Saffron and Rose

July 11, 2015
The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version: 
Orgasmic.
Amazingly creamy and super unique flavors… love it!
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:This family owned ice cream spot is the one I frequent because it’s Persian and they have GREAT saffron ice cream. Remember, I’m half Persian so it’s practically my duty to eat Persian ice cream right?!? There’s nothing special about the location, but there doesn’t need to be… they’ve got amazing ice cream.

What I ate:

  • Saffron ice cream
  • Cucumber ice cream

With flavors like lavender, pistachio, jasmine and rose, it’s hard to decide, but I ALWAYS go for the saffron ice cream. This is a traditional ice cream that has bits of pistachio in it. It’s very creamy so it’s a bit heavier, but it never disappoints! Trust me we get tubs of it to bring home – it’s our duty remember, we’re Persian (haha dont’ you love when things work so well as excuses). This time I decided to get the cucumber ice cream and I fell in love, this is my new summertime ice cream. On a hot day this is heaven! It’s so refreshing and light and it literally tastes like a cucumber. It has real cucumber bits and it’s just orgasmic. Need I say more? What are you still doing reading this?!? GO… NOW!If you want another to try another Persian traditional ice cream, order faloodeh (it’s the top one in the picture). It’s thin noodles made from corn starch mixed into a syrup made of rose water and sugar. If you like rose I think you’ll really enjoy this!
