Parfaiteria beL: Suberb Hokkaido Parfaits Served In Tokyo


There is a trend that started in Hokkaido for which parfaits, not ramen, are eaten after a night out drinking. The instigator of this trend is said to be Parfaiteria beL, and it has now a location in Tokyo. See what their parfait looks like!

Feel free to follow favy!

Parfaiteria beL is open until 2 AM

This is one of the few ice cream shops in Tokyo that is open this late! The idea is to have people enjoying the icy treat after they were out drinking. Apparently, in Hokkaido where the store originates, people wait in line in the middle of the night to have their "shime-parfait" (after-drinking parfait).

Parfaiteria beL is located at just a 2-minute walk from the bustling Shibuya Station in downtown Tokyo.
There are some tables and some counter seats so you'll see both people going there in groups or alone. It tends to get crowded after 9 PM.

The late-night parfait

They have on the menu seven kinds available at all time and some of them are guaranteed to be seasonal specialties. Go there every other month and you're guaranteed to see something new on the menu! We tried the March seasonal special, which was this beautiful strawberry and rosemary parfait.
The parfait is made with beautiful large-sized strawberries and plenty of them! You can see that a large part of the parfait is made of fruits, so it is not so heavy. As a late-night snack, you won't feel too guilty.

Quality over quantity

Look how beautiful this is! The mousse is called crème d'ange and is a light cheese-based one. You'll find rosemary leaves, champagne jelée, strawberry sorbet, pieces of rusk and black cookie crumble as well.
And standing on top of it all is a perfectly placed small raspberry and coconut macaron! This is what a high-end parfait is supposed to look like. It's a bit pricey at ¥1,600 but it's well-worth every yen.
This parfait isn't just about looks either. You can tell that every ingredient is of good quality too. The flavours and the different textures of the ingredients blend together so well.

If you want one of the best fruit parfaits in Tokyo, Parfaiteria beL is highly recommendable! If you want to avoid the crowds try going there from 5-9 PM.
