Bananas for Bananas

So, I enjoy banana flavored desserts but they're hard to find. A search of the boards didn't yield a whole lot of info.

Some recent banana desserts that I've enjoyed include: the Banana Banana Banana dessert at Chaya Brasserie; the caramelized banana cream pie at Ruths' Chris; the banana ice cream at Coldstone creamery; deep fried bananas (?plantains) from Philipino restaurants with black sesame seeds on them (but I don't know of a specific place in the South Bay to get them... my Philipina coworkers usually bring them); and even the havana banana split at Jerry's.

I suppose having this many desserts already isn't that bad of a start. However, this being chowhound, I thought I'd see if anyone here knows of any outstanding banana desserts in the LA area? If they're located in the South Bay, even better.

Some examples....
A tasty bananas foster done tableside?
Banana crepes?
Banana cakes or muffins?
An outstanding banana pudding or ice cream?
Banana bread (preferably without nuts)?

Looking forward to hearing any suggestions.
