Rosemary's Family Creamery - Bakersfield, CA

Rosemary's Family Creamery

2733 F St, Bakersfield, CA 93301 
(661) 395-0555

My David's Tan & White ("Vanilla and Toasted Almond Ice Cream with yummy Marshmallow and our homecooked Caramel sauce with Nuts, Whipped Cream, and a Cherry") was huge and delicious, but my parents helped me eat it. The whipped cream tasted like real cream and was thick. The almond ice cream was delicious and not overwhelmingly almond-y. The homecooked caramel sauce and marshmallow sauce were really good too! So happy with my pick.

You can see my brother's bright green lime Brad's Sherbet Shake ("A refreshing mixture of Sherbet, flavored Syrup and Sparkling Water blended to perfection!"). He finished it quickly and just told me a few minutes ago again that he really liked it.

Pizza Five85 - Moreno Valley, CA

Pizza Five85 - Various Locations in CA & AZ
12510 Day St, Moreno Valley, CA 92553

I haven't tried Pieology yet, but I've been to Pizza Five85 in Moreno Valley twice now and was very happy with both pizzas. It's like a Subway but for pizzas. You just say what you want (type of crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings) and they bake it right there in front of you and then out pops a delicious personalized pizza with fresh ingredients. I love how you can add all kinds of veggies and meat options, including ham, cilantro, basil, chopped or cherry tomatoes, artichoke, mushrooms, olives, diced garlic, feta, etc.). SO GOOD!

* Insider tip from my cousin & friend: Go on a Tuesday and get 2 scoops for the price of 1 or 3 scoops for the price of 2!
* Another tip: Have udon at Sanuki no Sato before or after your ice cream!

Reasons to visit this place: Delicious ice cream, unique flavors, part of your money goes toward charities, they use local ingredients when possible, and it's a family business (bro and sis!).

Cold Brew Coffee, Cinnabacon, & Matcha

Up close on my Cinnabacon. Yum!

Nabeyaki Udon at Sanuki no Sato - Gardena, CA

Apparently this is a favorite restaurant among several Japanese people I know in SoCal. My cousin introduced this place to my brother and me the other day, and it was delicious. Who cares if the weather has been hot lately... It's almost never too hot for good udon or good ramen, and the same thing applies to ice cream in cold weather. Anyway, look at all of the deliciousness in this bowl. You can't really see the udon, chicken, or roots, but every bite was delicious.

The agedashi takoyaki was also delicious. I believe I am a tako (octopus) person now...I never was before. Here was my tako ball. No picture of the complete appetizer. Guess we were all too hungry to take a picture first.

Here's our fried chicken and nasubi (eggplant):
