The Little One is a brand new dessert shop in the Chinatown area serving up delicious Japanese treats.
The Japanese confections feature tea as some of the ingredients, but are also meant to be paired with the teas offered, such as hojicha and matcha. This pairing is known as wagashi. Their 9-item menu covers dorayaki (which are basically small pancake sandwiches), monaka (thin crisp wafers with ice cream sandwiched in between), and shaved ice.
