Mr. Holmes Bakehouse - Los Angeles

About a month ago, I finally got to try Mr. Holmes bakehouse. Since this place closes early, I never had a chance to come. There weren't many pastries when I was there around 1pm. But I got what I wanted, which is match croissant. I personally liked their pastries a lot. Not too sweet, and flaky.

Matcha croissant was good, although I was hoping there are some matcha cream inside.
Delicious rhubarb danish
Donut.. with alcohol. I think whisky was in it but you don't really taste it.

Holy Roly ice cream

Newly opened, and the only place to get rolled ice cream in Koreatown.When I was here, it was around 11:30pm, and they close at 12am. But the place was packed and the time I finally placed my order was 11:52pm. And waiting, waiting, waiting.. and I finally got my order at 12:52am. I didn't think I would have to wait that long, and I didn't think this place gonna be packed at this late, and it was on Wednesday, it wasn't even on the weekends. Sure, I'd go there but not if I have to wait one hour.

This is my order. Earl Grey rolled ice cream with raspberry, mochi, oreo, toasted marshmallow, raspberry sauce. As you can see, they need little more practice to roll up. Still, tastes good. All that for only $7!
And this was surprise. We were the last customers, and the owner made it for us.
