It’s day three of a heatwave, your AC is busted, and you need multiple freezer pops to cope: head to Viva Oaxaca. The Koreatown shop has over 20 Mexican paleta flavors, plus dozens of ice cream options like coconut, mango with chamoy, and a bright pink concoction called the Oaxaqueño. The signature flavor is a mix of leche quemada and pitaya ice cream, creating a sweet, creamy, and tart scoop with a surprisingly smoky aftertaste that we’re really into.
