Sugar Rush: Castella Cake at Tous Les Jours
Tous Les Jours, a chain of French-Asian bakeries from Korea, recently replaced Koryodang on 32nd Street. There's a significant amount of overlap between the types of pastries and sweets offered at this new bakery, and one of my favorites is the Honey Castella ($3.75). It's similar to the popular Japanese Castella cake, only the Korean version is lighter and more fluffy. Sweetened with a generous hand of honey, imagine the richness of pound cake in the body of sponge cake. I like to peel off the browned top layer, eat it first, and then dive into the loaf.
