The Art of Parfait-ing


Presentation is definitely a key point in every Japanese cuisine. When I first saw this so called Parfait in some of the Japanese restaurant, my tummy got immediately curious.  I need to experience some of these treats and fortunately T love parfait too. Some of the artsy parfait that I and T tried so far.


Mango Flavored Parfait.

We found this at the top of HEP 5  Osaka. It was huge so T and I decided to just share it.


Choco Parfait with Autumn Fruit and Strawberry.


A mix ice cream parfait.

There are more varieties and I am just trying to control myself not to try them all 🙂 .

Parfait can be found everywhere in Japan.  Some are seasonal and some are just crazily arranged. Another one thing to try when you visit Japan 🙂

  1. Most definitely contenders for a place in an art gallery. I would agree that the enjoyment of food is at least fifty percent presentation; the rest is aroma, taste, and texture. Your pictures seem to have it all. Brilliant. Scrumptious.
