I EAT: Halloween Dessert Crawl

In addition to wrecking sizable havoc on downtown Manhattan, Sandy's done quite the number on my Halloween week plans. So thankfully, I managed to get a brisk late-night East Village dessert crawl in days before the storm. My adult(ish) Manhattan version of trick-or-treating.

First up, Spot. One of my favorite dessert bars because it manages to simultaneously satisfy my cravings for Asian and Western desserts. I'm talking green tea cupcakes, Thai tea creme brulee, and bubble tea all in one place. Mindblowing. And almost enough to make me not miss Oakland and its amazing late-night Hong Kong dessert cafes. Almost. After that, I made a pit-stop at the infamous Butter Lane Cupcakes to try out their new fall menu. I've got to hand it to Butter Lane; their cupcakes aren't my favorite, but their frosting is unbeatable. And in case you were wondering, that is the gloriously eery and elegant Lincoln Center you see in all the pictures. It's where I wolfed down the last of my Halloween treats and where...well, I'll finish this sentence in tomorrow's blog post. Cheeky me. 

Until then, Happy Halloween everyone. Pictures (and descriptive captions) after the jump!






Golden Toast: crispy, honey-coated bread served with strawberries and condensed milk ice cream. The highlight of the night!


Green Tea Lava Cake: chocolate lava cake also filled with green tea lava, served with green tea ice cream.



Cold chocolate and bubble tea!





On the left: vanilla cupcake with apple spice frosting. On the right: chocolate cupcake with pumpkin frosting. Fair warning: try the pumpkin frosting and you'll wind up begging them for a pint of it to tide you through the Fall.

  7. Good to see Lincoln Center! Used to be our haunt during Opera and Ballet season. I miss those huge Chagall paintings inside! And those treats look yummy, and ghoulishly Halloween-y with the green slime (uh, green tea ice cream?) oozing out of the chocolate cake. Happy Halloween and glad to see that Sandy didn't affect you too badly. Heard most of the Upper East Side was spared. -- J xxx
