Today review is not on a restaurant or food truck. Instead, I will review couple recipes that I tried this past few week.
The website is run by Namiko Chen, and her recipes ranged from appetizers, full meals, sushis, and my favorite, desserts. Over the past few weeks, I tried 4 different recipes from her website, and here's my thoughts on them. Apology for the not so great pictures.
Japanese/Souffle CheesecakeThis is one of the desserts I wanted to try the most, and it definitely made me work for it. To start, this is not your traditional baked cheesecake. Instead, I had to put the pan into a rack with boiling water, and then I put it in the oven for a good two hours because it didn't cook as far as expected. But the cheesecake turned out great. It was moist all the way to the center since the water kept some moisture in the oven so it didn't dry out the cake. If you are up to the challenge, this is a great recipe to try.

Green Tea and Chocolate Steamed Cake

These next two desserts were made with pretty much the same recipe, except one is with chocolate powder, and the other one with matcha powder. With just 8 ingredients and easy steps, these were also very easy to make. Just boil them for 10 minutes in a ramekin and you have yourself a great little cake. What I like about them is that it isn't overly sweet, easy to make, and I can justify to myself that since it has matcha powder I can have multiple of them at once :p.
