Gift This: Kyotofu for Vday

by Kayoko Akabori

Valentines Day is coming up (BARF), and while I am usually cynical about this day, you can win me over with a box of yummy treats from Kyotofu. I’m so easy!

As Sonja reviewed in December, Kyotofu is a cutesy little restaurant specializing in nouveau t0fu in the unexpected neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan. They’ve recently expanded their menu to include savory items, but their “thing” is definitely the sweets. Lucky for us they sell their cute little cakes togo in the front of their restaurant.

Chocolate souffle cupcakes

Matcha, almond, hojicha, and chocolate financiers– these are my favorite- so dense and delicious

Hand-dipped green tea chocolate tea cookies

Maple honey muffins

Blue cheese muffins

Chocolate souffle cupcakes– so light, lovely, and darling!

There are selling a special assortment of their cakes and house-made truffles in this nice box for Vday for $25

Or, just pick and choose as you wish and take it all home in this box. Just like cake boxes in Japan!
Kyotofu will also be hosting a special Vday night with a prix-fixe 3-course dessert menu which will include sake and champagne. Ooh la la.

My calendar is currently wide open on February 14- c’mon boys, ask me out!!!

    Yeah valentines’s day sucks already in the states. Here in Japan, it’s the girls only that give gifts to the guys. WTF?
    Also, Kayoko, congrats on your 100th post!
