    Have been going to Ghirardelli's for ice cream in Vegas for many years. I know about Serendipity and will give them a try this year. Now that Ghiradell's is gone can any one reccomend another place? I don't like those places that mix up different flavors on some cold stone.

    Thanks

    If you're downtown you've got to try Lappert's, upstairs at the Cal.

    I'll second Lapperts! :licklips:
    If you're serious about your ice cream then this is the place. It's worth the trip Downtown. Period.
    If you go through the hamster-tube from the Cal to MSS you'll find it upstairs.

    I will third Lapperts!

    I have not had it in Vegas, but have had it in other cities. It's a brand from Hawaii (of course it is, it's located at the California, where everything is Hawaiian). Their guava sorbet is amazing.

    You can also try Ice Pan. They're sort of hidden at the back of Harrah's (by Toby Keith's), but their ice cream is different from any you've had before. You choose a dairy (whole milk, 2% milk, or soy), a flavor, and a topping. They pour it all onto a cold block and work it until it becomes ice cream. It's not overly sweet and the flavors are all real. I Know you requested no Cold Stone places, but this is different since the ice cream is made from liquid right in front of you. I get mine with soy since I'm slightly lactose intolerant. My favorite is pistachio soy ice cream with banana. They blend pistachios into soy milk, make it into ice cream, and smash in a banana. I also like their red bean soy ice cream with lychee (I promise this might be the best ice cream flavor you've ever tasted). After a long day, I like their chocolate soy ice cream blended with walnuts, mochi, and a chunk of cheesecake. If it's still pomegranate season, get the pomegranate ice cream. They use the juice from half a pomegranate to make your ice cream. It's sweet, tart, and delicious with berries mixed in. The place is run by a lovely Korean couple and they're so nice that you can't help but love them. I heard they might be moving to Linq once they're done building.

    Here's a youtube video of them making it:

    No, I don't work for Ice Pan, but I do go once or twice a month.

    Oh, and their cones are very reasonable. They're $0.75 and made fresh daily. And they're not the super sweet cones you get from other places like Cold Stone. They have a hint of sweetness and caramelization, but it's more a texture contrast for the ice cream as opposed to something that has its own strong flavor.

    I'm staying downtown, so will try Lapperts out and if I hit Harrahs will definitely hit the Ice Pan.

    The guys and gals who work at the Ice Pan definitely earn their money that's for sure!!
