In March 2019, my brother and I stopped at the new branch of La Tradicional Ice Cream. Two years before we had tried the original across town and felt it was the best of the town's many paleterias. https://www.chowhound.com/post/la-tra...
I loved that they make a 50:50 of two of my favorite flavors...Fresa y Nuez (strawberry and pecan). William had the agua fresca de fresa, but we both agreed the strawberry flavor is not as intense in early spring as later in the season.
Pro tip: Wi-Fi signal from Starbucks next door is strong inside the ice cream shop. And La Tradicional will direct you there for restroom use as well.
