Two recent tastings from Sadaharu Aoki, one I absolutely loved, the other one not so much. Let’s start with the one I loved, “Symphonie” (€5.40), violet macarons sandwiching earl grey creme brulee, violet mousseline cream, and fresh raspberries. I’m not usually a fan of violet flavors, but the dosage in this cream was light (perfect for me), and combined amazingly with the earl grey flavor and fresh raspberries. Love at first bite and happily savored each mouthful of this.

Then there was Bamboo (€5.50), Aoki’s famed matcha rendition of the classic opéra, consisting of alternating layers of matcha joconde biscuit, chocolate ganache, and matcha buttercream. I had actually tried this already years ago at Aoki’s Taipei branch – didn’t love it then, don’t like it now…which is quite strange, because I usually enjoy matcha and chocolate flavors. Beautiful visually though.

That’s all for today. (What? Just TWO pastries?!)
