National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day flavors
Though the Chinese New Year isn't until Tuesday, stop by over the weekend for flavors including Black Sesame, Ginger Candy, Chinese Five Spice, Fortune Cookies 'n' Cream, and Don Tot, mixed with traditional Chinese egg custard made by Fireman Derek's.
As for the Super Bowl, Dasher & Crank will serve the L.A. Ram Raisin, which includes Jamaican rum-soaked raisins in a rum custard, and the G.O.A.T. (Tom Brady), a goat milk-based cream with honey, walnuts, and cherries.
Levine's holiday flavors will be available only through the weekend unless they sell out sooner. Once the batches run out, they're gone for good or until next year. The shop will open at 9 a.m. instead of 11:30 a.m. on Saturday for National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.
Otherwise, swing by for a few of the shop's classics, such as Your Basic Vanilla, the Chocolate Crank, and Chicken and Waffles, which mixes chunks of chicken and waffle from nearby Kush. Prices start at $5.
