LAITIER レティエ : Probably the Best Soft Serve in Tokyo

"To produce the best soft serve in Tokyo" That's the motto of Aoki san, the owner behind Laitier, a cute blue soft serve shop near Kitasando.

Although I haven't tried (will never be able to try) all the soft serves in Tokyo, I must say that this is one of the better soft serves in town. Meaning milk house in French, Laitier offers soft serve made with premium milk directly delivered from Shizuoka Izu Farm which has won the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) gold award for 19th times. 

The cream has only a dairy fat content of 4.5%, which is 8-12% of average soft serve and the sugar is reduced by 75%! Not sure if it's truly low in calories but hey, at least it did make us feel less guilty indulging in the huge serving of soft serve.

Yes, even though the price is not cheap, I must say the portions here are so generous--the cone felt very heavy but the soft serve was smooth, dense and not too sweet. Inspired by the French dessert Nougat Glacee, the Hachimitsu and three nuts soft serve (780 yen) was truly a nutty delight laced with lavender honey and the orange peel. The caramelized shards of almonds Pistachio and pecan nuts complemented the soft serve so well that I wished they could sell them in a separate bag so I can nibble at home.

The Otoko Brandy Chocolat Soft Serve (780 yen) was obviously targeted at Otoko aka guys but I think this would appeal to any gender especially those who love alcohol because there's Hennesy in the spuit and Nama dark chocolates. The original milk-based soft serve can be upgraded to mascarpone-based for just 50 yen which we did for this Otoko Brandy flavor. It was wonderfully lush in texture with mild Savoury notes not found in the original flavor. 

Best if you can try both types of soft serve base (the original vs. the mascarpone) to do a taste test for yourself. My vote goes to mascarpone.
