Bergamot orange chocolate mousse and orange bavarois. House blend tea.
Guayaquil(bitter chocolate cake). Tarte aux chocolat(bitter chocolate tart).
This branch is inside Tokyo Midtown which was very busy on a Saturday and we waited for more than half an hour for the seats.
ロンシャン ショコラ ノワール（軽いメレンゲとショコラムースをアーモンド入り ビターチョコレートでコーティング）、￥６３０。
Chocolat framboise – Chocolate cake with raspberry.
Longchamps Chocolat Noir – Light meringue and chocolate mousse cake with almond and bitter chocolate coating.
This branch is inside Isetan Shinjuku. About 20 mins of queuing for seats on a Saturday.
I like all the cakes except Guayaquil and Tarte aux chocolat which I wish had richer chocolate taste. The Earl Grey tea costs 945yen a pot but it is very diluted, and the house blend tea tasted weird… Was planning to buy the marron confit to take home but the queue for take-out(separate queue for take-out and eat-in) is very long so I just tried one piece inside the cafe.
Menu: 1, 2.
I also bought Seigle auvergnat (orange) from Be and it is absolutely delicious! It has stores in Midtown and Isetan Shinjuku, both are on the same floor as Jean-Paul Hévin.
Hey I remember this chocolatier in Paris, though I only brought chocolates there…there weren’t sit-in space for cakes. The tea is jus insanely expensive. The cakes looks so fine and almost toy-like perfect.
Yeah the one in Paris doesn’t have sit in area, if want to try the cake have to do take out. THe cake looks really good though! I think Jean Paul hevin just open in HK too, right?
So there were cakes in the chocolatier in Paris? I used to think the cakes are created and made by Japanese staff. The sit-in area in both locations are really tiny and not someplace to relax. Yeah I saw in some blog(the same blog you saw? ^^;;) that JPH opened in HK! So there is no need to go to JPH in Japan anymore – can save my calorie quota/money for other cake shops!
