A stone’s throw from the Place de la Concorde hides an institution: Toraya. It’s been 38 years that the Japanese house has settled in in Paris. And we don’t even tell you about the creation of the house that goes back to 1520, meaning five centuries! It’s one of the oldest traditional patisseries in Japan. What a chance to have a store in Paris, isn’t it?
Here, everything is made by the book: from picking ingredients (azuki, wasambon-tô, agar-agar, soy powder, rice flower) to the presentation of the pastries that are true jewels. Because at Toraya, the main pastries are wagashi, these traditional Japanese pastries. Small treats inviting us to travel, relax and awaken our five senses.
Among the wagashis available, we have namagashi, monaka – a waffle based on rice flour and stuffed with kidney beans, yokan, a jellified pastry and manju, a steam cooked brioche filled with kidney bean paste.
These wonders are as pretty as delicious, you can enjoy them on the spot in the teahouse and with a nice cup of green tea or matcha tea like in Japan.
The irresistible address for all Japanese dessert lovers or simply for curious people wishing to make their taste buds discover new flavors. Moreover, Toraya reveals unique creations every season to keep thinks interesting for your eyes and taste buds.
