Fine French dinner with a wonderful viewing!


I went to a brand-new French restaurant “Chez Tomo” in Ginza which I had really wanted to visit for a long.
The restautant was located on the 11th floor so I was stirred with that beautiful night view of Ginza just as I came in there.
They had only one kind of course menu for 5980yen,however,there were many choices for the relish and main dish in the course. I was puzzled which to choose : )
All dishes were very beautiful, like an art! Especially,the dish of vegetable was amazing.Look at the picture!
There were so many kinds of fresh vegetable on a plain white plate and each vegetable was cooked in an each different way. I really enjoyed it : )

Department store Maruhiro in Kawagoe-city


custard cream, chocolate cream, macya cream and fresh cream
I went to “Maruhiro” in Kawagoe-city in Saitama. It’s very famous local department store in Kawagoe.
Kawagoe-city is my home town so I often go there Since when I was a child.
There is one of populer TV program for women in the moning.
Every week day they have a guest and they ask a recommend food to the guest.
Most of the time it’s sweets. And they call them “Omeza”.
Now, ”Maruhiro” has a “Omeza fair”!!! so you can imagine how wonderful the ”Omeza fair” is!
I got some cream buns which I really wanted since very long time ago.  When I found it I was very happy : )

It’s not big size but heavy more than I thought. It means a lot of cream inside ; )
I heard the cream bun is the most populer in this fair.

It should be keeping in a refrigerator. When I had the first bite, the cream is cool and sweet then I loved it ♪
Good bun for this season.

covered like a humberger
full of chocolate cream

サイズはそんなに大きくないのに、重みがあり持った感覚でクリームがたっぷりと詰まっているのが分かりました。 冷蔵保存の為、食べた瞬間に中の冷たくて美味しいクリームが口の中でとろけ、柔らかいパンの生地と融合していて、とても美味しかったです。 夏にはぴったりのクリームパンです♪

♪TEA ♪


I bought rooi bos tea at “St.Christopher’s garden” in Jiyugaoka couple of months ago.
The tea shop  recommended from Ryoko. She knows many good cafes and restaurants!

I wanted good one for health so I selected rooi bos tea.
It has special tast, so someone might feel it’s like a kind of medicine.

But I really liked it very much. It’s tasts mild and makes me relaxed  : )

The impressive massive size and magnifisant architech of The National Art Center Tokyo has impact on my interest to visit since I first saw it in an architech book. Unexpectedly the miss taken train line has taken me to Nogizaka Station and when I walked up, there was it.

Another unique things are 2 round pillars in the middle of the facilities serves as the location of cafes and chic French restaurant. On the underground floor is art store where some unique items are found.

Shin-Okubois close to the large local Korea Town. I like Korean food very much so I went to there with best Korean friend.
She has been living in Japan for 3 month and she also miss Korean food ;)  
Of course we went to Korean restaurant and ordered Samgyeopsal.
Samgyeopsal  is a popular Korean dish and it consists of thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat. The meat is cooked on a grill at the diners’ table. 
All staff were Korean so she talked staff by Korean. Food was very tasty and made us very full!! Staff also very friendly and they were good service.
I think that it was same quality and price as Korea.
After dinner, we walked Korean town and I bought some Korean noodle and snacks! My friend recommend these stuff so I wanted to eat them ;p

After shopping we went to cafe and ate Patbingsoo!
Patbingsoo is a very popular dessert in South Korea, especially during the humid summer season.
It is ice shavings and sweetened azuki beans and topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrups, various fruits such as strawberries, kiwifruit, and bananas, small pieces of tteok (rice cake), chewy jelly bits, and cereal flakes.
You can choose your favorite topping. It is good for eating summer!!
You can get stamina and power from Korean food so I recommend to eat this hot summer season ;)
