Alimama

OPENED836 DAYS AGO

There’s a new Asian dessert spot in Chinatown – Alimama – offering sweet treats and small bites without the guilt.

Being faced with gluten-intolerance herself, owner Janie Wang wanted to create gluten-free options that are both healthy and creative.

The Spot:

Contrasting the Chinatown scene, the small location has a minimalistic design with modern furnishings, including a handmade Venetian plaster wall.

The Food:

Alimama revolves around mochi, a Japanese rice cake that is naturally gluten-free, but Wang has given the traditional treat a touch of New York – think American flavors and mochi donuts. Marrying traditional ingredients with modern flavors, mochi donuts are available in flavors like matcha toasted rice krispies, caramelized sugar and salted Nutella caramel, while the Daifuku fillings include ube (purple sweet potato commonly used in desserts) and yuzu (a Japanese citrus fruit). Along with their mochi-inspired desserts, Alimama offers cream puffs with seasonal fillings.

The Drinks:

Keeping a healthy lifestyle in mind, the organic drink menu contains a selection of tonics (made with cold-pressed juices), cold-brewed tea with special house blends (Ginseng Goji Berry) and the usual hot teas.

In a Nutshell:

As Asian desserts are taking over the city one by one – The Little One, Taiyaki, and Soft Swerve to name a few – it will be interesting to see how Alimama manages the competition.
