Article in this morning's LA Times grabbed our attention--a real New Orleans snoball stand at 8714 Santa Fe Avenue in South Gate? Can this be true?
My wife (a New Orleans native) and I are snoball fanatics, and the famed Hansen's stand on Tchoupitoulas St. actually played an indirect role in our getting together (story for another time, and unfortunately Hansen's is never open when we are back in the Big Easy). We have long bemoaned the lack of the real thing out here in the Wild West--Hawaiian shaved ice doesn't come close, and while we have learned to love Taiwanese and Thai slushes, we still yearn for the taste of a true nectar cream snoball with condensed milk . . . (or cream of cream, which is impossible to explain but wonderful beyond words)
So has anyone been to this place in South Gate? Or know of other true snoball stands around here that have escaped our attention? Thanks!
