My visit in July 2019 to La Michoacana Reyes Ice Cream Shop was in the first week of operation. The grand opening special was $2 paletas and $2 ice cream scoops. I enjoyed the owner's energy and hospitality, as well as the quality of his product so much, I returned the next day as my last stop in Oxnard before heading home.
I tasted the chongos, mamey, cafe ice cream flavors and the strawberry de agua sorbet. The mamey was especially excellent but I didn't feel that flavor would pair well with the others I tasted, so wound up with scoops of the strawberry and cafe. On my return visit, I had a strawberry con crema paleta. And enjoyed tasting the samples of aguas frescas.
The specialty is ice cream sandwiches made with conchas sweet bread, as shown in the instagram post. This spot felt very solid to me.
