Haiyah! Japanese Finds: Patisserie Bebe Rouge’s Strawberry Shortcake

By Kitchyart on 23 April, 2013

When there were rumors about a famous homemade strawberry shortcake business closing down, I wasn’t too worried.

Bebe Rouge started out as a small kiosk inside New Hatchin Japanese Grocery in San Antonio Village, displaying delicately prepared cakes and pastries that looked too pretty to eat. I’ve made mental notes to order this cake for birthdays but I always misplace their contact details.

Last year, it was a delight to see that Bebe Rouge expanded to their own space just right next to New Hatchin; although it took them several months to open.  In the past couple of months (or maybe weeks), I took some friends and family to try their strawberry shortcake.

It’s a soft, pillowy taste of heaven.  A very light chiffon cake layered with white, rich, whipped cream and chunks of fresh strawberries in between.  Each slice is topped with a whole fresh strawberry.  This cake looks so perfect, it’s almost a sin to poke your fork into it. It’s so easy to finish off this cake in seconds; sometimes I feel a little selfish not wanting to share a piece with others.

The dining area should be open by now, it’s a great opportunity to get to try a slice or two. But trust me, this cake is a sure hit at any party.

    this has been my favorite Japanese style strawberry shortcake since 2007. i love the fact that i can opt to buy only a slice when i am not in the mood to finish one whole (small) cake. which is easy to do with the bebe rouge strawberry shortcake. drinks are now also served at the small bakeshop.their homemade nama style chocolates are also good. just not sure if available all year round.
