Dessert Bar San Diego

With their mixture of colors and quirkiness, Asian desserts can be a breathtaking sight to behold – not to mention an Instagram addict's dream. If you're okay with the sugar intake, here are fifteen spots around San Diego to fill up on Harajuku-style crepes, boba teas, shaved Korean snow, liquid Nitrogen frozen ice cream and more.

1 Angels & Hearts: Harajuku Crêperie

Filled with regular or mochi ice cream, fresh fruit and other sweet treats the Harajuku-style crepes here come rolled up in a handy to hold cone. If dessert crepes aren’t your thing the shaved Japanese snow is a great alternative – flavors include lychee, taro and green tea - each ‘snow angel’ comes topped with popping boba pearls and whipped cream.

4 Snoice

Located in Spring Valley's Kababayan Bakery, Snoice serves up shaved snow and pandesal ice cream sandwiches ($3) in addition to popular Filipino dessert, halo halo, which literally translates as “mix mix”.

Six core snows – original, strawberry, green tea, lychee, black sesame and salted caramel – are available on rotation in addition to special, seasonal flavors (you’ll currently find cookies & cream, horchata and super lemon on the board). The hand shaved, melt-in-your-mouth frozen ribbons can be topped with assorted fruits, candies or mochi and expertly finished off with a healthy squeeze of condensed milk.

This cult Korean bakery chain (which also has an outpost within Kearny Mesa’s Zion Market) is a go-to for puddings and delectable French-style pastries.
