Parfait in Gion Tsujiri ( (祇園つじり の パフェ)

Visiting Kyoto is definitely not complete without tasting its elegantly sweet and bitter matcha parfait using only the finest teas in Kyoto. A very Japanese approach to dessert, I must say. A Japanese friend of mine has kindly invited me to this beautiful store, Gion Tsujiri, tucked along the busy street of Shijo-dori. I thought this place would only be filled with women but I was wrong. I even saw some old local men and also male foreigners inside the shop. I think that is a sure testament of the shop’s success.

So here are the parfaits we ordered: Shiratama Parfait (白玉パフェ) and Fukiyose (吹きよせ).
