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!

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.

I have been stalking K-Vincent website religiously for a couple of weeks now because they are one of the most elusive patisseries I know of! That’s because they only open for business a few days per month and will release opening dates randomly. I finally managed to drop by on one such rare occasion (yay!), queued for almost an hour (nay!), and snagged three cakes — Chocolate Amer, Chocolate Mille-feuille, and the biggest Mont Blanc ever. All are good though not outstanding, handmade and rustic in looks (not super refined), and I guess this is a valuable lesson of diminishing returns as my eyes are way bigger than my stomach and I couldn’t finish them all, sob.

Cityshop Deli is my favourite salad shop in Tokyo but now I’ve found a close second at PULP Deli & Cafe パルプ デリ&カフェ! Newly opened at Shibuya Cast (take exit 13 from Shibuya train station), it offers a DIY custom deli plate which adds a lot of points for fussy eaters like me. Their broccoli with ricotta cheese is the best and I’m going to have two servings of that next time!

Mont St Clair モンサンクレール is one of the top rated patisseries in Tokyo and it’s easy to see (or rather, taste) why. Other than Hidemi Sugino (my favourite place for mousse cakes), Mont St Clair’s cake is one of the lightest I’ve ever had. This one has both chocolate and vanilla cream, topped off with a crunchy brûléed layer. Now I’m curious about the other cakes this place has to offer…

Hey, if it’s good enough for the Spanish royal family, it’s certainly good enough for me! Cacao Sampaka is the appointed royal chocolate supplier in Spain and カカオ サンパカ at Marunouchi Brick Square is their first boutique store in Japan. I’ve got no one to share the chocolates with (waiting for K!!) so only the soft serve is doable for now. The blend is obviously quite different from Le Chocolat De H’s and I’ll need to try both side by side to pick a favourite ha.

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.
