CHOCOLATIER PALET D’OR “Chocolat Marron Parfait”
CHOCOLATIER PALET D’OR is the first café in Osaka Umeda, that pops up in everyone’s mind when it comes to a delicious chocolate parfait.
I visited there soon after a friend of mine told me about its seasonal chestnut and chocolate parfait.
The café is on the fourth floor of one of the stylish commercial buildings in Umeda, “HERBIS PLAZA ENT”.
What caught my eye in the menu was a seasonal Parfait PALET D’OR.
After a few minutes of waiting as I gazed at Osaka station through the window, Chocolat Marron Parfait 1500Yen was brought to me.
Chocolate and chestnut ice cream, added to white chocolate cream that has chestnut flavor; a total of fifteen chocolate parts comprises this luxurious parfait, including carefully made roasted-coffee ice cream, and black currant sorbet.
With such a wonderful view in the background, let’s dig in!
Chestnut in syrup is soft, and packed with tender sweetness.
The balance between white chocolate cream and chestnut cream is just superb.
Meringue sticks also have chocolate flavor.
Sour black currant sorbet really brings out the flavor of chestnut and chocolate.
This is super delicious!!!!
Mild sweetness from chestnut cream also accentuates the chocolate flavor.
Personally, what moved me most was a combination of crispy aroma and saltiness in chocolate-coated nuts!
When I dug deeper, I found a scoop of bitter chocolate ice cream…
Bitter chocolate ice cream with a hint of brandy gives a kick to the whole parfait, as well as a cool aftertaste.
Each and every bit of this parfait is so delicious!!!!
I was simply, totally amazed by everything in this parfait being of such a high quality: the balance of materials, richness and depth of flavor, and aftertaste.
This was such a filling, rich parfait beyond my imagination. Even for 1500 Yen, I felt it was still very reasonable.
Besides this shop in Osaka, CHOCOLATIER PALET D’OR can be enjoyed in Tokyo too.
I really recommend this café, especially if you are a chocolate lover.
