Chowhounds think the desserts at Sweet Crush Ice Bar are reason enough to brave the traffic and nightmarish parking in Brentwood. Sweet Crush serves Asian-inspired shaved snow, made of layers of ice flavored with various syrups and toppings, much lighter than traditional ice cream. (Shaved snow is a growing trend around LA.) Ingredients here are high quality, says fatschmat, who was “blown away by the purity.” Try the Earl Grey for a unique taste, or classic chocolate or vanilla.
