Salt & Straw is home to the best ice cream in LA and has the lines out the door to prove it. It moves pretty quickly though, even with your friend asking to sample every flavor before she makes a decision. The specials board can get a bit weird (edible bugs for Halloween, buttered mashed potato for Thanksgiving), but is always worth investigating. Even if you do end up always going back to the salted, malted, chocolate chip cookie dough. You can’t be on Abbot Kinney and not go here.
