Ume Sweets (Berkeley)

New “Asian dessert” (their term) place just off of Telegraph, serving desserts ready made from refrigerator cases. Crepes, sago items, custards, purple rice, coconut milk puddings, a dessert soup with those white wood ear like mushrooms, lots of fresh and good looking stuff to compete with the chains in the neighborhood.

Two crepes were great and reminded me of blintzes.

Sweetened cream in the Durian crepe cushioned the blow of the maligned fruit, and was very pleasing.

Matcha crepe had a few beans (Adzuki?) which gave texture to the sweetened filling.

Open 11am-9:30pm, closed on Sundays.
