Dean and Deluca : Good Green Festa

May 2014 had been a busy month...of eating green stuff. Like most shops elsewhere that are coming up with green items (May is the month of "shin ryoku" aka New Green), Dean & Deluca has also come up with Green Bakery theme where all the baked items contained some green ingredients.

The first item that catches my eye is of course, the military green matcha scone drizzled sparingly with green tea icing sugar. 
The first few bites were rather disenchanting as the taste was bland. But after a while, the bitterness starts to emanate and sings along with the dark chocolate. It's just as tasty as the chocolate scone during earlier visit. 
The Giant Pistachio Roll looks too yummy to be missed. Similar to a cinnamon roll, the interior is slathered with filling of strawberry jam. The Pistachio cream was very concentrated in sweetness but proportionate to the thickness of the chunky plain brioche. 
Kiwi & Chardonnay Pancake, Asparagus Tartine, Pistachio Brioche 
This Blueberry Melon Pan in bright purple stood in stark contrast to the green items 
Peanut Butter and Jelly Roll
D and D's take on gheclassic American brown bag lunch (or breakfast) is so much than the pistachio because the interior is smeared with lots of unevenly grinded salted peanuts and peanut paste. Crunchy, salty and sweet, this is an all-round indulgent comfort food.

  1. Hi! Omg I love your blog. I've been following your Instagram account for quite a while as I'm a hopeless sucker for matcha sweets and desserts as well. (My account is solely on matcha desserts!) I really enjoy reading your blog posts and your food critiques are very well written. I'm sooo envious of your opportunities to travel around Tokyo and taste these amazing desserts! I'm from Hong Kong, and I'm not sure if you've heard of this place called Via Tokyo, but they have literally one of the best matcha soft serves I've ever had. You should definitely check it out if you ever visit Hong Kong! :)

    1. Hi Natalie,
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment. It brightened my day!! Haha, you don't have to be envious about this cos Hong Kong has plenty plenty of good food which I haven't had a chance to try at all. I should be the one envying! Hehe... I wish I could travel around Tokyo but I was staying there so I tried to maximise my time searching for good food. Yeps, I have heard about Via Tokyo as its pictures on instagram have been making me drool. I will definitely try that place when I go Hong Kong. And if I go Hong Kong one day, I would really wish to seek your advice on where to go :D

  2. I would love to! Feel free to reach me through my Instagram 'matchabites' :) have fun in your food adventures!
