I recently learned that Échiré butter opened a shop in Hankyu Department store.
Actually they have been in Hankyu Department store since the ending part of 2012! (Gads where have I been?!)
If you remember, Satoshi and I tried their croissant and other buttery baked goods on a trip to Tokyo.
What I wanted to try was this..their Omelette Beurre.
A fluffy cake filled with buttercream!
This was so good. Rich buttercream overflowing in a fluffy yellow cake.
This particular item only comes out at certain times, so check before you go!
We also tried their Brioche Échiré. I didn't read the directions but you are supposed to re-heat this in a toaster. The whole thing puffs up and the butter in the É overflows when heated...no wonder we were a bit disappointed with this one.
Their kouign amann was wonderful, nice caramel on the top and very flaky pastry.
My faves were the omelette, kouign amann and brioche in that order. Satoshi's was the kouign amann, omelette and brioche.
I hope we can try some of the other items that they sell...we'll be back.
