Rive Gauche Patisserie

I'd passed Rive Gauche Patisserie by while in the food basement of Takashimaya, with 2 misconceptions. One: I've always thought that it was French, but as it turns out, it's actually Japanese-owned. Two: I've always thought it was a chocolatier, but as it turns out, it's a patisserie. An underrated confectionery, it seems, but with a good-sized following that's enabled the outfit to last decades.

A signature, the Guanaja ($48 for 14cm x 19cm), is a sexy confection of dark chocolate mousse, dense chocolate sponge and crispy biscuit bed. Love how the gold specks glisten in the glow of the candlelight. 

It's heady and luscious, but nuanced because of its bittersweet nature and contrasting textures.
