Whether you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon tea, lunch, dessert, or simply a retreat in the East Village, Cha-an is your choice. Though primarily a tea house in it’s conception, Cha-an now serves healthy creative meals and delicate desserts alongside a great variety of teas. Try the Cha-an set served with 12-grain-rice, tea-smoked salmon, a side of vegetables and soymilk quiche. Don’t be surprised to find the all-female staff working calmly through an open kitchen. Sounds of water running and knives cutting add to an already meditative ambiance.
A light non-baked flan made with sakura leaves and a slight touch of salt. Refreshing dessert perfect for hot summer days!
