Afters Ice Cream is Now Serving Tapatio Flavored Sorbet

This week, on September 15th, The Hundreds and DoorDash will be hosting the Family Style Food Fest, an event that pairs the streetwear community and with lauded restaurants to create a brand new food experience centered around community. However, one of the most appealing options isn’t coming from a streetwear designer, it’s coming from one of the most dependable sauce brands on the market, Tapatio, and Orange County’s own Afters Ice Cream.

The two will be rolling out a special collaboration flavor, made by infusing Tapatio into Afters’ mango sorbet. To give it some extra punch, they’ve added a Tapatio swirl. Then, they drizzle a good amount of Tapatio on top and dust it with a layer of Tajin, the popular Mexican seasoning powder.

While this may seem overwhelming on paper, the flavor combination is surprisingly mellow. The Tapatio doesn’t overpower the mango, it only adds some heat that’s immediately cooled off by the sorbet. The result is a sweet and spicy treat akin to a mangonada. All it needs is the Flautirriko.

If you want to try this late summer treat, but can’t make it to Los Angeles next Sunday, the flavor will be available at all Afters locations for a limited amount of time.

12 Stunning Looks At LA’s Hottest New Poke Joint, TikiFish

It’s no secret that poke’s explosion onto the Los Angeles food scene has already received its due share of attention. What with poke joints seemingly sprouting up in every corner, the trend seems to be at peak levels in the city. So to stand out amongst the multitude of restaurants certainly takes more than just a claim of the freshest fish and best toppings.

Enter TikiFish, a new poke restaurant in Palms borne out of the ambitions of two men not new to success. Ben and Bobby Hundreds, founders of The Hundreds streetwear clothing brand, set out to conquer a different playing field that now involved a culinary sense of what works. At their disposal are fresh poke, ceviche, a host of premium toppings, and a city’s sudden affinity for the trend as their base to build out this new endeavor.

With Ben and Bobby being experts on eye-catching aesthetics, the visuals of the poke bowls being moved at TikiFish along with the distinct artistic flair of the interior decor are nothing short of impressive. Yes, pictures will always paint a thousand and more words, so let’s let social media’s ever vigilant eye speak for itself on TikiFish’s reason for being one of the hottest new restaurants in Los Angeles.
