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.

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!
