Chouquettes at Tokyo Skytree

A French small cream puff, chouquette, has come to the tallest tower in the world. A chouquette is a small puff pastry sprinkled with pearl sugar, a simple yet tasty petit chou. Since its open on December 6, 2015, “Chouquettes Tokyo”, a cafeteria at the basement level of Tokyo Skytree has introduced the French traditional dessert to Tokyo.

Incidentally, Tokyo Skytree is one of the most popular landmarks and tourist attractions in Tokyo. It is measured at 634 m (2,080 ft) and ranks as the tallest tower in the world, authorized by the Guinness World Records.

At Couquettes Tokyo, you can enjoy fresh baked chouquettes in two ways: sweet and salty. Chouquette Sucrée comes with fresh cream and salted caramel, bitter chocolate or strawberry sauce. A cheese-flavoured Chouquette Salée can go with wine. A pasty chef Tomomii Chiba who has extensive experience in Paris working with Alain Ducasse produces the recipes.
