I’ve pretty much tried all desserts from Pierre Hermé (yes I’m a fangirl!) and the #1 absolute top favourite is Dépaysé, a giant intense matcha macaron with azuki compote and citrusy lime. It’s a seasonal special so every time we see this, we don’t even think of sharing. One each, period.

Ok, I can totally foresee myself lunching at Cityshop Delicatessen at least once a week. I love the fresh salads, the bold flavours, the gorgeous colours! Plus they go beyond the usual salad greens; think roasted pumpkin and brussel sprouts, fennel and kale with hijiki seaweed — basically salads not commonly found in Japan. Wish there’s more such delis in Tokyo to take my money ha.

Ooooo glad I found Pariya パリヤ, a gelato place I like! Picked dark chocolate (always!) and kinako kuromitsu; that tiny glob you see there is almond coffee. Before handing the cup to you, the staff will ask whether you want to try any other flavour so you get a mini serving of the desired flavour, so cute! P.S. Pariya is also the supplier of salads at Cityshop Deli, +++ points because I’m a fan!

Oh Tokyo, I underestimated your passion for food again. I thought no one will want salads for Saturday brunch but of course, I was so wrong. Cityshop シティショップ opens at 11.30am and there was already a long queue before doors opened. And the line kept forming.

At any one time, there are 15 “delis” (i.e. salads) available, from meat and fish to grains and roasted veg. I picked 5 to customise my lunch plate and it was aesthetically pleasing with so many vibrant colours. Not to mention delicious too, with lots of flavours from the marinations and dressings. Top favourites include the roasted brussel sprouts and cauliflower, saury with Japanese salsa, and pumpkin with yogurt sauce. Almost Ottolenghi-ish!
