Ken's Cafe - A Gluten Free Menu
The cafe boasts that its desserts are made from a unique superior kind of chocolate. Perhaps you know the French brand Valrhona, a very-well regarded chocolate company that creates superior quality products without the use of lecithin or artificial flavourings. Well, the Ken's Cafe uses a special blend of Valrhona chocolate made especially for them: Ken's Blend Noir (black) 70%.
*Please note that the staff are not fluent in English so it is preferable to go to to the cafe directly than to call over the phone.
The result is supreme, exquisite gluten-free chocolate cakes that aren't too sweet and are rich with natural flavors. The key to making such a perfect gluten-free cake is to use only top-quality ingredients, most of which are produced domestically. The butter, for instance, is salt-free and comes from Japan's cream of the crop dairy farms. The Eggs are chosen to have a "mukashinoaji" (a rustic flavor from the past).
Ken's Cafe Tokyo is located a 3-minute walk from the Shinjuku Gyoenmae Station or about a 15-minute walk from the Shinjuku Station (South Exit).
If the idea of gluten-free cakes is somewhat of an inferior imitation of cakes that use flour, the chocolate cakes offered at Ken's Cafe Tokyo will completely shatter what you had thought! Without the use of any flour, the cake has won Japan's Sweets Award for 2016, and was selected by Tabelog as the No 1 chocolate store in all of Japan for 6 years in a row! Once you have a taste, you'll understand!
Microwave heating will cause the cake to be very smooth inside! That texture is so pleasant and is another reason why people love Ken's Cafe Tokyo.
Each bite is so incredibly smooth and flavorful, it will wake your senses. You've never really had chocolate cake until you try this one. It's simply heavenly.
You can only have the cake to go. Many people buy the chocolate cakes, worth about 3,000 yen, and offer them as a present to a special someone.
