Bite of the Week: Ube Ice Cream Doughnut Sandwich from B Sweet Dessert Bar

Get an up-close look at our editors’ favorite bites from around the city

What: Halo (Pressed Ice Cream Sandwich), as it’s officially billed on the menu. Your choice of ice cream (we went with ube; always go with ube) shoved in the middle of a piping hot glazed donut.

Where: B Sweet Dessert Bar in Sawtelle Japantown.

When: Saturday afternoon immediately following a large meal at Seoul Sausage Co.

The Final Bite: Ice cream cookie sandwiches have always been overrated—their innards spill out the back end and the cookie-buns instantly get rock hard. In a miracle of thermodynamics, the Halo’s donut stays warm and soft while the ice cream stays cold and (relatively) unmelted, giving you just enough time to scarf it down without robbing BSweet of their entire napkin supply.
