For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I highly recommend the 'Banana mille-feuille with -196℃ chocolate ice cream'. It was the first time for me to see the process of making the ice cream. A steamed spreading out from the bowl looks like hot, but actually it was -196℃. Please take the movie and share with your friend.
Very authentic cafe and an ideal place for chocolate lovers! I'd like to take my friends from outside Kyoto to this cafe as it is a renovation of Kyoto's traditional town house (machiya). My recommendation is the chocolate fondue. It is very pleasing with the eyes and you can enjoy a variety of tastes by dipping fruits and sweets into quality chocolate source.
Banana mille-feulle with -196℃ chocolate ice cream
1Must Eat !
Banana mille-feuille with -196℃ chocolate ice cream / 1,620 yen
The mille-feuille is cooked after every order to keep crispy texture of a pie.
The harmony of banana custard, fresh sliced banana, chocolate sauce and maple syrup is outstanding! The chocolate ice cream served together is prepared with liquid nitrogen in front of the guests by a pastry chef. It is almost like a performance of magic or circus!
Chocolate fondue
2Must Eat !
Chocolate fondue / 3,240 yen for two
At first, you must pay attention to how beautiful they look on the plate when served. It will satisfy your eyes and palates as well. At the center of the plate, a chocolate sauce is warmed up by a candle underneath. Please dip some fruits, cakes or other sweets into the chocolate sauce, as you want.
B.L.T sandwich
3Let's Try !
B.L.T sandwich / 1,080 yen
A thick bacon, lettuce and tomato are sandwiched between crispy bread. An original aurora sauce is significant ! Pickles are served together.
Hot chocolate ‘Venezuela’
4Let's Try !
Hot chocolate ‘Venezuela’ / 864 yen
It is a hot chocolate drink with Venezuelan 72% cacao content coverture chocolate, with smooth milk foam on the top. You can either enjoy a spoonful of the coverture by themselves or melt it in the drink.
