The name of this dessert shop is translated into Chinese as "Xiaoyue". The name is really domineering. The desserts of this restaurant are so exquisite that they are a bit reluctant to eat. The sweet but not greasy taste of fruit amazes me even more.
Kyoto's No. 1 wagashi, but very low-key. It is also the number one dessert shop in tabelog in Japan. Last year, my friend helped me make an appointment but it was a pity that I didn’t have time to go to Kyoto. Fortunately, I came to Japan again this year to visit Kyoto. How could I miss Xiaoyue?
I rushed over immediately after shopping from Lanshan. Because it was a pure appointment system, my friend arranged for me to pick it up at 5 o'clock in the afternoon of the same day. I had to be there on time. Fortunately, I arrived at the spot. Beida Road is far away, close to Kyoto University. I wanted to go to the well-known Huiwensha Bookstore but I didn’t have time. It takes ten minutes to walk from the subway station. Very typical old shop in Kyoto, very comfortable to look at. The big howl on the door curtain seems to tell the century-old legend of this store. Walk in clean and tidy, there is no dining area, only take away. The proprietress should be a descendant. She looked very young and polite. I reported my friend’s name and immediately took out my wagashi gift box. It was packed and exquisite. I should be the last customer.
Can't wait to open the box at night, although it is just a simple packaging, it shows the sincerity of the store. Handwritten text, without any modification, looks very advanced. I chose 5 pieces of fruit, the colors match well, and each one is delicious. Although the wagashi is definitely sweet, as the top wagashi, Xiaoyue controls it well. The skin is soft and the inset is sweet. I didn't think it was too sweet even after taking five.
The dim sum in this shop is very delicious. And the exquisite makes people feel reluctant to eat. Pleasing to the eye.
The service is very good, there is a Chinese waiter, I ordered the afternoon tea with cheesecake and black tea, the cake is really amazing! It's full of milk, and I still drool when I think about it!
