Enjoy a Luxurious Beef Stew Set Made with Cocoa at Cacaotier Gokan Koraibashi Main Store in Osaka

In 2017, popular Osaka patisserie “Gokan” that has various locations in department stores opened a chocolate specialty store, “Cacaotier Gokan Koraibashi Main Store.”
Using cocoa beans from plantations around the world, the pastry chefs make the chocolate in-house, following a classical “bean to bar” approach.
I heard that they have a beef stew set made with cocoa for lunch, so I hurried up and went in for a visit!

Chocolate Soft-Serve Ice Cream from “MAX BRENNER” in Osaka

“MAX BRENNER” is a chocolate brand from Israel.
They now have over 40 shops around the world that sell their chocolate bars, the first established shop being in New York.
Their soft-serve ice cream, which was previously only available in the Tokyo location, is now available in Osaka, so I had to visit as soon as I could!
The shop is located on the 2nd floor of “LUCUA 1100,” a fashion building in front of Osaka Station.

Tokyo, GINZA SIX - Japan's First Café Dior by Pierre Hermé

This Ginza location offers a Japanese goods-only menu, made with carefully selected Japan-produced ingredients.
