What we love…
- There's nothing better after a savory bowl of ramen than a delicate, sweet pastry—and where better to indulge in said pastry than the famous Pierre Hermé?
- The Japanese know a thing or two about sweets, and they clearly have a fascination with French pastries. Most of the famous pastry shops you can find in Paris can also be found (usually in several locations) around Tokyo, which is just one more reason we love this city. Since the Japanese also have a reputation for excellence when it comes to delicate food preparation, so that means if you close your eyes and bite into a macaron in Tokyo, you'll swear, just for a second, that you're in Paris.
- Pierre Hermé happens to be one of the masters of pastry, and is known throughout the world for creating macarons that will knock your socks off. Chocolate is also one of the shops specialties, and so if you're a chocoholic you'll want to check out the counter with a range of truffles and chocolates infused with creative flavors.
- Visit the shop located in the La Porte Aoyama (5-51-8 Jingumae Shibuya), to experience the Pierre Hermé Bar Chocolat, a popular cafe where you can indulge in some of the thickest hot chocolate in town. The menu at Bar Chocolat heavily focuses on complex chocolate desserts, but you'll also find some of the regular pastry selection there as well.
