Pop into Silom Complex today to celebrate the recent opening of the second branch in Thailand of Patisserie Masatomi, which is fast making a name for its Japanese-style sweet treats with a French foundation. Sticking with the sober garb of the original _ simple Japanese woodwork and a grey colour scheme, this little nook on the fourth floor is the must-go-to for gents who love pastries and sweetmeats but without the feminine frills.
Tommy Rungnoppakunsi, the chef-owner, knows from personal experience that many men wouldn't want to be caught dead enjoying a girly-looking cake in a dainty cafe.
While the desserts here look rather plain, they won't fail to impress you. Don't miss Moji Strawberry (150 baht); although large, you will be surprised how easy it is to finish it.
Thanks to a creamy yet light mousse made from raspberries and strawberries, which has just the right amount of tartness to offset the sweetness, this satiny delight is not at all heavy on the tummy. Although named after cherry blossom, the Sakura Roll (150 baht) is not a hot pink hue, but neither is it as sickly sweet as its appearance and fleece-like texture might suggest.
