I love dessert. Like serious love. I have such as major sweet tooth, so finding good desserts is always really high on my list. This is why I am surprised Kyotofu did not hit my radar until last week. Wanting dessert, and wanting to try something different, my husband and I hit the internet and he suggested Kyotofu. I had seen it in searches before but had never investigated what it was as he's not a massive fan of Japanese food. Well, it's Japanese, specializing in Japanese dessert with about half the menu being marked gluten free. This he had no qualms about and we decided to go.
Walking in, it was obvious this was a place I should have come to long ago - they had a whole case of gluten free pastries including cookies and muffins.
We were seated and both ordered the green tea brulee. I'm a sucker for creme brulee which made this sound amazing. The presentation was amazing (top photo). The brulee was incredible. A bit odd at first because it was very green tea-y, but as long as you're a fan of green tea you'll be into it. It was less sweet than a typical creme brulee, but had a very nice amount of sweetness that was not over the top and definitely enjoyable. The vanilla bean cream on the side was also very nice, and well complimented the brulee. To put it this way, I had no trouble cleaning off this plate. Will definitely be back, and highly recommend to those in the city.
