While the chocolate brownie may have its roots in America, the fudgy dessert has spawned a wide variety of international variations -- one of which is côte cour's indulgent Tokyo Brownie. Made from high-end chocolate and sliced into perfectly portioned strips, the Japanese dessert is a welcome take on a familiar treat.
côte cour is a Tokyo-based chocolate shop that specializes in elevating "the flavor of the simple home-baked brownie to a rare luxury." The shop uses two types of couverture chocolate, which has been combined to create brownies with a strong coco flavor. The Tokyo Brownie is the most popular of those available and is recommended as a souvenir for visitors to the city. Other varieties include the Earl Grey Brownie and a selection of Raw Brownies in flavors such as Almond, Orange, and Sea Salt.
