Dining at this Japanese, dessert-driven eatery can be a surreal experience. French techniques are paired with Eastern ingredients, often swapping out milk and cream for tofu. They succeed with dishes such as a concoction of black-sugar syrup and silky tofu—an ideal eggless crème caramel—and a creamy tofu-rice pudding. Savory-seekers can cobble together a meal of small bites: gently spiced miniature rice balls and fluffy chicken-and-tofu meatballs.
