I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Black Sesame Créme Brulée at CHA AN TEA HOUSE

Cha An Tea House is a pretty unique oasis in the East Village. This small Japanese tea house provides you with a refined experience for after or pre-dinner tea, toasts, and desserts. I like to end the night here with a few sweets, most notably their popular black sesame créme brulée, which is composed of a nutty black sesame pudding, bruléed sugar, and then another hit of black sesame in the form of ice cream and a crunchy tuile. Price: $9.50
