Japanese Dessert Shop with Dominique Ansel Pedigree Quietly Begins Service on East Broadway

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018 at 5:10 am by

There is a new Japanese dessert shop in Chinatown, and with a pastry pedigree to boot.

The Little One opened at 150 East Broadway a couple weeks ago.

According to Eater, the proprietors behind the newcomer are pastry chefs (and longtime friends) Olivia Leung and Eddie Zheng. Both boast credentials, too, having worked at places like Dominique Ansel Bakery and WD-50 respectively.

The Little One sure lives up to its name, slinging sweets in a tiny storefront with five tables.

There are ten overpriced dessert items on the menu paired with hot and cold beverages like spiced apple ginger tea, malted hot chocolate, and sparkling cucumber limeade. Treats include Monaka ice cream, shaved ice, and Dorayaki. Going forward, Zheng and Leung are apparently planning seasonal swaps on the offerings, but some staples will remain.
