Henri Charpentier began in 1969 as a humble café in Ashiya city, Japan. Founded by Naokuni Arita, the fine French-inspired Japanese dessert chain achieved renown status from confectionary all over Japan. Today, it has its first overseas branch at Demsey road, Singapore.
Using finest ingredients and crafted with a unique balance of flavours and textures, the sweets can be enjoyed conveniently at every occasion. Their popular Madeleines and Financiers won my heart. The madeleines are made with Hokkaido flour, Japanese lemons, fragrant rum and honey. To maintain the fresh aroma, each madeleine is packed within 20 minutes after baking so as to ensure the sweets remains its freshness! It’s so moist and fluffy, which pairs well with my afternoon tea. Les Financiers is made with fragrant almond and Henri’s original cultured butter recipe. The batter is carefully prepared to maximise moisture, making the financier soft and delicious as if they had just come out of the oven.
