Black Sesame Ice Cream & Olive Oil Cake
I was reading a food blog today and read about black sesame soft serve and olive oil cake. It looked so good, but too bad she was blogging on the east coast.
Where can I find this in Los Angeles? I live in the Sab Gabriel Valley and work in Downtown, but willing to drive if its worth it....
Black sesame ice cream has been available at Scoops in the past. Maybe check with them first to see if they are still making it. A restaurant that is noted for it is Kiriko Sushi on Sawtelle in West LA. So many people were dropping into Kiriko for the ice cream only that they changed their policy and stopped serving that without other food being ordered as well.

You *might* still be able to get black sesame ice cream (Maeda-en brand) at Green Tea Terrace in Westwood. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/390386
Something that gets mentioned all the time on this board and sounds awesome, though that I haven't yet had a chance to try: black sesame cream puffs at Chantilly, in Lomita.

I've actually tried black sesame ice cream at Gyu-Kaku in Pasadena. Its one of my favorite desserts their. It a hint of a coffee type flavor to me. Its pretty good.
