ESqUISSE Tokyo : Sweets Selection by Asia's Best Pastry Chef 2017


Some people are good at studying but they may not be good at teaching. Some chefs may be good at doing plated desserts but not petit entremets. I haven't try the plated desserts by Asia's Best Pastry Chef 2017 Chef Narita of 2-Michelin star Esquisse Cinq, but I must say that the individual sweets are underwhelming.

Housed in the ultra posh Tokyu Plaza Ginza, ESquiSSE is an atas French restaurant that has a takeaway booth for its petit cakes and breads. Dine-in is only strictly for plated desserts so takeaway can be troublesome. But fortunately Ginza 6 is smart at playing the marketing game. Shoppers can "dabao" food and enjoy them with a panoramic view of Ginza on the Kiriko Lounge 6F.


We deliberated amongst the small and expensive cakes before settling on 5. Papillote (\800) has the most unique design as it is shaped like a gift made of chocolate. It was difficult to "untie" the present (maybe it wasn't meant to be untied) and the Tiramisu cake hidden inside was mediocre. The Mont Blanc looked promising but the meringue was too hard to crack. The Fraisier was pretty but boring and too sweet. Armagnac caught my interest as very few chefs would openly sit a mousse dome on a mixed nut base in this manner. The bitter caramel mousse pairs beautifully with the orange creameux but I would love the base to be slightly crunchier.

My favorite, turned out to be the dark horse--Riz Au Lait (\650) which is an oriental spin from the classic rice pudding with dust of Matcha. It was the least sweetest of all and I always have a weakness for things with a pleasant, light milky aroma. But for an award winning chef, I would be expecting for creative and bold creations. Currently these lean on the conservative side and I would gladly invest elsewhere.

  2. RESTORATION CAME UPON MY LIFE WITH THE HELP OF FUNDING CIRCLE INC. AFTER BEEN DRAIN BY SCAMS ...

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
