Cha An is a true treasure in East Village. Their desserts are sweet and delicate. I came again with some visitors and friends, and everybody was happy with their selection.
I ordered the Black Sesame Creme brulee and I love it! The creme brulee is sweet but not overpowering. The taste of black sesame lingers. My boyfriend got their seasonal special and it was like an ice drink, which has a lot of Japanese sweets inside. That is quite unique as well.
My cousin got their lychee sake cocktail and wow it was too strong for me :)
There is always a wait here though so be prepared. Nevertheless, it is a good alternative to western desserts and you could taste a good variety of Japanese teas.
