LA in a Scoop

When I opened my gelateria in 2014, many early customers assumed I was Italian. While I am an immigrant, I’m not Italian - I just love gelato. And while I certainly borrow from the rich Italian gelato tradition, my gelateria is an Angeleno through and through.

My adopted city directly inspired the flavors that some might say have become Gelateria Uli’s signatures. And I want to invite you to taste all of them!

In the month of May, you can come to either of our locations - DTLA (541 S. Spring St, Suite 104, 90013) or West Third St. (8044 W. 3rd St, 90048) - and order the ‘LA in a scoop’ in-store (no prior ticket purchase is necessary). We’re lining up eight of our favorite, L.A.-inspired flavors for you to enjoy in one go.

The flavors are:

Poblano, made by steeping hot, roasted poblano chilis in a sweet milk base

Coconut Lemongrass sorbet, inspired by Thai soup Tom kha from Jitlada in L.A.’s Thai-town. (Vegan)

Horchata, an ode to everyone's favorite Mexican drink

Jamaica Agua Fresca with Mint sorbet, another taqueria inspired flavor, this time it’s water-based with fresh mint (Vegan)

Saffron, an ode to L.A.’s Persian community, where the world’s most expensive spice is treasured

Black Sesame, inspired by black sesame buns from Chinese / Taiwanese restaurants in San Gabriel Valley

Ube, inspired by ube jam filled pastries in LA’s Historic Filipinotown

California Pistachio, Instead of using one of the many available Pistachio pastes produced by Italian ingredient makers, we source our pistachios from California’s oldest pistachio farm

Stop by the shop this month, and come on a journey of L.A. with us. Do you have an idea of a distinctly Los Angeles flavor that we should make? Let us know here, and if we make it, we'll give you a free pint. Be sure to tell us the story about why your flavor is inspired by Los Angeles.

    Avocado toast. An avocado/condensed milk gelatto with crumbled tiny bits of crunchy rustic bread pieces. It’s nice how you can spot avocado toast in menus of restaurants and cafés all over the city, and know that each of them have their own unique take on the dish. I have been in LA for only about 5 years, and already have tried more distinct flavors than ever before in my life. It is heartwarming to see such a wide array of cultures converge to create it’s own fresh and unique thing.
