It’s been over two years since Japanese pastry chef Morihide Yoshida opened his shop in Paris, and it seems like he’s doing quite well. The pastry display is as good-looking as ever – his chaussons aux pommes are especially gorgeous – making it really hard not to leave this place with a little more than originally planned. Here are some recent tastings.

“Érable Caramélisé” (€5.80), a recent addition to Mori Yoshida’s pastry display, is a tart composed of maple syrup caramel cream, maple syrup chocolate mousse, hazelnut biscuit, and hazelnut nougatine. It’s a simple and elegant design perfectly assembled together, though the flavor isn’t an instant hit with me.

Gâteaux au chocolat (€4), chocolate cake topped with Chantilly cream, simple and delicious.

Baba Tropique (€5.60), baba with mango cream, Chantilly cream, fresh mangoes, and coconut syrup. Summery and tropical, like.

Paris-Brest Citron (€5.50), hazelnut-studded choux pastries sandwiching almond hazelnut cream flavored with lemon, and a thin layer of hazelnut praline. A lovely Paris-Brest, though I couldn’t really taste the lemon in the cream.

Tartelette a la Rhubarbe (€5.60), puff pastry tart shell filled with rhubarb cream and rhubarb compote. The rhubarb flavor from the compote is strong and acidic, not unpleasantly as it’s balanced by the soothing sweet cream underneath. The intensity of this will for sure delight rhubarb lovers.

Croissant Pudding (€3.80), like bread pudding, except with croissants. A delicious way to get rid of old croissants.

That’s it for now, though I’m sure it won’t be long before I visit this place again.
