Twohey's Restaurant | Monterey Park/ Alhambra/ S. Gabriel | American | Restaurant
In its former lifetime as a drive-in hamburger restaurant, Twohey's, at the confluence of Alhambra and San Marino, may not even have rated as a soda fountain, but by the new century's standards it is very good indeed, flipping out exemplary fresh-lime freezes, fizzily perfect ice cream sodas, and shakes so thick that they essentially deny the straw. But Twohey's hot fudge sundae, an adult concoction made with dense whipped cream, Fosselman's artisanal vanilla ice cream and a fudge that practically vibrates with intense chocolate bitterness, is the cherry on its banana split. Twohey's may not be C.C. Brown's - nothing may ever be again - but it serves one hell of a hot fudge sundae.
