Houjicha Pancake - Les PatisseriesHoujicha Pancake (vanilla ice cream, chia seeds, crushed hazelnuts, matcha spread, seasonable berries) from Les Patisseries’ newly-refreshed menu. The pancake starts off like a comfortably light, brownie-esque chocolate cake before quietly unveiling a dusky, gracefully understated hojicha fragrance and bitterness which lingers on your tongue long after the moment has passed (like the mouthly ghost of a breathless French kiss which ended too soon), while elsewhere the almost unnecessary and milkily sweet matcha spread provided more explicit sweet saucy accompaniment for those who prefer tea nudity over modesty. 4.1/5
