FROM JAPAN TO AVENUE DE BRETEUIL
From Japan to the 7th arrondissement, it seems like Mori Yoshida is able to fit anywhere. His style is all about precision and generosity. We’ve tried a few of his creations and loved them all. In the morning, he also sells viennoiseries including croissants and pains au chocolat which are supposed to be delicious. But this is none of our business today, we came for the pastries.
As soon as you enter the shop, one gets a really zen feeling like in not other Parisian pastry shop. We took with us a Beige and a Polonaise, each priced at €5.50. It doesn’t seem too much considering other similar pastries in Paris.
DEGUSTATION TIME: A BEIGE AND A POLONAISE
The Beige is made of a chocolate layer, praliné, orange ganache and a lime cream on top. The combination of the citrusy tanginess and the richness of the chocolate makes up for a wonderful flavor balance.
The Polonaise was not on the same level of greatness but still made a good impression on us. The cake is soaked (just like a baba) and it’s coated with a rich custard cream which incorporated candied fruits and a layer hazelnut meringue.
Don’t hesitate too much and stop by Avenue de Breteuil if you want to impress your friends with the cakes of this Japanese rising star pastry chef.
