A city’s best-kept secret by Conde Nast Traveler

Means that it’s no longer a best-kept secret. Oh well! This particular secret has already been found as it is right next to our place on Rue Vaugirard. Sadaharu Aoki, the pastry wizard. The French are passionate connoisseurs of patisseries. Really, only in Paris, do people line up around the corner for gateaus. So, it’s a testament to Japanese-born Sadaharu Aoki. The appeal is his mélange of Japanese ingredients like macha (Japanese green tea powder), sesame, and yuzu (Japanese lemon) with French elements. My favorite, Macaron au macha, and the kitsche looking, beautifully coiffed, mannequin like Japanese girls who serve at his Patisserie. Only in Paris!
