A recent Yelp posting stated, “Creamistry has the best liquid nitrogen ice cream in Los Angeles.”
“I am excited to introduce our handcrafted creations to the Alhambra community,” said owner Jason Xu. “Not only is this unique and delicious, but also we are proud to offer this customized creamy treat with over 70 topping options. I know that all residents of Alhambra will be delighted by this.”
Alhambra’s Creamistry celebrated its Grand Opening on Feb. 10 at which long lines of early arrivals, hoping for free T-shirts for the first 200 customers, and long lines of later arrivals, eager to receive free ice cream in late afternoon, patiently awaited their entry to the store. And for customers entering a photo contest, with photos of the Grand Opening, the hope was for free ice cream for a year.
The Grand Opening had been preceded by a soft opening at which customers heard the Creamistry story and were treated royally by a responsive, helpful staff bearing the title “Creamologists.” That service, along with the fresh ingredients, the multiple choices, and that shot of nitrogen, has developed a steady corps of repeat customers.
Customers can opt for a selection of special creations — a mixture of sauces and toppings on layers of fresh frozen ice cream — featuring milk coffee ice cream, mint ice cream, vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate ice cream, Cap’n Crunch ice cream, or one can build a creation.
Creamistry is open from noon to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and noon to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. There is plenty of free parking.
