I am very happy to continue my series of posts about my favorite spots in Tokyo - most of them are in the suburbs, off the beaten tracks and always owned or run by very super friendly people! Let me introduce you to Pâtisserie R today, a lovely pâtisserie located in my neighborhood and just 5mins walk from Jiyugaoka.
Ryoko Tsuji, chef pâtissière and owner has learnt the secrets of the trade in Paris and she creates delicious sweets - my favorite being her choux-à-la-crème, so unbelievably smooth and creamy. It's also one of the only places I know here who is selling les mignardises, which are mini-versions of the full size sweets (top shelf in the photos below). As they are perfect for tea, purchase an assortment of 10 to 12 mignardises to surprise your guests!
