Tsujiri brings its awesome Japanese sweets to Singapore


In the Kyoto guide that I created back in 2009, I wrote about an ├╝ber-popular dessert cafe called Tsujiri. Tsujiri, founded in 1860, is especially famous for its green tea desserts and cold drinks. The branch that I visited in Kyoto is so popular the waiting time is usually a minimum of 30-40 minutes. But now, thankfully, I neither need to fly to Japan nor queue up for a green tea parfait. Tsujiri has opened a branch in Singapore, located in the 100AM shopping centre on Tras Street.

I do have to say though, that the portion sizes being served here are (disappointingly) smaller than what is served in Japan. I also didn’t appreciate being served my parfait in a plastic cup. I have no problem with a plastic cup being used for takeaways but for patrons dining-in, I would have liked it if they used a large parfait glass, as they do in Japan. But that’s just me being fussy (us old folks are allowed to be finicky, aren’t we?).

Nonetheless, I enjoyed my little treat very much. On my last visit, I shared a Shiratama Parfait with my wife S (pictured in this post). We chose this one because S wanted the mochi dusted with kinako. Next time, I intend to have the Chiffon Cake Parfait as well as one of their shaved ice desserts (I am a huge sucker for kakigori).

Anyway, I’m just really happy Tsujiri has made it to our shores and thought y’all might want to check it out for yourselves.
