Food Review: Ladurée Tokyo | Best chill-out spot in Ginza

Mention Ladurée and images of its flagship store along Champs-Élysées come to my mind. Thankfully, we need not fly to Paris if we are craving for the ever delectable macaroons since its debut opening in Ngee Ann City Singapore few months ago. The only regret of the Singapore outlet is that it is only for takeaways.

Upon booking my Tokyo tickets, visiting the Ladurée cafe is at the top of my to do list. There are a few outlets in Tokyo and I am fortunate to visit the Ginza branch.

The popularity of  Ladurée in Tokyo is evident by the fact that we have to wait for about 20 minutes on a weekday afternoon to be seated. Our wait was not in vain, as we were ushered to the best seats in the cafe – right smack in the middle overlooking the busy cross-junction of Ginza.

The best way to spend the afternoon while in Tokyo is to slow down your pace, check in to a cafe and simply people watch. Best still, order a cuppa tea or coffee and pair it with macarons. This is life.

charges a premium for its food and famous macarons which I do not deny is a tad overpriced. I will forgive the exorbitant price for once, given that this is Tokyo and I am getting one of the best views of Ginza.

The much raved macarons is not to be missed if you have not tried it yet. I had the Pistachio and Hazelnut flavour, which I am more fond of the former. Is it worth the hefty price tag of about SGD$4 per piece? You will have to find out yourself.

It is probably one of my best spent afternoons in Tokyo here in Ladurée Ginza. The pretty presentation of the tea and macarons and the opulent ambience surely played a part in the overall experience. If you are tired after a whole day of shopping in Ginza, this will be a good recuperation point, albeit an expensive one.IMG_0538TheRantingPanda says:
