One of the yummiest dessert places West of the 405 in the Sawtelle/Japan town is Blockheads! They do a special kind shaved ice with lots of special flavors like black sesame. My favorite is the green tea :). It's absolutely chewy and delicious.
Recently they've started a popsicle trend and the flavors they've created are out of this world. Some of them include triple berry, thai iced tea with oreo crunches on top, green tea with pistachio bits, coffee flavored and more.
They also have panda, pig and blockhead shaped macaroons to-go!
