i'm craving cannolis and wanted to see if anyone might have any tips about where the best ones are in la.... also, do you guys know any places where they might sell the cannoli shells and filling separately so i can fill them at home?
I'm not a cannoli expert by any means; I've only had them a couple of times, so I have few points of reference. Nevertheless, both my wife & I like the ones at Porta Via in Pasadena. They fill the shells to order, so they're not sitting around all day getting soggy; I imagine they might be willing to give you the shell & filling separately.
