Department store Maruhiro in Kawagoe-city

2010.08.06

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.

私の故郷の埼玉県川越市に「丸広」というデパートがあります。川越ではとても有名で、私は幼少の頃から家族や友人とよくこのデパートに買い物に出掛けます。
今、その「丸広」では、朝の人気TV番組「はなまるマーケット」で紹介された「おめざ」を集めた「おめざフェア」が開催されています。とっても美味しい物が大集合です!!
大分前から一度食べてみたかった、広島の八天堂のクリームパンを手に入れることができました:)
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 ♪

2010.08.05

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  : )

Rooi bos Elder flower
2,3ヵ月前にルイボスティーを購入しました。スタッフの涼子さんに教えてもらった自由が丘の”セント・クリストファーズガーデン”で選んだものです。涼子さんは素敵なカフェやレストランを沢山知っているので、よくお勧めの場所を教えてもらいます。
体に良い紅茶が欲しかったので、写真のエルダーフラワーのルイボスティーを選びました。独特な風味なので慣れていない方は少し薬の様なイメージをされるかもしれません。ですが、味はマイルドで気持ちがリラックスでき、私自身はとても気に入っています。

2010.08.05

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. The curvey exterier design of steal and glass reflected the beauty of nature and allow to have an open space inside. 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-Okubo

2010.08.04

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 ;)

新大久保にあるコリアンタウンへ韓国の友達と行ってきました。新大久保の駅を降りるとすぐ、韓国レストランやお店がたくさんあり、サムギョプサルという韓国風の焼肉を食べました。スタッフのほとんどが韓国の人で、友達とスタッフの人たちが韓国語で盛り上がって話していて、お店からいろんなサービスをもらいとても楽しかったです♪
レストランの他にも韓国の食べ物が置いてあるお店もあり、インスタントラーメンやお菓子をたくさん買ってしまいました(笑)
デザートは別腹ということで、パッピンスを食べに行きました。パッピンスとは韓国版のカキ氷のことで、カキ氷の上にあずきがあり、そのほかに自分の好きなフルーツやナッツなどのトッピングを乗せてシロップをかけて、最後に一番上にソフトクリームがのっているという、かなり盛りだくさんなスイーツです☆私は、パッピンスが大好きで、とくに夏には食べるパッピンスは最高です!!
今年の夏は暑いので、韓国料理でスタミナとパワーをつけてみてはいかがでしょうか☆
