After eating at Raffi's tonight in Glendale, I took a walk up Brand and came across a Mashti Malone's sign. Confused, thinking that Mashti Malones was only on the westside, lo and behold, they've opened a branch in Glendale.
Perhaps it's been opened for a long time but it was new to me and a very pleasant surprise.
The owner was very friendly and gave both my friend and I samples of at least 6 types of icecreams. I ordered a double scoop: pomegranate and the herbal snow - really fresh and refreshing. Not very icecreamy though - more like ice slushes or sorbets. I would get the herbal snow again, which has these dark seeds in it. Will pass on pomegranate in the future because it doesn't have a distinguishable fruit taste.
Friend got mango and black cherry. I snuck a taste and both were quite good and really tasted like their respective fruits. The owner packed me a pint of lavender rosewater to go - like vanilla with subtle hint and aroma of the herb.
I'm so glad they opened an eastside branch!
