Story & Recommendation
Enjoy artisanal French desserts at Desserts La Flamme Bleue in downtown Kyoto
In downtown Kyoto, you can find a little restaurant which stands out in how blue it looks from outside. The wooden sign of the restaurant has the following words written on it: “Desserts La Flamme Bleue,” and as you can probably already guess, it specializes in desserts. In fact, this restaurant which only seats eight only serves desserts. At this restaurant, the appetizer is a dessert, but so is the main, and of course the dessert you’re served at the end. The price of your “meal” is decided by what main dish (dessert) you get. I’m sure that these French desserts are going to leave you feeling extra satisfied in Kyoto!

Grand Desserts: Éclipse
Grand Desserts: Éclipse / ¥1,800 (+tax)
The price of the course is decided by the main, and this time we chose the seasonal Éclipse as we just couldn’t resist this work of art which uses chocolate by the famous French chocolate manufacturer Valrhona. This dessert had caramelized pears topped with crumbled gâteau au chocolat and vanilla ice cream. You also have redcurrants to balance the sweetness in this dish. The harmony of these ingredients is intensified by the jellified chocolate you have with the dish. The menu at Desserts La Flamme Bleue changes usually every two months so look at their homepage for the latest information.

Amuse Desserts: Walnut custard crème brûlée
Amuse Desserts: Walnut custard crème brûlée
The custard used to make this crème brûlée is thick, sweet, and has a strong taste of vanilla. The pieces walnut and apple (or should we say la pomme) found inside the crème brûlée make the texture of it so much more interesting. *Note that this dish served as an appetizer changes seasonally and is not always crème brûlée.

Mignardises
Mignardises
Mignardises, also known as Petit Four, are tiny pastries enjoyed after desserts. No matter whether you look at the miniature macaron, the little cut of Castella cake, or the small chocolate coated hazelnut, they’re all works of art. In fact, they look so beautiful it’s almost a shame to eat them.
4Let's Try!
Sparkling wine
Sparkling wine / ¥900 (+tax)
You can drink coffee or tea too, but my choice was sparkling wine. I had this beautiful Moldovan Cricova Brut which with its yellow-whitish color and dry taste brought tears of joy to my eyes. The dryness of it went nicely with the sweet desserts; it especially brought out interesting notes from the already high-quality chocolate Desserts La Flamme Bleue uses.
