Ice-Cream Lab, which serves made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream containing all-natural and locally sourced ingredients, is opening its second location in Pasadena Oct. 24. Pasadena locals will now have the chance to get their ice cream made to order with their choice of fresh, never-frozen fruits, pure dairy milk and cream and a blast of liquid nitrogen.
Guests can choose from four traditional flavors and six seasonal specialties that will be made with a custard or yogurt base. Once a flavor is chosen, the “techs” freeze the treat on the spot with an ice cream machine that uses liquid nitrogen.
The store was founded by childhood best friends Joseph Lifschutz and Tommy Ngan. Some of their favorite flavors include Angeles Apple Pie, made with cinnamon, apples and graham crackers; Blue Velvet Cupcake, made with large chunks of blue velvet cupcake and cream cheese icing; and Salt Lick Crunch, with pretzel pieces, caramel and sea salt. Milkshakes are also on the menu.
“Ice Cream Lab is excited to announce our Southern California expansion,” says Lifschutz. “With new stores opening in Old Pasadena, Westlake Village, and Little Tokyo, we will continue to provide the freshest ice cream throughout all of Los Angeles. Stay tuned for more openings.”
The new store, located at 16 S. Fair Oaks Ave., will be open from noon to 11 p.m. Sun.-Wed., noon to midnight Thurs.-Sat. Learn more at www.icecreamlab.com.
