The Ice Bar

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!! Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas (or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa) 🙂
And that you’ve been treating yourself to gooood food this holiday season hehe.

If you’re in SoCal and want something to balance out what may have been a good but heavy meal, the Ice Bar could be an option to go to for a light dessert! Here, the popsicles are treated literally like masterpieces: the gel is carefully squeezed to make neat squiggles, while bulky toppings such as blueberries are artfully set down. Itty bitty toppings like herbs are meticulously placed with a tweezer!

Art of Flavors

I was sick all day yesterday in bed with a cold that seemed to get worse as the day went on. But I loaded myself up with ginger and garlic, drank lots of lemon green tea, took a couple advils and vitamins before going to bed, and woke up today feeling A-okay! Despite how cold and sniffly I was yesterday, one thing couldn’t leave my mind: ice cream. My body felt too heavy for me to want to go out to get some, so I made do with some frozen bananas. My ice cream craving reminded me of one of my favorite dessert places: Art of Flavors.

It took me a while to decide what to get because everything was so good, but here is what my friend and I got that day:
