NYC Quick Chop! Spot Dessert Bar

Spot Dessert Bar - 13 St Marks Place, NYC, 10003

Always on the look out for dessert, I (Mirko) was told about Spot Dessert Bar, and more specifically about their Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake.

Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake - $9.75
I had heard about this dessert from a friend of mine for a week, so when I had the chance I decided to go and give it a try. After the wrap that it was given, this dessert had a lot to live up to. For me, there were a few criteria that would make this cake a winner:

1) The chocolate cake itself would need to be moist 
2) There needed to be a strong green tea flavour
3) The 'lava' element of the cake needed to be spot on

Luckily, this dish lived up to all three criteria. The cake was soft and moist and balanced out the green tea flavour (which for some people's palate can be hit and miss). The addition of green tea powder, green tea ice-cream and then the green tea ganache definitely made the diner remember it was a green tea lava cake. The addition of the sweet crumb added an additional textural element to the dish.

Asian desserts can be a little hit and miss, however Spot is spot on! I will definitely be back to try their other desserts, especially with a tapas menu where you can purchase 3-5 desserts or the Omakase (6 desserts, 4 macarons and a pot of tea) if you bring enough people you can try the entire dessert range. If you are looking for somewhere new, give Spot a go!
