Malibuya | Food Adventures

By  | 

The type of friends I have around me are the ones that you can just call up and in a moments notice, you’re on the way to an adventure in Malibu. This is exactly what happened when Jenn a.k.a “fortheloveoficecream” hit me up to go on a mini hike in Malibu.

Before dealing with the LA traffic, we decided to stop by Papa Cristo’s to fill up our empty stomachs.

Can’t have a day full of awesome foods without ending it with gelato!

We stopped by Grom for their 100% natural gelato.

Very interesting setup as they cover all of their gelatos.

A little bite more pricey than regular gelato, but it was rich in flavor. I would definitely come back whenever I’m back in Malibu. That’s it for now, see you on the next food adventure.
