Ramekin Serves Up Sweet Little Treats in Los Feliz
Businessman Paul Yoo and chef Jason Park have a sweet treat up their sleeve: a new desserts shop in Los Feliz, where the treats are served in mini ramekin dishes. Chef Park has worked in restaurants in Valencia, and Yoo was one of the investors that helped bring the much-loved Mexicali Taco Co. over to its new, glossy location on Figueroa in Downtown L.A.
For their new project, which is taking over the former Paradis gelato shop in Los Feliz, the two are focusing on cobblers, tarts, and other desserts served in ramekins. (Could this be the pastry world's answer to the Mason jar trend?)
Baked-to-order desserts include berry cobbler, chocolate bread pudding, apple cake and rotating cookies that are perfectly "under-baked" and gooey fresh out-of-the-oven. Other desserts include passion fruit panna cotta, marscarpone cheesecake, banana cream pie and a variety of fruit tarts.
As much as possible is made in-house, including the butter and almond milk that are used in many of the pastries. They also source raw milk, pressed juice, and raw coconut water are choices to accompany the pastries. You can click on for a look at some of the sweets.
