Pierre Herme Paris ~Tokyo~

19 Aug

In the heart of Tokyo Aoyama, there’s a very elegant and nice patisserie called Pierre Herme Paris. Pierre Herme has now several branches in Tokyo, but this was the first branch that opened in Japan in the winter of 2005. It is a two-storey building with a boutique on the 1st floor and salon/bar chocolat on the 2nd floor where you can overview the city of Aoyama, a very trendy and fashionable city between Shibuya and Omotesando. My university campus is just right opposite this boutique! Oh~ I wish they came a bit earlier when I was still in school, haha…  (but it’s a little too pricey for students)

Anyway, my husband and I decided to have a cup of tea there while my mother was baby sitting Hanae taking a nap in the stroller. Yeay!

Pierre Herme is famous for his Rose flavor cakes and macaron called Ispahan and so I ordered St. Honore Ispahan with Ispahan tea. I am always fascinated by this beautiful form of St. Honore.

Another cake I wanted to have was tart au vanille but unfortunately it was not the season so instead I ordered Mille Feiulle. I still remember when I had his first Mille Feiulle about 5 years ago and was overwhelmed by it. Since then I’ve never encountered anything better than that (although the one in Angelina @ Paris was pretty good), and it didn’t betray my expectation this time again!

I truly recommend this cake if you happen to drop by Pierre Herme boutique. His cakes are all quite big in size so it’s enough for two people to share.

The showcase was full of RIKA chan barbie doll. It was funny so I took a couple of photos.

    Wow! Those cakes are so elegant and so classy. And they look so lip smacking good! I will certainly put this on my list of places to visit when we get a chance to travel to Tokyo.
