Ken's Cafe Tokyo
Time Out says
There’s no fussing with espresso powder or vanilla extract in this kitchen. Ken’s Cafe Tokyo sticks to the basics by using just four ingredients in their only product. Unsalted butter, sugar, eggs and chocolate make for a simple yet winning combination in one of the most decadent chocolate gâteaux you’ll ever enjoy.
Despite its unassuming appearance – it looks like a plain chocolate terrine – the ¥3,000 cake has earned Ken’s Cafe a coveted spot in the Top 50 Dessert Shops list by the prestigious Japan Sweets Award for three consecutive years. Eat it at room temperature and it’s a rich gâteau. When chilled, its texture resembles that of ganache, and when warmed, the centre liquifies like molten chocolate cake that you can combine with a scoop of ice cream.
