Black sesame lattes with toasted marshmallows, soft-as-snow milk shaved ice served with coffee jelly, and Japanese french toast are just a few of the delicacies available at Japanese tea house and dessert shop Chakon Cafe. Located in Al Manzil Souk, this is the second outlet from the popular sweets destination, which hails from Kamakura, a seaside city just south of Tokyo, Japan.
Along with a small menu featuring dishes such as granola and yogurt mouse and black sesame kinako mochi (a traditional Japanese sweet dusted with toasted soybean flour), the minimalist café offers a selection of dried citrus fruits, including yazu, blood orange, iyokan, and amanatsu peels, as well as specialty teas the likes of genmaicha, fukamushi sencha, and mizudashi sencha, all available for purchase in store.
