DTLA: Yoonycat Toast Popup at Demitasse Recap

Japanese tomato and lebni toast


Recently I checked out a toast popup at Demitasse. Chef Susan Yoon aka “Yoonycat” prepared three wonderful toasts.

I can eat breakfast any time of the day. And when I first saw the toasts on Instagram, I knew I had to go try them.

My buddy had the Japanese tomato and lebni toast with seaweed which gave it such an interesting flavor profile. I loved these modern toasts!

I got the ricotta and pancetta jam toast.

I can never eat normal toast again. I kept wondering how did Chef Susan get the toast so perfectly crispy yet retain a softness to the bread? And the toppings. Yes, all wonderful! Loved the pickled veggies along with the fluffy cloud-soft ricotta and savory pancetta jam.

I washed my toast down with coffee like a good American. But what toast! And lovely latte art!

I hope Chef Susan does more popups soon. I missed the breakfast one last week but I’m rooting for more toast popups!
