix of every flavor on the menu, and the perfect introduction into what Happy Ice is all about. It’s also delicious.
