Tokyo Special Journey: Patisserie & Chocolate

During last weekend, 21st - 23rd January 2011, I had a chance to visit Tokyo again as one of my beloved friend was getting married. I then decided to spend some of my free time visited a few patisseries. 

I began with Dalloyau @ Ginza. The atmosphere of this shop of easy but cozy with a complement of great services. However, it lacks of English speaker which is typical for Japan.

I, myself, had Pêche Bel Armand for my afternoon dessert (without tea T__T, why not?). It was a parfait with a combination between raspberry sorbet, peach, whipped cream, and meringue sticks. It was beautifully decorated. Meringue was not too sweet. Peach was well poached and glazed: it was not too soft. Whipped cream was a little sweet which went perfectly with sour taste of raspberry sorbet (7/10).\

I then walked to the nearby chocolate shop, Pierre Marcolini @ Ginza. Pierre Marcolini, originated from Brussels, has always been my most favourite chocolate connoisseur. Personally, I must say chocolate from Pierre Marcolini is even tastier than that of La Maison du Chocolat.
On the ground floor of the shop, there are takeaway counter and ice-cream counter. From first floor, there are seats available for those who wish to eat in. The decor is again comtemporary with dimmed light.

Next was Pierre Herme @ Ikebukuro, in which I accidentally walked pass by. I bought some macaron in a beautiful red box. As expected, simply wonderful but still prefer Laduree.
