Kitsby is a café/bakery in Williamsburg that’s decorated with wood-paneled walls and marble countertops with Asian-inspired desserts that don’t disappoint. Taiwanese-American Amy Hsiao and Hongkonger Maverick Wong created this place because they were inspired by childhood memories of baking days past. Kitsby started as a standalone DIY baking kit - as of 2019, Hsiao and Wong expanded Kitsby to include a full-blown brick-and-mortar location. Order a crème puff baking kit off their website for a fun at-home activity, or stop by their dessert bar. I can’t get enough of the salted egg yolk lava cake, which is basically the warm, oozing salted egg yolk buns found at dim sum but come dressed in a lava cake outfitted with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
