I have a sweet tooth. The great fondness for dessert prompts me to visit anywhere that serves sweet delights. It doesn’t matter if they are bakery chains of large corporate, six-star hotels or unknown small shops.Hotels guarantee quality while chain stores pay attention to packaging.

Today, I luckily encounter a pastry store owned by French people. It only sells tarts. The scale is small and the location is not easily accessible. To my surprise, the food quality is comparable to famous brand name. As far as I know, all ingredients are imported from France, except for the green tea powder which is from Japan. This selection reflects owner’s meticulousness and passion for baking.
Fresh Lime Tarte
The crust is crispy and has strong incense of butter. The white chocolate mousse is embellished with shredded lime peel since their tastes balance each other. Sourness of lime neutralises chocolate’s sweetness. The whole thing tastes refreshing.
Sesame Matcha Tarte
Green tea powder originated from Japan is especially bitter-sweet, which makes it perfect for dessert. The black sesame mousse is thick and has rich nutty hint of sesame flavour. Usually, red beans are matcha’s best friend. I can’t believe that sesame could break the tradition and match as fine. The crossover of Japanese and France culture in baking does have magic!
Raspberry Chocolate Tarte
Chocolate from the famous French brand Varlhona is specially chosen. No wonder the creamy and smooth mousse has such strong choco scent. The chef is so creative that he, instead of paving the surface with assorted fruits, makes raspberry into jam as fillers. The sour raspberries and chocolate mousse remix and fuse as a whole. I feel satisfied enjoying it.
Pieces of tarts captive customers’ heart without fancy outlook nor package. This is not an easy accomplishment.
