You’ve only got a small chance of being able to try the Amaou Crossaints at Satsuki, a pastry shop owned by New Otani Hotels Tokyo. That’s because only 10 of these premium sweet croissants are sold per day. You’ve got to be quick, and luckily they have extended the sales period to run until July 16. Additionally, they are now selling a new mango croissant for the summer season.
Shinsuke Nakajima is a Japanese pastry chef who created the Super Series, a name that has become synonymous with New Otani Hotels. The Amaou Croissant is a dessert croissant that was developed in January this year and the first in the series. Nakajima came up with the idea because he wanted to make something where it tastes like you’re eating pure amaou, a type of strawberry. It looks luxurious, and everything from the pastry to the jam filling has been made to the utmost perfection thanks to Nakajima’s skills. It takes much time and calculation to make just one of these croissants, to they limit sales to 10 per day. Once the behind-the-scenes story on the croissants’ production hit TV they were covered across media sources and sold out straight away.
Mangoes are the king of summer fruits, and this new dessert croissant is packed with them. The center contains juicy and flavourful mango and passion fruit jelly. They’re made using a special process that consists of cooking them at 200℃ in the oven. It’s then sprinkled with white chocolate and freeze dried mangoes. When you sink your teeth into one of these it’s just a refreshing explosion of delicious mango.
Almond Chocolate Croissant
A chocolate croissant made the Hotel New Otani way with a marzipan containing almonds and chocolate, and a specially-made dough.
This croissant is very much Japane-esque, made with matcha flavoured marzipan, matcha jelly and strained bean paste. It also has white chocolate and salt obtained from burning seaweed. The green colour brings to mind the traditional Japanese-style gardens of Hotel New Otani which are 400 years old.
