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!

Even though Tokyo has endless dessert choices, I’m missing Frankie & Jo’s plant-based ice cream very much. Happy to report that I found a good substitute in Kippy’s Coco-Cream キッピーズ ココクリーム! They do vegan coconut based ice cream and because I kid myself that it’s healthy, I ended up with triple scoops of double dark chocolate, matcha and mocha. Now that Tokyo is heating up, I need to come here more often! #excuses

Tip #101 for LDR: Facetime your partner and eat ice cream together at the same time. It’s one of the small things we do and it’s so much fun. While K finished a whole tub of Haagen Dazs green tea (proud of him!!), I decided on something healthier. For 80 calories, this Sunao chocolate soy ice cream was very satisfying.

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

This Tsujiri 辻利 is not the same Tsujiri in Singapore. A long established teahouse in Uji, it has opened a take-away outlet at the newest chi-chi mall in Tokyo — Ginza Six. An exclusive to said mall, the “extra rich” matcha soft serve is expectedly good but I’m one of those annoying customers who want a stronger dose of matcha ha.

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).

Cassis in mont blanc? I tried one such combination from Patisserie Jun Ujita パティスリー ジュンウジタ and it was surprisingly good. Slightly tart berry flavour, sweet chestnut puree, moist almond frangipane-ish base, sweet tooth satisfied! Worth trying if you see his cakes popping up at Shinjuku Takashimaya food hall; otherwise his main patisserie is quite far out of the main Tokyo area and I’m not in a hurry to head there.
