Cha-An (NYC: East Village)

By in 03: NYC, Favorite Food Entries

This time it’s Japanese teahouse! Also around the little Tokyo corner. I got the Chef’s 3 course dessert specials. $16 with your choice of tea.
Macha Latte, very good but bad choice, sweet vs sweet… XP Chocolate Shouffle with mochi.
Red Bean icecream with Sake, and fancy bamboo box for cookies. ^^;;
Even though small space they still made an effort to build a traditional zen garden inside. 😀 I don’t think there’s such sweet + teahouse in LA.

    Japanese sweets may not be the most delicious but they definitely have the best style! 3 desserts plus macaron and only 16 dollars – very worth it!

    I know…the dark wood and green and bamboo and muted burgandy, the color combination is just so elegant and classy. Just elevate a regular almond cookie to another level ^^;;; (and you know I don’t like red beans, but with this aesthetics it suddenly taste special).

    makes me feel like I missed out so much while living in LA! If I were in NY I could’ve gone to place like this 😀
