French Desserts at Pissenlit French Restaurant in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3546

For all its French concept I very much doubt you will find such a dessert in France! See below.

Service: Excellent and very friendly.
Facilities: Great cleanliness overall. Superb washroom (mouthwash and toothpicks provided!)!
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive, very good value.
Strong points: Interesting wine list. Great use of local products, especially organic vegetables and Shizuoka-bred meat and caught fish. Very inventive French gastronomy.

I have always had a sweet tooth and a weakness for desserts although I do not appreciate over sweet dishes. I’m always looking for something more natural combining inventiveness with classical concepts.
I Always make a point to order desserts at Pissenlit French Restaurant in shizuoka City, Aoi Ku, as Chef Toru Arima/有馬亨さん is always bound to come up with unexpected and sublime desserts which will not tax your health!
Here is a succinct selection of what I \had the pleasure to enjoy recently!

SN3O3282

This two-tier dessert was created with “croquignolles”, both very soft and crisp biscuits made with plenty of egg whites.

SN3O3283

Home-made ice creams, caramel at bottom and Darjheling Te in between with seasonal fruits!

SN3O3285

It was certainly a rare pleasure to open the whole and admire it before devouring it!

SN3O3544

here is another example of the same cake with strawberry ice cream.
The sauces are custard and raspberry!

SN3O3545

As I said above I very much doubt you will find this concept back in France?
Now, what is this blanc-manger made of?

SN3O3546

Black sesame (no pun intended!) with black sesame and pear sorbets, and decorated with custard and raspberry sauces!

SN3O4318

Although it does look very familiar the concept probably doesn’t exist in France either!

SN3O4320

The mousse cake is made with kinako/dry soy bean powder!

SN3O4319

The ice-cream is also made with kinako and local brown cane sugar!
Sorry for the blurry pic. I had to hurry before it melted away!

Looking for more! LOL
