Toshi Yoroizuka ♥

Toshi Yorozuika is one of the top 3 pastry chefs in Japan and I heard lines at his cafe 
can get very long. We were lucky to be seated right away on a Thursday afternoon.

Inside the cafe is a small area selling ready-to-eat cakes and pastries

But we were here to experience the dessert bar

After a week of traveling and eating alone in Tokyo, Val and Baby A's company was a breath of
fresh air. Val is a pastry chef and used to operate a bakeshop in Manila before she got married 
and moved to Tokyo. She is also a lover of sweets and we spent the rest of the afternoon 
doing nothing but eat cakes! Isn't it amazing how instagram brings people together? :)

And that is Baby A enjoying (or not) the gazpacho welcome drink

It was a fun experience watching the chefs prepare our desserts right
in front of us. It was like tuning into The Food Network except you
actually get to try the desserts. I couldn't help but notice though
that some of the chefs needed more training. 

Our mille-feuille collapsed right after I took this shot

So they had to take it back and assemble it all over again

Mille-feuille a la Konatsu
Honestly, I think I could have done a better job. :P

The pastry was crisp and flaky, but didn't do anything for me. I couldn't even remember
what was in this dessert.

La Gorgonzola Pistache
Again, forgettable.

I guess I was expecting to be blown away especially after reading
that Chef Toshi Yoroizuka trained for many years in Switzerland,
Belguim, Germany and France. I really wanted to like his creations
 and waited and waited for the wow factor to happen, but it didn't.
Toshi left me rather underwhelmed.

Even Baby A does not recommend!
