Yokohama Francais green tea Mille Feuille. The (cute) girl at Henri charpentier(that’s not why I bought so many items from Henri) recommended this to me, it did not disappoint. Each layer of the mille feuille was distinct and unbelievably crisp, the green tea flavor was assertive
Jean Paul Hevin’s dark chocolate ganache and chocolate macaron. A friend of mine used to work at JPH and she bought these for me, insisting that I have to try their macaron. The buttercream had an amazing texture, almost like a whipped chocolate custard, not dense at all.
Green tea biscuits, these were from Kyoto
Kyo Hayashiya’s green tea parfait. I dont think this was for one person, but I did my best
This isn’t a sweet dish, but this fried chicken became a standard snack after stumbling out of bars at 2am in Sancha. Readily available at all convenience stores, it was oily, spicy, piping hot, all the pre-requisites for drunk food
The last dish is from a Kushiyage or Kushikatsu bar in Sancha, the one I frequented the most when I was there. It is basically a tiny bar, run by one guy, that serves breaded and deep fried everything- cheese, asparagus and ham, okra(lady’s finger) and loads more; one thing that they didn’t have was a sweet dish, so our group(a Singaporean, American and Canadian) decided to bring our Gaijin ideas to this place. We popped into the nearest convenience store and bought 2 Mars bars, instructing the bar owner to freeze and fry it. These tiny nuggets were passed around the bar, hilarity and amusement ensued, everyone loved it, although this might have something to do with the fact that everyone was drunk.
