Wanderlust’s schtick is ice cream inspired by countries around the world. What does that look like in your cone? Stuff like olive oil with chocolate-dipped baguette (Catalonia), Thai Tea, pretzel and rye crumbs (Iceland), and their signature purple flavor, Ube malted crunch (Philippines). The whole thing could be stupidly precious, but the ice cream itself is great, and the Atwater Village location is no-fuss (aside from line, which is oft the door). They have another location in Tarzana, and judging from the crowds they’re only going to get bigger.
