dominique saibron

saibron (3) We recently tried some items from Dominique Saibron. His main shop is in Paris and he also has several shops in Tokyo, and this is the first one in Kansai.

Satoshi and I shared the following items for breakfast the other day....Escargot (Pistache), what Americans would call a "snail".

This one was a puff pastry style danish filled with pistachios...I love how even though we ate it a day later there was still a nice sheen to it.

saibron Pied noir chocolat...a soft milk bread filled with mini chocolate chips.

I like that the amount of chocolate wasn't skimped on.

saibron (2) Pain au chocolat...this had just the right amount of chocolate and the pastry was flaky.

All very good.

He also has some chilled items like macaron and flan (what the Japanese call pudding).

And there is also a cafe area but I'll wait until the crowd dies down to check it out.

Looks delicious! I'm glad the pain au chocolat had a good chocolate/pastry ratio - it's disappointing when it's not balanced!

Did you like them? Looks so delicious. I miss bread stores in Japan. Pretty good quality everywhere (I won't say all). Here... there is no good bakery unless we drive a few miles. I wish there is a good bakery in walking distance.

K and S said...

so true K, I hate it when there is not enough chocolate in there.

I did Nami :)

Take care you two.

Lovely pastries, it's always good to find a good bakery which suits your taste!~ I spent years looking for one too and to date, I only have a few that I really like too..and they are barely beyond my five fingers on one hand:P
(Maybe I am just oo picky, I guess)

K and S said...

Picky is good Christy :) especially when it concerns what you are eating!

Take care.

escargot! Too's like how they say lumachine (snails) or girelle (swivels) for cinnamon roll-type pastries in italy.

K and S said...

The Italian names are neat Rowena!

Take care.

Omg, excellent choices!!! I love the pistachio and the chocolate chips, as you might guess I would. Wish we had such elegant pastries too.

K and S said...

But you have such good ramen over there Sheri :)

Take care.

These all look good. I like the pistachio snail especially. ;-)

K and S said...

It was different Deb in Hawaii but delicious :)

Take care.
