I used to be a planner. Usually before I travel I'd have my daily schedules planned down to the hours and all the contact details of restaurants, hotels and tourist sights etc. saved in my notepad.
However I've learnt that like life - things don't usually turn out the way I plan. In my previous 2 visits to Tokyo, I had intended to try Hidemi Sugino and Qu'il Fait Bon, both rather reputable in Tokyo for their desserts. But this was not to be as it turned out the days I visited those places the lines were so long that I was informed that I'd have to be in line for at least 45 minutes. I dislike waiting in line with a passion. I really do. So I promised myself to come back another day.
This visit to Tokyo I didn't plan much. All I know is that I'd dedicate a day to satisfy my sweet tooth from morning to night. I set my alarm clock the day before and saved the addresses on my phone. I was determined not to miss out again like previous times!
 Hidemi Sugino
This is located down an anonymous alley in Ginza (took us a good half hour to find this place in the scorching heat!) and known for its long queue even before its opening hour (true fact). It serves the 'best mousse cakes' as it is known and when I first heard of this place from this other blogger I knew I had to try.
I can't remember this name! ;) It's raspberry and chestnut cream.
Mango tart (my favourite!)
Fruit combo tart
I love Sadaharu Aoki's eclairs, but I read somewhere that Pierre Marcolini makes even better eclairs at the same price (600 yen)!
