Azuma Patisserie is quickly becoming one of my favourite "foodie" hideouts. Apparently, many others have discovered it too. From Friday afternoons to Wednesday nights, you'll see an array of people coming to Azuma Patisserie to enjoy healthy Japanese fusion desserts and drinks.
For me, one of the standouts of Azuma Patisserie is their chiffon cake. It's dry enough on the outside to get that nice cake-just-out-of-the-oven crunch, and it's soft enough on the inside to feel like an Asian sponge cake. But the taste of Azuma Patisserie's chiffon cake is not just plain egg. There is plain, yes, but there is also honey, hazelnut and walnut, earl grey, chocolate, black sesame, and green tea. I've only tasted two of those flavours (green tea and chocolate), but they were both delicious.
They also have an array of drinks, and they also serve green tea yoghurt (which I'm sure is quite interesting). As for the drinks, they are probably most known for their matcha latte, which is served either hot or cold. I prefer the cold version, or in other words, the iced matcha latte. However, if you do order the iced matcha latte, make sure you ask for liquid sugar if you're a sweet dessert freak like me.
Located on George Street in the city, Azuma Patisserie is a convenient delight for both those working in the city and those venturing to the city in search of a great day or night out. I recommend that if you are trying it out for the first time, choose the chiffon cake: they are always very generous with the chiffon cake portions.
