Kyotofu Brownies from NYC

Kyotofu in New York City is a Japanese inspired cafe with a large bakery menu.  I haven’t been here before, but I know it is not a vegan place.  Their menu lists what is vegan and what is not, though.  I can’t speak for their savory items, but I can speak about their vegan brownies.

I received a box full of individually wrapped brownies from Kyotofu in the mail.  I thought the presentation was adorable.  A fancy brown box with pink accents is my kind of style.  But what did the brownies taste like?…

…Not good.  Even though they were individually wrapped and marked with a “best buy” date a week later, they were very dry.  The flavor was also a super deep chocolate – not my kind of brownie.  It could have been better had they just been moist.  I could get over the flavor by warming them up and serving them a la mode, but I couldn’t get over the texture.  I hope they are better fresh from the store.

Even though these brownies left a bad taste in my mouth, I still might try Kyotofu’s other items if I should ever be in NYC (I hear they have soft serve!).
