When I think about creative desserts, I immediately think about Spot Dessert Bar in the East Village. This place is amazing and proposes truly original desserts crafted by Iron Chef of Thailand, Chef Ian Kittichai, like the matcha lava, a warm dark chocolate cake filled with matcha ganache and served with matcha green tea ice cream, or the Golden toast, a warm crispy honey buttered toast served with strawberries, and condensed milk ice cream (this is so buttery!). We recently went back after Jodi saw their coconut monkey bread on Instagram. This dessert is a monkey bread covered in fall spices, thai tea drizzle served with coconut milk ice cream. It comes sizzling hot and they will pour the Thai tea on top of the coconut milk ice cream. This was quite good, but not as good as the Milky Puff, a warm puff pastry with brûlée banana, white chocolate honey comb, corn flakes, served with condensed milk ice cream. This one is superb: crunchy, delightfully sweet and buttery, I definitely recommend it. And of course, I could not resist ordering a thai iced tea there, one of the many drinks they offer.
Spot Dessert Bar remains one of my top spots for original desserts in the city. But know that it can be crowded. But it is worth the wait!
Enjoy (I did)!
