We have a lot of excellent Asian sweet shops around Los Angeles. Here are at least some of them, all of which I recommend. Are there others?
the Thai dessert shop near Silom and Palms
the Indian sweet shop on Pioneer Blvd in Artesia
India Sweets and Spices all over
Ichiban, the Chinese candy store in the Chinese mall in San Gabriel
the Chinese dried fruit etc shop in the San Gabriel Superstore
the Armenian bakery on Hollywood Blvd a few blocks east of Thai Town
Fugetsu-Do in Little Tokyo
there's also a place similar to Fugetsu-Do in one of the Japanese shopping malls in or around Gardena
the Korean sweet shop on the supermarket level of the Koreatown galleria
there are Vietnamese sweet shops in Orange County, including one small but amazing dessert place that I stumbled on once but don't have an address for or anything
also I believe that Orange County has Middle Eastern sweet shops -- how about LA?
Are there any Philippino sweet shops? Cambodian? Indonesian? Central Asian? What are sweets from those countries even like?
