Sweet News: Scoops Westside is Open
By Javier Cabral/Special to LAist
The sweet suspense is finally over….Scoops Westside is now open!
After a couple of pesky delays, the indie ice cream boutique opened its doors to the Overland Ave. masses last week. And already…it has had to close down early for running out of the uniquely flavored frozen goodness!
The West L.A extension was made possible by Blogger-turned-Proprietor, Matthew Kang, a long time fan of the flagship shop near L.A.C.C. He humbly writes just why exactly he decided to leave his “cushy bank job” to pursue his dreams of owning his own small business in a contemplative post on his popular food blog, Mattatouille.
I got a chance to make the cross-town drive on a nippy Monday night and the place was fairly cracking with a steady flow of friends and family, as well as curious locals. The strip-mall storefront shined bright. Inside, speedy background jazz syncopations kept my head bobbing through the engaging flavor progression beat. The selection is still in phase 1 but he rotates up to 10 flavors through out the day sometimes. Another freezer is in the near future.
