, where boozy drinks and brassy, pork-heavy cooking rule the roost. As of 
last week, however, these ingredients are showing off their sweeter sides 
in various ice cream flavors made by L.A. Creamery. Since buying the 
company nearly three months ago, Fleischman has overseen the addition of a 
number of flavors that fit the Umami ethos of 'more is more is more.' 
Liquor is featured in many of the pints ($9 each; takeout only), and we 
aren't talking smooth booze flavors, the alcohol burned off; you have to be 
over 21 to buy these ice creams. The Moonshine, peppered with caramel corn, 
is overly dominated by the booze's heat. But L.A. Creamery's take on 
Scoops' Grape Nuts-studded Brown Brown Bread

flavor is far more successful. Aptly named Boozy Breakfast, it's spiked 
with coffee liqueur, which is sweeter and lower in alcohol than the 
moonshine and adds a nice, measured burn. Pork Phat is the most Umami-like 
of all, its name referring to the Ib?rico pork lardo that flavors it. 
Accompanied by chunks of Asian pear and a touch of bracing mint, this is a 
surprisingly mellow flavor, but there's an undeniable animal funk lurking 
behind the sweet fa?ade. Umamicatessen, 852 S. Broadway, Downtown;
