It is Girl's Day today. I want to share with you some sweets we recently enjoyed.
Awhile back, I read about Patisserie Hare (ha-ray) on a Japanese blog.
It is near where we live, but without a car, it is quite out of the way.
Since Satoshi had the day off last Thursday, we decided to check out the shop. From where we were at the time, it was a good 20 minute walk (one way).
I was surprised that Satoshi chose this cute bear. It was a tart crust with some cake, raspberry puree, custard cream and cocoa powder.
I chose this caramel slice. Caramel cream, caramelized pecans, crispies and chocolate. This was rich and good!
Of course, we didn't walk over there just for two desserts, we also chose two more.
I chose the Uji Daifuku. A slice of cake topped with matcha (green tea) cream gelatin, topped with cream, black beans and mochi (rice cake).
Satoshi chose the sesame blanc manger. A slice of roll cake covered with a sesame cream sauce topped with sweet bean paste and shiratama (rice flour dumpling).
Though a little out of the way, I'm glad we got to try their sweets. They were all delicious!
Days off varies : take out only
Happy Girl's Day!
