Check Out This Intricate Parfait From Tokyo's 'Momobukuro!'

Ikebukuro

In June of 2019, a parfait-specialty store called 'Momobukuro' opened in Tokyo's Ikebukuro. The most popular item here is an intricate sunflower-themed parfait that is both beautiful and delicious. Luckily, the store is open until midnight or later, which makes it the perfect place to get a midnight snack after a night of play in Ikebukuro.

’Sunflower's Promise’ ¥1,600
'Momobukuro' is a night parfait cafe located just 3 minutes from Ikebukuro station, one of Tokyo's centers for nightlife. The cafe's concept is to provide refreshing parfaits that aren't overly sweet and are perfect for eating after a night of drinking.

The parfaits served are quite intricate and luxurious, and definitely worthy of an Instagram post!

The most popular parfait on the menu is the 'Sunflower's Promise'(ひまわりの約束), served in an impressive glass with sunflower-shaped gelatin stuck to the side.

The glass is topped with a crispy chiffon cake rusk, decorated with black crumble, mint leaves, celery, orange confiture, and a chocolate ladybug. It's a well-balanced and delicious combination of sweet, tart, and bitter flavors that is a delight to eat.

The Creation Process

First, sunflower-shaped gelatin and kiwi gelatin are stuck to the glass. The bottom is then filled with various interesting ingredients, including anise and rosemary-sauteed pineapple and elderflower mousse.

On top of that, a scoop of bittersweet cellary-flavored gelato is topped with another scoop of Hokkaido milk vanilla ice cream.

This is topped with a miniature nest made from crunchy, super-thin noodles. The whole thing is assembled quite rapidly so that the ice cream and gelato don't melt.

The parfait is finished off with the aforementioned rusk, and a sunflower made from meringue with a candy stem is stuck into the top of the nest. The finished parfait is truly magnificent!

All of the Parfaits are Seasonal!
