Patissieria, Takashimaya Shinjuku (Basement)

Wow, it sure is tiring to give a live feed on this blog, especially since I eat about 4-5 meals a day in this wonderful food city. 

After lunch, we popped by Takashimaya Times Square to check out the food hall, especially since we wanted to go to Yoyogi Park (but unfortunately it was closed - due to the dengue).

Couldn't decide on what to eat - there were so many around! We stumbled upon this place - Patissieria. And it turned out to be a really good choice!!

There were about 100 different types of cakes from all around Japan - many pastry shops send their cakes to this shop. 

We had:

Chocolate ganache - this was pretty good. Rich, chocolate ganache. Pretty good. (8/10)

Raspberry mille-feuille. Great cream, raspberries. Very fragrant; complex and yet very balanced taste. Very pure, as with Japanese desserts. (8.75/10)

Mont Blanc: very intense and robust chestnut flavour. This is how chestnuts are supposed to taste like. Fragrant. Again, very yummy. I had second helpings. Yums. (9/10)

A great discovery, and one that I'll go back again to, the next time I'm in Tokyo. Can't wait to try the other cakes!
