After Won Jo, we decided it was time for dessert. Somehow we ended up in Soho, and stumbled upon a cute little Japanese cafe. Their siphon technique of brewing coffee ultimately convinced me to enter.
The ambiance was quite chill, with dim lighting, soothing green-tea colored couches, and a non-rushed (i.e. slow) waitstaff. The place also had a lot of personality, with quirky cartoon drawings of a girl adorning the walls. They even had bookshelf filled with (outdated) manga and live theater magazines in the corner. It reminded me of a Japanese Central Perk.
Green Tea Parfait - $6.75
Most of us got a variation of this. It consisted of a rich scoop of relatively bitter green tea ice cream atop fresh fruit (berries, pineapple, banana), atop red bean, more ice cream, and finally some corn flakes. It was good and not too heavy, and the best part was the corn flakes, which added a good crunch to the sweet mix. It was unfortunate that we weren't hungry enough for the savory entrees, which included curries, pastas, and omurice. I will be sure to check them out next time.
After that we went to Boulevard, which was dandy.
