The 9-story Kirarina, which is directly connected to Kichijoji Station on the Keio Inokashira Line, has a collection of shops where you can enjoy fashion miscellaneous goods, daily necessities, and many exquisite gourmet foods. I'm sure there must be some wonderful encounters, so I went to see it!
I arrived at Kirarina around 14:00. Today's aim is the tart of the pastry shop "Fari Beurre" that was introduced in the TV program "ZIP!" The other day. Head straight to the food market "Food Parc" on the first basement floor.
Anyway, people, people, people on the floor! The counter of Fari Beurre is also surrounded by many people, while it is crowded with many customers. Well ... it's an unbeatable battle! I also decided to order in a hurry.
I bought two berry tart "Grand Fleur (No. 3)" (650 yen) and coffee & chocolate tart "Montagne Noire" (420 yen). By the way, the Grand Fleur was the last one at this timing. For those who absolutely want to get it, it may be safe to come to the store early, such as in the morning.
After paying the bill and being immersed in the satisfaction of getting the item I was looking for, I found a very long line next to me. What on earth is this waiting for?
Yes, everyone's aim is Juchheim "Kobe beef meat pie" ! At the store, they serve freshly baked hot pies, so they guide you to the time of baking.
The author also lined up at the end and waited for about 15 minutes before being guided to the order counter.
There are three types of menus, "Kobe beef meat pie", "Jonathan apple pie", and the limited edition "Oi meat shop sukiyaki meat pie" that was baked at 14:00. The longer I lined up, the more I wanted to buy a lot of poverty, and I got one for each type and a total of four "meat pies" plus one! Huh! !!
So, let's try each one to your heart's content. First of all, from the Hokuhoku meat pie.
Kobe beef meat pie is filled with "an", which is a combination of Kobe beef, onions, and finely chopped boiled eggs. When mogumogu, the flavor of butter that overflows from the pie and the umami that oozes from Kobe beef play the best harmony.
The sukiyaki meat pie at Oi Meat Shop has a luxurious sukiyaki that uses Kobe beef for filling. The soy sauce flavor of the warishita is also working well! It's strange that it goes well with the fragrant puff pastry. By the way, the most popular item in the editorial department was this sukiyaki meat pie.
If you take it home and eat it, you should reheat it properly according to the "How to warm delicious meat pie" attached to the box before eating.
Next, let's try the Fari Beurre tart cake that was introduced on TV. First of all, from Grand Fleur.
A soft sponge is layered on a moist and soft tart dough, and plenty of mascarpone cheese is spread on top, and strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc. are displayed.
Montagne Noire, on the other hand, is a tart dough that is a little harder than strawberries. It's crunchy and cookie-like, and goes great with smooth coffee cream and chocolate glasage. In addition, the white chocolate topping adds an accent to the texture.
Both of them are big enough for two people to be alone on the day when "I really want to go for something really sweet today". There are no complaints about the taste and volume.
This time, I was able to stop by at two stores, but Kirarina has many other gourmet shops, from sweets to side dishes.
