malebranche

On our visit to Kyoto was took the train to Kitayama for a look around the more historic area. Malebranche, one of Kyoto’s best known pastry shops, was born here in 1982.

Koji took this awesome shot of a tree they’d constructed out of Okoicha Langue de Chat – beautiful biscuits made of chocolate and Shirakawa tea. Malebranche is another great example of how japanese flavors/packaging aesthetics come together with the more western idea of sweets.
