We walked over from my apartment to 俺のBakery&Cafe at 9.30am and were shocked that a line was already forming for the sale of takeaway loaves at 10am. If you are dining at the cafe, you can skip the queue but full menu is only available after 10am so you still have to wait anyway. Both the tamago sando and azuki toast were tasty but we wouldn’t queue for the bread!

My heart sank when the staff at our regular breakfast spot Gontran Cherrier told us that the matcha pastries are no longer in season. Whatttttt, how can that be!! Matcha season has barely started! Upset, but still kind of happy with the default chocolate almond croissant.

On a side note, the Shibuya outlet has closed so go to the Shinjuku branch!

Walked past the Potasta ポタスタ outlet at Shinjuku Lumine Est and the tightly packed sandwiches with generous amount of filling caught my eyes. Most are savoury with a lot of greens (e.g. scrambled eggs and tuna) but I wonder how the sweet ones will fare (pumpkin with white chocolate hmm)… I didn’t feel adventurous so the safest dinner choice for me was the wholemeal sandwich with beans and kinako. So fragrant with the roasted soy and the texture of the whole beans was just right, not mushy at all!

You can’t tell from the photo but I bought this cake specially for hanami (sakura viewing) at Ueno Park this afternoon hahaha. Even though the park was so crowded, I felt thankful as I enjoyed one of my all-time favourite cakes. I first tried this chocolate mont blanc from Chocolatier Palet D’or ショコラティエ パレ ド オール with K in Osaka late last year and it’s a no-brainer; if you like chocolate and if you like chestnut, you will like this! I definitely do.

Living in Tokyo, I don’t intend to cook at all so I’m basically thinking of my next meals all the time. Too tired tonight so dinner was just a croissant. But I still have to do it in style — it’s not just any croissant but the chocolate espresso almond croissant from La Boutique de Joel Robuchon which I’ve been eyeing for the longest time. Ok, and also because the bakery is only 5mins walk from my apartment. I heated it up in the microwave (should I be doing that to croissants??) and the chocolate coffee filling inside got all soft and melty. Bliss.
