Kearny Mesa frozen treat shop Somi Somi will open this July in Mira Mesa and is also heading to Westfield UTC. Founded in Los Angeles’ Koreatown, the Convoy store was just the second location for the brand, which has since multiplied throughout Southern California. Along with these two additional stores for San Diego, its big expansion push includes several outposts in Texas and even more for California.
Somi Somi’s Instagrammable menu is based on soft-serve ice cream in flavors like milk, matcha, black sesame, and chocolate. Swirled into freshly-made, fish-shaped cones that are filled with Nutella, custard, red bean, or taro, the ice cream comes with optional toppings ranging from macarons to strawberries and Oreo crumbles. The shop also sells the fish-shaped pastries a la carte, with a savory or sweet stuffing including cheddar and red bean and cream cheese.
