The Tokyo Fruits
Time Out says
Nestled in the backstreets of trendy Jiyugaoka, The Tokyo Fruits produces some of the best fruit parfaits around. The combination of sliced fruit, mousse, fruit jelly, whipped cream and sorbet has oodles of flavour, a winning texture and tastes every bit as good as it looks. The selection is informed by what’s in season, so you’re likely to find cherry and peach parfaits in summer, grape and sweet potato in autumn and strawberry in winter.
To maintain quality, owner and fruit expert Maeda frequently travels across the country to source from the best orchards – and that attention to detail and obsession with provenance is reflected in the prices, which range between ¥2,000 to ¥2,500 per glass. As all parfaits are made to order, expect a 20-minute wait during peak hours – but Maeda helps you pass the time by serving some fresh-cut fruit at no extra charge in the interim. The menu also offers freshly squeezed juices, coffee, fruit sandwiches, French toast and sponge cake.
