Was supposed to be on my own after the late lunch. I think they got a little worried about me, being in the city alone. His mom, particularly. Reza was asked to accompany me for the rest of the day, while the rest returned to Kofu first. I was initially reluctant to drag him around when he had other more important matters to attend to (i.e. packing all his stuff before he leaves for good), but hey, he was more than willing and I enjoy good company.
He asked me where I intended to go:
“We go to L’Occitane, nak?”
I didn’t even need to suggest it!So we got on the train and stopped at Shibuya. After acquiring a Hoshino Gen CD at Tsutaya (the music store above Starbucks), I was ready to go to the cafe. Excited for some desserts!
Because I don’t normally try something new off the menu when I’ve found something good, I ordered what I had the last time I was there – Creme Brûlée de L’Occitane. Reza, on the other hand decided to try something new – Gateau Marche aux Fruits de la Saison (I assume it’s ‘Cake with Fruits of the Season’ in English).
Both of us settled for ice water, served free. Unlike many of the cafes in KL, they’re not stingy with plain water over there.
From observation, patrons were either couples, a group of ladies or lone female diners.
Was seated at the window again. No rain, hence clear view of the Shibuya crossing!
And they’re here!
Reza’s cake is layered with fruits, topped with cream and served with strawberries, peaches and kiwi. Pretty good for a cake. He seemed happy.
But if you ask me, my creme brûlée is still the bomb. Pure pleasure. Proof? He dived into my dessert more than I dived into his.
I’ll learn how to make this… one fine day.
