French Dessert Combination at Gentil (’09/09/25)


Last night, after we visited Sushi Ko in Shizuoka City, we went to Gentil, the oldest French restaurant in town for cheese (report coming next) and dessert.

The chef at Gentil has just changed and the style is different, but very modern in approach as demonstrated by the combination dessert we were served:

From left to right:
-Caramel ice-cream
-Kabocha/Japanese Pumpkin Creme Brulee
-Fresh kaki/persimmon (my first this year!)
-Banana Cake
-Cassis Sorbet

Definitely extravagant!
