Little Tokyo's Piccomolo Opens Before Pinkberry

By chance or design, the new Piccomolo Italian Ice Cream in Little Tokyo opened its doors Tuesday during the Little Tokyo/Arts District Farmers Market and the ice cream selections are promising. Business was brisk, surely helped by the heavier foot traffic the market gives (gave) Weller Court. People were ducking in to get samples on those tiny spoons.

Piccomolo is in a ground floor retail space in the sharp corner of a building. Evidently a travel agency was once there according to a local.

This soft grand opening, of course, beats the very quiet Pinkberry located down the street, across from the Japanese Village Plaza. Similar in taste and texture is JVP's Ceflore Italian Yogurt that is right in between Little Tokyo's famed Mikawaya Mochi Ice Cream and long-time shop Little Tokyo Ice Cream.

Now really, how much ice cream or yogurt can one really need?
