If you had to choose your last meal on earth, what would it be?
For the folks at ChikaLicious Dessert Club, that meal would start and end with dessert. Since 2003, Chika and Dan Tillman have been serving three course dinners of entirely desserts at their East Village Location.
See Mom? Chocolate is a perfectly acceptable meal!
From the amuse-bouche to the petite fours, ChikaLicious has earned a reputation for exotic, surprising desserts, becoming a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. It can be a bit competitive to get a table, but for your daily dose of sweetness, you can try their famous desserts a la carte at the ChikaLicious across the street.
The Dessert Club has three major staples: creme puffs, crepe cakes, and dough’ssants. A master of classic dessert recipes, the bakers at ChikaLicious have created some of the most addictive sweets in Manhattan.
1. Creme Puffs: Bite-sized perfection. Their crisp, lightly sweet exterior conceals a rich, decadent filling. It’s important to note that they don’t skimp on the cream: there’s so much stuffed inside this tiny puff that you’ll be licking your plate clean. Try all four flavors: vanilla, creme brûlée, Boston creme, and banana.
2. Crepe Cakes: A classic French cake made up of layers of paper thin crepes separated by mousse, ChikaLicious’ version is available in vanilla, Nutella (!!!), or green tea. Soft, sweet, and deliciously uncomplicated, these beautiful cakes are one of the dessert bar’s most popular offerings, and it’s easy to see why: they taste even better than they look. Fresh and flaky, with a touch of rich, gooey mousse.
3. Dough’ssants: Baked, rather than fried, this popular dessert hybrid is lighter than your typical donut. Soft inside and satisfyingly crispy outside, the dough’ssant is the cronut’s worthy rival. They even have seasonal flavors like pumpkin pie (and more to come!). Yes, please.
