Jun's green-tea ice cream is a testament to subtlety

The green tea ice cream from Juns is like a spa for your mouth.

Dessert at Japanese restaurants is often an afterthought. It feels like a concession to diners. And that kind of halfhearted approach to the last course is how we end up with abominations like fried ice cream.

The saving grace for Japanese restaurants has always been mochi: the Japanese rice cake molded into little balls and filled with sweet paste or ice cream. But Jun's (7660 State Line Road) in Prairie Village has another option, green-tea ice cream, for those who doggedly believe they can squeeze in a bit more food after ordering too much sushi.

Refreshing is not a word commonly applied to ice cream, but it's the right descriptor for the patio furniture green ice cream. The cool, silky dessert is exactly what you want but never get from chocolate-mint candies that come with your check. Scientists keep telling us that green tea is good for us. Your taste buds will tell you that this green-tea ice cream is good for you. This is the sweeter side of palate cleansing.

Jun's is open from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 5 to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
