Satisfied with recent Soba lunch, I went for a sweet treat journey around Sanjo area. Luckily, there are recently opened dessert bar with a very high promising feedback and I rush to the place with strong excitement.
The place is rather modern with cake showcase at the front and dessert bar inside which seems to be luxurious and comfortable. I ordered one cake and their recommend menu which contain Matcha since Kyoto are famous for and then take the seat as they prepare my dessert.
The vert [Matcha + Pistachio + Tonka beans + Chocolate + Citrus junos]
Matcha glass dessert. Pour with chocolate sauce.
At first, the staff prepare a small bowl with impressive decoration of sweet which seems like a carefully decorated little garden. Then they pour warm chocolate sauce in top of the bowl as the chocolate starts melting and create another view of harmony between chocolate sauce and lower Matcha garden.
As I glance through every detail, I realized that this dessert has been carefully refined and executed to the perfection. Personally, I do not classify any dessert as perfect however, this one clearly deserved that title. Starting with a tender kick of Yuzu to start your appetite. Then sweetness of Matcha and strong flavor of chocolate blend in with crispy Pistachio and Tonka beans. Then *Poof* everything just finished just like your favorite song when you hear it the first time.
I also ordered a cake. The texture was pretty good however, The Vert was just insanely amazing. Not your day today little cake.
That’s all for my review. Personally, I would strongly recommend this place for dessert lover. I am seriously planning to subscribe myself as a Matcha lover after I tasted the Vert. See you next later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊
