Share Article

For the first time in their long history of fine chocolates, Salon de Royal Kyoto, a chocolatier café from Kyoto opens a store overseas and Singapore is honoured to be chosen as their first destination. Founded during the early Showa era where chocolate was a luxury, the cafe commanded a long-running history of chocolatiers. What sets Salon de Royal’s chocolates apart from others is how their chocolates shine like jewels, giving them a luxurious feel and fit for royalty. From 18 April till the end of May 2017, you can taste Salon de Royal Kyoto’s chocolates and sweets at Japan Food Town, level 4 of Wisma Atria!

“Salon de Royal Kyoto is well received among the locals here in Japan. We want more people, not just Japanese, to have a taste of what high-quality chocolates made with time-old Japanese techniques taste like,” says CEO Ms Machiko Maeuchi. The café in Kyoto sits next to a river. The quaint traditional atmosphere and modern stylishness blend together to create a unique space that welcomes guests from all over the world.

On 18 April 2017, Tuesday, Chef Hiroyuki Emori, Salon de Royal Kyoto’s official advisor will be gracing the opening event in Singapore. The event offers a unique dessert demonstration done for the first time ever. Chef Emori studied under the direct mentorship of Franck Fresson, award-winning Meilleur Ouvrier de France, in Pâtisserie FRESSON in France, and has won many awards at global tournaments, giving him worldwide recognition. If you miss the session tomorrow, you will still be able to watch similar demonstrations by Chef Emori on the next day on 19 April 2017, Wednesday. Joining him are five other patissiers from the café in Kyoto to show off their chocolate-making skills that embody the pride of Salon de Royal Kyoto.

Although Chef Emori return to Japan after 19 April, the five patissiers will continue to stay for the entire promotional period to give demonstrations to the public at five different timings every day until the end of May. Viewers will get to see the techniques that go into making these popular Japanese chocolates known for their beautiful coatings, and even get to taste them for free.

Chocolates On Sales

At this first store, you will be able to find chocolates that were previously only available at the café in Kyoto. One of the highlights of this campaign is a limited edition ice cream created especially for Singapore – a pecan nut flavoured ice cream with a hint of Kinako (soybean powder), all packed into a Monaka wafer. You must also try the chocolate bon bon, often referred to as the king of chocolate. It is packed in traditional “Japanese lacquer” craft boxes or served in Matcha bowls.

The pecan nut is the signature ingredient of Salon de Royal, and you will be surprised that they actually use up to 1/3 of all pecan nuts produced in Japan. Chocolates range from $12 to $200.

You can also sample other variations of the chocolate with flavours like Matcha, Caramel, Coco, Sesame, Strawberry that you can choose from.

Taste chocolates fit for royalty from Salon de Royal Kyoto from 18 April onwards at Japan Food Town, level 4 of Wisma Atria!
