Somi Somi Bringing Some Cheer To Downtown Santa Monica…

Back in October of last year, I told you about the disappearance of Pinkberry from 1456 Third Street Promenade in Downtown Santa Monica.  Wasting no time whatsoever, expanding chain Somi Somi has opened in the space and is now serving their signature brand of “Korean-inspired” soft service ice cream.  And, at the time of this writing, while other places have currently closed (or are offering take away), they are still open, giving us all a little needed cheer right now.

Somi Somi Bringing Ah-Boong And Taiyaki To Sawtelle…

The recent closure of Blockheads Shavery left a hole in the busy shopping center on the corner of Sawtelle and Mississippi in West LA, the same one that houses superstar Tsujita.  But that’s about to change…  Window covering is promising that Somi Somi will soon be arriving to the space at 11311 Mississippi Ave.  Somi Somi apparently is known for ah-boong (a fish-shaped bun filled with various sweet fillings, “Korean-inspired” soft service ice cream, and toppings), and taiyaki (Japanese pancake filled with various sweet and savory fillings).  With locations throughout SoCal and one in Texas, their website is promising a massive expansion soon.  No word on an opening date…
