A Quiet Moment at Cha-An
Cha-An might just be one of my favorite places in the city. The tiny little tea house tucked away on the second floor is a quiet oasis in the East Village. I stopped by the other day for a pot of green tea and a Chai for Mr. T.
Of course I can’t remember the name but it was super nutty and had a nice woody smell to it. Tea is the main draw here of course but I really come more for the desserts.
The Black Sesame Crème Brulee is one of my favorites of all time. It was interesting to see they changed up the presentation a bit but the flavors were all still spot on. It’s creamy and warm on the bottom and crisp and cool up top without being overly sweet. I tried to share with Mr. T but suddenly it was all gone and he was just staring at me. Oops! I had one of those tune out moments again which is really why I shouldn’t eat out with other people. Oh well- more for me!
