Back at Frankie & Jo’s because there is one more flavour I want to try — tahini chocolate! It’s quite interesting; sweet, nutty and salty at the same time with lashings of sesame fudge throughout. The staff recommended adding the vegan chocolate sauce and I’m game for it of course #yestomorechocolate

It was second time lucky with ca ca o カカオ, a chocolate specialty shop from Kamakura. The website listed Shinjuku NEWoMan as one of the two Tokyo branches but I couldn’t find it a few days ago. I’m now 100% sure it had shut down unless someone tells me otherwise. So when I walked past the other outlet at Lumine, I ain’t leaving without getting myself some choco treats of course! The soft serve made from Colombian beans was excellent, as was the bittersweet 61% dark chocolate ganache tart with a delightfully smooth filling and firm buttery crust (albeit I prefer a thinner shell).

I know it’s early days (only Day 18!) but I think I’ve found my firm #1 favourite gelateria in Tokyo. Buon’Amore ブオン・アモーレ supposedly churns “healthier” gelato with low/no sugar and what got to me were the beautifully smooth texture and deep intense flavours. I sampled a few (moringa matcha is a funky one) and settled on pistachio and dark chocolate. This is one of those times when I just want to keep on eating and eating. So sooo good.

If a chocolate soft serve is good and creamy and ticks all the boxes of what a soft serve should be, words are superfluous.

P.S. the chef behind Le Chocolat De H is the owner of Mont St Clair, a famous patisserie in Tokyo so this is legit.

I have a terrible sweet tooth but I try to find “healthier” alternatives most of the time. Like dairy-free ice cream, or agave-sweetened desserts. They make me feel better about inhaling sugar haha. Finally found something not so sinful at Gelateria Tie-An. They do soy versions and apparently the bestseller has edamame in it. Too funky for me though; I’ll stick to my usual dark chocolate, matcha (can skip the one here), and kinako kuromitsu. The kinako kuro is very good! More intense and much better than Pariya’s.

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!

I don’t understand why Magie Du Chocolat マジ・ドゥ・ショコラ is so popular. There’s constantly a stream of people queuing and because I was sitting right next to the cashier, I could see how much those people were spending. Let’s just say they didn’t hesitate to fork out yen for chocolates. But I was not impressed with their 35% & 75% mixed chocolate soft serve, and the signature baked chocolate soufflé cakes (matcha so sweet omg). Average and very forgettable.
