Chez Shibata lured me back with their irresistibly beautiful cakes. Since my previous post, I have tried a few more of their creations:

A specialty of the Chez Shibata Shanghai branch, La Venus (46 RMB), is Araguani 72% chocolate mousse enveloping vanilla bavarois, crispy chocolate pearls, and marinated cherries. The whole thing is then sprayed with red finishing.

The specialty dessert from Chez Shibata Nagoya branch, the Éclair au Caramel Beurre Salé (28 RMB), is an elongated puff pastry filled with caramel cream, brushed with a glistening caramel glaze, and topped with three pieces of Philippe Olivier butter and a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt.

The tarte au citron (25 RMB) is a nice balance of sweet and sour, with a thick and creamy texture. I recommend sharing this among two people as the flavor is very intense.

The Tarte au Chocolat (30 RMB) is a three-tiered chocolate decadence. The top layer is a chewy chocolate/caramel/nuts mixture, the second layer a dark chocolate glaze, and the bottom layer a thick chocolate pate. An obvious choice for the chocolate lovers.

Sugar overload.
