During the summer, I went to the OC Night Market and the 626 Night Market. They’re both huge Asian-inspired street fairs with a variety of food vendors from their local area. Coming from San Diego, I found it to be a great way to sample different types of food from Orange County and Los Angeles in one location. When attending these night markets, there was always that one booth with a long line. The one booth that will remain “the one that got away” until I found the strength to actually wait in line. That booth was the “rolled ice cream” booth. Recently, social media reminded me of the dessert when friends on Facebook started sharing the announcement of Bing Haus’s soft opening, the first rolled ice cream spot in San Diego. Soon after, a flood of photos and videos invaded my Instagram feed. Since I’m an ice cream lover, long line or not….. I HAD to go to this place.
Above is the freshly made Black Sesame ice cream with cheesecake, honey, and sesame seed toppings. A rare flavor to find and done well.
The rolled ice cream costs $6.25. Above is the colorful Fruity Pebbles ice cream with extra fruity pebbles and strawberry toppings. Bing Haus also serves coffee, lattes, hot tea and iced tea.

(Inside scoop: I stopped by on a weekday afternoon to avoid the long lines. Each order takes about 10 minutes.)
