sweetsmarche_2

The copy of Sweets Marche is “sweet gummy for adults”.
It’s not really ‘for adult only’, inside of the gummy is very soft and full of scent of orange (near like bergamot flavor), and pulpy orange peels has slightly bitter flavor.

Mille-Feuille from Mille-Feuille Maison

Mille-Feuille_1

I’ve found a new shop of Mille-Feuille at Matsuya-Ginza.
The beautiful shop, Mille-Feuille Maison is specialty for Mille-Feuille that was made by collaboration between Matsuya-Ginza and France.

I chose their limited edition seasonal flavor such as orange and strawberry.
Both Mille-Feuille were very good fancy sweets.

Their latest product is Ispahan flavored drinking yogurt. Ispahan is one of the most famous flavor that PIERRE HERMÉ produced – mixture of the flavors of rose, raspberry, lychee, and rich cream (or white chocolate, mascarpone cheese, frozen yogurt, etc.) – is heavenly good. Especially Ispahan macaron and macaron cake are getting popular.
This drinking yogurt is a cheap and casual line for his creation, easy to get it at the supermarket or convenience stores, but still, it was rich and good.

caffe bene

caffebene_2

After we had Korean lunch, my friend took me to caffe bene. The cafe is cute and looks like ordinary European or US style cafe in Japan. However some of their menus are unique.

caffebene_4

They have “waffle with hottoku (Korean mochi dumplings)” or “patbingsu”.

We had patbingsu with strawberry ice cream and yogurt berry ice cream. The shaved ice was different from Japanese ones, it was strong condensed milk flavor. I think it’s more like Taiwanese or Vietnamese style. She said if we’d like to eat like Korean people, it should be stirred all stuff when it served. It’s different from Japanese style, very interesting!

The shop name is came from one of the famous green apple cultivar. In Japan, this green apple is not popular yet.

I got “Dutch Crumble”, “Classic Rum Raisin” and summer seasonal flavor “coconut pineapple apple pie”. The cafe is still very crowded, so I ordered all of these pies to go.

They produced cute two flavored cupcakes, vanilla and berries.

Both of these are VERY sweet, not as ordinary ones in Japan. I think these were produced as American cupcakes sweetness. (But yes, maybe it’s far from American traditional ones!)
