Also on their Top 100,the Green-tea cupcake at Amai Tea & Bake House.
In a city that is both health-obsessed and willing to wait hours for cupcakes, this Japanese twist on tradition should be at the top of everyone’s list: The light, moist cake and silken buttercream are balanced by the intense flavor of ceremonial-grade matcha green tea. Maybe—just maybe—the bonus ingredient’s health benefits are enough to counteract everything else.
I shall be adding Amai to the cupcake tour of NY list for sure! I think Manny will love it there- they do some rather fab looking brownies!
