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.

Ok I wasn’t intending to eat cakes today (it’s eat-clean Monday!) but I had to go to the bank in Shinjuku and you know, Isetan with the Mont St Clair pop-up booth is so near. Couldn’t resist sugar, I’m weak like that haha. This time I found a stunning gem in the orange mont blanc cake! Oh my, so glad I tried this (the guy before me bought the last one yesterday so this is fate!!), the balance between chestnut and citrusy orange is incredibly delicate. There’s also a hazelnut cake in the background but it pales in comparison because chestnut wins anytime!

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…

I read some IG/online raves over this matcha chocolate cake from Jean-Paul Hévin but… it’s so underwhelming.
