DIY Cotton Candy at Kenka, NYC

A hip Japanese restaurant in New York has put an innovative spin on the after dinner treat. Instead of passing out mints or little chocolates after a meal of gyozo and okonomiyaki, the East Village restaurant gives each patron a tiny jar of bright pink sugar.

Without further explanation, this would seem a little bit odd, but Kenka, as the Japanese eatery is called, has really dreamed up something quite sweet.

The pink crystals are actually meant to be carried out to the door of the restaurants where a machine awaits: a cotton candy machine! Each person gets to take turns dumping in their sugar to create their very own take-away cotton candy cone!
