My second night in Tokyo, I met a good friend from college who now works in Tokyo. We ate dinner at a vegetable based izakaya in Shinjuku that was delicious. (I tried to go again at a different location but it was completely reserved) After dessert at a nearby cafe, I needed to look for a bakery to buy breakfast for my dad and I. I first planned to try  Joël Robuchon but my friend and I couldn’t find it for some reason! So I went to my second choice Gontran Cherrier which was obviously placed in front of Shinjuku station (east exit).

An almond croissant for my dad, a matcha white chocolate scone for me, and a mont blanc croissant to share. The scone had the perfect crispy outside but soft inside texture. The croissant was pretty good too. The only thing with the mont blanc croissant was that the chestnut paste was at the bottom with nothing near the top. Still a delicious bakery. I went around closing time so most of the goods were gone but it looked like they offered many kinds of breads and pastries! They have a couple locations of this bakery in Seoul too so I’m looking forward to trying it soon.


東京の二日目は大学時代の友達と夜ごはんを食べに行きました。新宿駅近くの野菜中心居酒屋に行きました。美味しくて、みかん酒もありました!(また自由が丘店舗に行こうとしたが予約で満席でした。)ルミネのカフェでデザートを食べ終えたら、お父さんと私の朝ごはんを買うためパン屋を探しに行きました。ジョエル・ロブションに行きたかったけど、友達と探しても全然見つからず2番目のゴントランシェリエに行きました。

お父さんにアーモンドクロワッサン。私は抹茶ホワイトチョコスコーン。モンブランクロワッサンをシェア。スコーンは甘すぎず、外側がサクサクで中が柔らかめのいい食感でした。クロワッサンも悪くなかった。ただモンブランクロワッサンの栗ペーストは全部下にあり、巻いた形が少し食べずらかった。私は閉店間近に寄ったので、商品はほとんど残ってなかったが、色んなパンを置いてそうです。ソウルにもいくつか店舗があるので、ここのも試してみよう。
