As I said before I suddenly found myself with a whole free day, a rare luxury, and decided it was grand time I paid a visit to one of my old favourite cake shop/cafes in Shizuoka!
Rouge et Piquant is a confectionery shop which has been making its name since 2004 and certainly deserves its ever growing popularity!
This time I sampled one of three seasonal dessert plates: Rouge (red) red berries cake and assortment.
Definitely my favourite dessert, both fulfilling and so scrumptious!
I’m a bit of a babarian when it comes to eat dessert, and when it comes to the order, I just follow my instinct.
Therefore I started with the ice-cream part:
On an artistically shaped Feuillantine: Meringue, Strawberry ice-cream, Raspberry Sherbet and Apple Sherbet enhanced by pieces of fresh mango and a mini strawberry! That alone would be enough to justify the visit!
Red Fruit Tart:
On a small pate sucree tart filled with a beaten mix of Sour cream, fresh cream and a little lemon juice (concealing one fresh raspberry in the middle) : Cassis/Blackcurrant, Groseilles/Redcurrant, Raspberries, Cut apple and strawberry! A well full of little marvels!
Don’t forget there are more to savour: Blanc (white): Short Cake and Milk Ice Cream Assortment. Chocolat: Chocolat mousse and Caramel Ice Cream + Chocolate Sauce. Assortment (800 yen).
I would also recommend the Entremets glaces at 600 yen (Profiterolle or Mille-Feuille).
Also gateau at 500 yen, Ice Cream at 500 yen. Very good teas and coffes (10 varieties).
Take out homemade biscuits (7 kinds). Birthday cakes on order.
Entirely non-smoking place!
