Fresh summer vegetables

2010.08.21

The heat of late summer is still severe this year..!
The owner of Andon gave me lots of summer vegetables the other day.
I brought them home and my mother cooked Mabo-nasu with them for dinner the next day.
It was rather hot and very tasty : )
It charged much energy into me to fight a heat weather..!

夏も終盤を迎えつつあるのに、残暑厳しい毎日です。
先日、行燈の近くのおうどん屋さん〝かのふや〟さんよりたくさんの夏野菜をいただきました。
私も、茄子や可愛らしいかぼちゃを分けていただき家に持ち帰りました。
翌日の夕食は早速、「マーボー茄子」でした。
ピリッと辛くて夏の味がして、とても美味しかったです。
美味しいものをたくさん食べて、夏の終わりを更に元気に楽しく過ごしたいです!

French restaurant

2010.08.20

I went to french restaurant “Brasserie Gus” near Iidabashi station with my friend.
It’s about 10minutes from the station very convenient but little hard to find it, it’s quite small.
I ate again before I take picture. Can you recognize it? It’s rib beef.
It’s very soft and juicy. It melted in my mouth.
And vegetables are so tasty.  
This restaurant is very small and doesn’t have many seats but cozy so I really liked it! I want to go back again. And I had a gateau au chocolat for my dessert which is very good!!  But I want to try tart next!
友達とフレンチレストランに行って来ました。このレストランは友人が見つけてくれたレストランです。飯田橋駅から10分くらいの所にあります。
とても小さく見過ごしてしまいそうな可愛いレストランです。
レストランの中は広くはありませんが、とても心地良い空間です。
今回も食べ始めた後に写真を撮ったので少し崩れています・・・。
とっても柔らかいお肉で口の中でとろけました。
添えてある野菜も大きめで食べごたえがあり、とっても美味しかったです。
デザートにはガトーショコラをいただきました。お肉のボリュームに満足でしたが、チョコレートが大好きなのでペロッと平らげてしまいました:)
 
ぜひまた近いうちに行きたいと思っています!!

Summer Trip to Mt.Takao

2010.08.19

 I have heard of Mt.Takao from many people, it seems like a hot spot for trekking all year round. The other day, I finally got a chance to go there with Ryoko san and Airi san…From downtown Tokyo catch Chuo line train all the way to Takao Station and change to Keio line to go to Takaoguchi Station. From the ground, we got a roundtrip cable car ticket to the middle of the mountain and started trekking from there, we chose the most famous and easiest route, No.1, because most of the sight seeing spots could be reached by this route. However, if you like to observe nature upclose, I recommended route No.6
 We had a great time and enjoyed the nature’s beauty, we saw few power spot like “Tako-taki” and I made a wish. After we came back on the ground, we had lunch at Italian restaurant, all the spaghetti and pizza were homemade, they were delicious….:) It’s my memorable Summer Trip.

Tokyo Tower

2010.08.18

I went to dinner with friend last week at Hamamatsucho. I hardly ever visit to there so it was enjoying to explore at there.
After that we walked to Tokyo tower. It takes about 15 min by walking from Hamamatsucho staion.
I recommend to go Shiba-park on the way if you walk to Hamamatsucho to Tokyo tower because it is very calm and beautiful park. Also you can see the Zojo-ji temple and Tokyo tower from there.

I am working in Tokyo but I have been to Tokyo Tower few times in my life. I did not know that it is not so far from Andon and very beautiful tower.
I suggest to go there when you visit to Andon.
Also new tower is constructed in Tokyo which name is “Tokyo sky tree”.
You can see it from Andon!
I am looking forward to seeing it very much.

この間、浜松町へ友達とご飯を食べに行きました。浜松町はめったに行かない場所だったので、とても新鮮でいろいろと探索をしました。ご飯を食べた後、東京タワーまで歩いて行きました。東京タワーは遠くからは見ていましたが、実際行った経験は人生の中でほんの数回。。。浜松町駅からそんなにも遠くなく、歩いて15分くらいで東京タワーまで行けてしまうことにびっくりでした。途中に芝公園というきれいな公園もありました。
東京で働いているのにも関わらず、以外と東京の有名な場所を知らなかったり、行っていなかったりしていることに気づかされました。
東京タワーは本当にきれいでしたが、今、建設途中の東京スカイツリーを見るのも、今から楽しみです。
