Mashti and Mehdi Shirvani founded Mashti Malone's Ice Cream in 1980. They're both from a small town in Northern Iran called Masshad and this region is where many of their interesting ice cream flavors have originated. The ice cream parlor in this shopping center on La Brea Avenue has garnered so much popularity that the brothers decided to start catering and selling their famous Rosewater Ice Cream by the pint, an Iranian favorite, under the banner of Akbar Mashti Inc. Hollywood celebrities often hire Akbar Mashti Inc. to cater cast parties. This particular shop attracts ice cream lovers from throughout the Los Angeles area who come to get a taste of its popular ice cream, sorbet, pastries and other treats. Seating is available indoors and on the front patio.
