SoCal’s Mindblowing Milkshakes

By Dustin Clendenen   California isn’t known for its dairy industry, but as the unofficial foodie mecca of the United States, we know how to spruce up classics with delicious twists. Milkshakes are an American staple, but some of these recipes are purely SoCal. Here’s a roundup of the best milkshakes in the region worth coming to the yard for.   Brian’s 24 828 6th Ave., San Diego, 92101 (619) 702-8410 Hailed the restaurant that never sleeps, Brian’s 24 is open 24/7 in the heart of San Diego’s bustling Gaslamp District. This is a “classic” diner, so it’s only appropriate that they serve classic shakes and malts. These gargantuan 32 oz concoctions come in three delicious flavors: vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, with a heaping serving of whipped cream. If that’s not enough to whet your appetite for 1950s nostalgia, they all come with two straws for sharing. Drink up, and maybe you’ll have enough energy for a good ole’ sock-hop!   Burger City Grill 8260 Firestone Blvd., Downey, 90241 (562) 250-3700 2064 Pacific Coast Highway, Lomita, 90717 (424) 250-1240 Good burgers are nothing if they aren’t served with good milkshakes, but Burger City Grill is all about great burgers. Their…

We All Scream for (Unique) Ice Cream

By Maria del Cisne Vital   We all know that summer time is best time for a deliciously sweet serving (or two) of ice cream. The perfect chocolate/vanilla swirl atop a waffle cone is a classic image that we can all appreciate. But sometimes classic is boring, and a spontaneous and daring option is as enticing as ever. SoCal is home to several ice cream shops that serve up wild flavors— Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, chicken and waffles, and avocado are just a few to mention. Forget vanilla, and celebrate Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day the right way at one of these shops:   The Coolhaus Shop  Coolhaus started out as two friends making ice cream sandwiches for fun, and ended up turning into a booming L.A. business. Its storefront in Culver City scoops up classic flavors, but also has some unique ones ready for you to try out. Their Fried Chicken and Waffles flavor features Brown Butter Maple ice cream with maple candied chicken skins and caramelized waffles. If meat and ice cream is too daring for you, settle for their Whiskey Lucky Charms flavor which is infused with Lucky Charms cereal and Jameson whiskey. Among the wacky flavors, there’s…
