A need not a want
If you’re a fan of Japanese cuisine, you need to add Momoya Soho in Japan to your bucket list. And if you’re a foodie with a sweet tooth, their new offering will make your heart sing! Meet Haru Ranman, the stunning spring-inspired parfait that looks like a piece of art and tastes like a dream.
Created by Chef Norie Uematsu, Haru Ranman means Spring in Full Bloom, and it’s easy to see why. This parfait is a sensory delight, with layer upon layer of flavors and textures that come together in a beautiful symphony of taste. From the delicate lychee lemon sakura jelly to the tangy strawberry compote, from the creamy vanilla crumble to the fluffy sakura leaf foam, this parfait is a work of culinary genius.
But it’s not just about the taste. Haru Ranman is a feast for the eyes too. Every component of the parfait is beautifully crafted, from the sakura mochi kansai style and kanto style to the hanami dango, and each one is carefully arranged to create a stunning presentation. Even the coconut tuile and yomogi kinako macaron look like edible works of art.
But the star of the show is undoubtedly the amazake ganache whip, which is rich, creamy, and indulgent. It’s hard to describe the sensation of biting into this perfect combination of sweet and savory, but suffice it to say that it’s a taste you won’t soon forget.
And let’s not forget the strawberry tonka sorbet and condensed milk ice cream, which are the perfect foil to the other, more complex flavors in the parfait. These simple but delicious elements add balance and depth to the dish, making it a truly harmonious experience.
Overall, Haru Ranman is a masterpiece of Japanese dessert cuisine, and it’s easy to see why it’s quickly becoming the talk of the town. So if you’re in the area, be sure to make a stop at Momoya Soho and indulge in this edible work of art. Your taste buds (and your Instagram feed) will thank you!
