Libertable‘s porcini mushroom mont blanc was ok but I like the “veggie in cakes” concept enough to give it another go. This time, the dark chocolate with black truffle cake got to me. In a good way. It’s such a dramatic cake; both sweet and savoury flavours are so wonderfully balanced.

I plan all my meals. Like seriously, ALL. Impromptu is not in my vocabulary because life is too short for mediocre food. So I took a big risk (yes I exaggerate ha) when I stepped into Patisserie Cacahouete Paris パティスリー カカオエット・パリ as this was not on my to-go list. But I couldn’t resist when I saw so many locals queuing! Walked out with a crunchy chocolate cake with mango, a lovely pairing which I really like. Anyway, this place is apparently famous for their cubed cream puffs (there’s pistachio!), should I try that next hmm.

I find it interesting that some brands dare to claim that they are the world’s best. Gomaya Kuki has “the world’s richest sesame ice cream”; bubó Barcelona has “the world’s best chocolate cake”; I asked K whether we should state Matchaya has “the world’s best matcha soft serve” and he rejected me hahaha.

bubó Barcelona ブボ バルセロナ is by famous chef Carles Mampel and it’s coincidentally (?) right across Dominque Ansel Bakery in Omotesando. Xabina (シャビーナ) was voted best chocolate cake in Lyon in 2005 and that’s what I came for. Pricey at 1,000円 for a small cake but the quality of chocolate is undeniable. Dark, rich and very smooth. Not convinced it’s the best in the world though.

Tsujiri = no-fail, always-satisfying green tea soft serve to us. This time we tried to be a little more adventurous by getting the parfait and black tea chocolate cake as well. Mistake, mistake. Matcha roll was so dry, choc cake was very sweet, but luckily the solid soft serve was still as good as ever!

P.S. We are on our second rewards card now yay! Which also means we have spent more than $100 on ice cream, oh man.
