Score: 7.2/10

Young’s Dessert Bar is comfortable place for trendy Asian desserts. That means those Japanese souffle pancakes and the multilayered crepe cakes. There’s also a bunch of other tasty stuff.

The first thing you notice about this place is the presentation. This place is located downstairs, but it is roomy. The aesthetics are clean and pleasing to the eye. The seating is comfortable and roomy.

We ordered a slice of the Matcha Mille Crepe Cake (cost $8.50) and the Tiramisu Souffle Pancakes (cost $14.50). The souffle pancakes take about twenty minutes to make since souffle must be made when ordered, otherwise it just ends up flat. The souffle pancakes also come with some whipped cream, ice cream and a few pieces of fruit.

The first thing you notice about these dishes is the presentation. This is some artistic stuff with swishes and dabs all over the plate. It’s the kind of thing I’d expect from higher end, Western dessert place.

The food itself was good. I’ve had crepe cakes from a number of places and the ones here were only slightly better than other places. I think its the cream. There was just something fresh about it. It didn’t taste like something that had been sitting in the fridge for days. The souffle pancakes was also good. I don’t love the souffle pancakes as a concept, so I can’t really blame this place for making a good version of a food item I am not impressed by.

Service was fine, though she was strangely nervous.

Overall, this place was great. The dessert place that I normally recommend in Flushing is Spot Dessert Bar because the desserts are good, though the seating is cramped. Young’s Dessert Bar has now become my go to recommendation because not only are the desserts good and appealing to the eyes, the seating is leagues above Spot’s seating arrangement. Spot’s desserts are still original and delicious though, but that cramped seating is just impossible for large groups.

Additionally, I am fearful this place will go out of business because of the economic downturn caused by Coronavirus fears. This place was great and I hope it stick around for a long time.
