Summer comes to an end soon, but in L.A. the heat doesn't go away that easily. To help you cool off, several of our favorite restaurants and vendors inside downtown's Grand Central Market have introduced new dishes for the month of September.

The dishes range from full entrees to frozen deserts. Two venerable L.A. institutions, Knead & Co. Pasta Bar and Coolhaus, will be teaming up for The Freddo: an ice cream sandwich made with cannoli ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. We're especially ready to try Sticky Rice's yum woon sen, a glass noodle salad with Thai chiles, shrimp and ground chicken—the spicier the better, please. Chase all of it with a boozy snowcone from modern falafel stand Madcapra, or a Baja oyster shooter from The Oyster Gourmet.

Remember, Grand Central Market is open until 10 p.m. every day. Be sure to try the other dishes they introduced earlier this summer.
