Dining Out: Japanese Sweets

We finished up our dinner with the cousins with a real surprise - dessert from Kyotofu, a Japanese confectionery.

Why was this exciting for me? So many options for a girl who can't have dairy. (Don't worry I took photos of all the yummy goodness. Let me warn you that they're going to make your mouth water.)

A vegan flourless chocolate cake. Vanilla creme brûlée.

Two options of soft serve: pumpkin spice and vanilla bean.

While looking on, we saw many sweets prepared and then plated. Like sushi each dessert was a work of art. I hope San Francisco or the greater Bay Area gets such a confectionery soon!

The confectionery was packed, the wait for a table for 4 or seats at the bar was at least twenty minutes. We opted instead for take out. Cubes had the cake to go. It was paired with vanilla bean soft serve and a soymilk Carmel sauce. I had a swirl of pumpkin spice and vanilla bean soft serve with chocolate brownie bits and coffee yokan.

The brownie bits were light and moist, melt in your mouth deliciousness. Of the two soy soft serve options, the vanilla bean paired the best with the brownie. The coffee blended nicely with the pumpkin.
