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.

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 very fond memories of Shake Shack. When K and I went to Tokyo in April last year, Shake Shack Ebisu had just opened for a couple of days and there was a huge hype (= long queue) as usual with the Japanese. We dragged our luggage over for our first meal after landing and spent almost S$80 on fast food! To be fair, we ordered a lot so the cost was kind of justifiable — 2 burgers, 2 milkshakes, 1 cheese fries, 3 concrete sundaes. Satisfaction level was 100%.

Fast forward one year. This time I met my visiting Matchaya crew member and I didn’t go loco with ordering. A cheesy ‘Shroom Burger and black sesame milkshake (can be stronger in goma flavour but what a brilliant idea!) later, I left feeling 100% satisfied too.

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.

Hello uni omelette!! Went to Mercer Brunch just for that but ended up with two same-same-but-different plates on the table, score. Because there’s uni, and there’s lobster. The latter has a reddish tinge from the fresh tomato lobster cream sauce and I like the slight sweetness. The one with uni has a more briny flavour so it really depends on personal preference. Worth a try but pity that the texture is not as fluffy as La Mère Poulard’s!

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.
