Mateo’s Ice Cream & Fruit Bars is a techni-color orgy of excitement, a wholly legal acid trip that will have your head doing Wonka sized mental backflips of joy as you struggle to make your selection.
This dessert shop in a random Culver/Palms strip mall you nor The Monster ever pays attention to (unless you are THE fan of Thai Klong Dong or randomly frequent this FoamMart) is all sorts of awesome wrapped up in fantastic with a huge bow of get on over to it now.
As the name suggests, you’ll find ice cream and homemade fruit bars the likes if which Baskin-Robbins only dreams of. You’ll be assaulted by the sensation that you should just move in until you sample everything.
Sadly, The Monster only has room and cash for a mango with chili fruit bar but it is all sorts of yum and only means he’ll have to be back tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow to try out other flavored paletas.
Maybe he’ll see you there.
Why go? Who can resist?
