My friend's birthday is coming up and I would like to buy her a green tea tiramisu cake. The only place I know of to get one is the Mitsuwa bakery in Little Tokyo. Anyone know any other places? Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

    Yes. I found a good Asian bakery at the Food Court next door to Full House in Arcadia. Their art work is just beautiful. Yesterday I got a green tea cheese cake. I'm sure they can do your request. If you need directions, they are located at the intersection of Golden West and Duarte Road in Arcadia in an Asian strip mall. Or get a map to Full House, they are next door.

      I believe you are referring to RJ Patisserie. I agree that their desserts are beautiful, but I don't think they taste that great. I prefer JJ Bakery.

      JJ Bakery
      (626) 574-5866
      1130 S Baldwin Ave
      Arcadia, CA

      JJ's are really beautiful, too, and they taste much better, imo.

        JJ's bakery would have it, they have locations in Arcadia, Rowland Heights and some others

          The name of the bakery next to Full House is R.J. Patisserie, 626-574-9399. Forgot I had a business card when I first posted.

            JJ Bakery, Diamond Bakery or Phoenix Bakery in SGV all can accommodate a request for green tea tiramisu (although be warned that my experience is that a Chinese/HK rendition of tiramisu is often very different than what a traditional Italian would consider tiramisu).

            Also, you might want to give Jin Patisserie a call, I'm sure Kristy can gin something up for you.

              Some Korean bakeries might have it. Otherwise, try Chantilly Patisserie. It's tecnhically in Lomita-- but just past the Lomita-Torrance limits-- in the same strip mall as Gaja Okonomiyaki.

                If you're on the westside, you could try calling Mousse Fantasy for the Japanese version; they now share a store space with Beard Papa, next to Nijiya Market, on Sawtelle N of Olympic.
