Since coming to Japan, I have often wondered, “What is the difference between a parfait and a sundae?” This is because what are called “parfait” (パフエor パルフエ according to my dictionary) are often eaten in Japan. I know it is an English word, too, but I don’t really use the word “parfait” in America. So I was wondering: What is the difference between a parfait and a sundae? According to Dictionary.com–
This was my husband’s parfait at a restaurant aptly named Berry in Ikebukuro.
My mango and strawberry tart. I got it because I figured it had a lower calorie content than a parfait. Did you hear I’m on a DIE
My son’s rose mango parfait. Japanese people often put cornflakes in their parfaits. Well, this parfait had crunchy pie crust flakes at the bottom. I tasted a bit and it was REALLY yummy!
