Los Alpes Ice Cream Parlor review image

Los Alpes Ice Cream Parlor

Open since 1979, Los Alpes in Huntington Park is a neighborhood institution that serves paletas, fruit bars, milk shakes, ice cream, and the one, the only: mangoneada. It almost looks like a science fair project: huge scoops of mango sorbet are covered in chamoy, lemon, and red-hot chile salt, which runs down the sides like lava on a paper-mache volcano. This gorgeous contrasting sweet and tart flavors are exactly what we want whenever temperatures hit triple digits and standing in front of the fridge with the door ajar isn’t going to cut it.
