Oh man, the beautiful aroma when my uni omelette was served. I really wish you can smell it! うに屋のあまごころ at Tokyo Station specializes in uni and the menu is all about sea urchin. I was plenty pleased with my choice — fluffy and runny ふわふわ omelette topped with briny uni sauce (though the piece of uni ain’t worth raving about). So much love for this and less than half the price of Mercer Brunch’s!

Libertable‘s porcini mushroom mont blanc was ok but I like the “veggie in cakes” concept enough to give it another go. This time, the dark chocolate with black truffle cake got to me. In a good way. It’s such a dramatic cake; both sweet and savoury flavours are so wonderfully balanced.

If a chocolate soft serve is good and creamy and ticks all the boxes of what a soft serve should be, words are superfluous.
P.S. the chef behind Le Chocolat De H is the owner of Mont St Clair, a famous patisserie in Tokyo so this is legit.

I love kaiten sushi (conveyor belt sushi) in Japan. Of course, not every kaiten sushi restaurant is good; I do my research and you should too. The rewards: affordable prices, good quality, and fun interactions with the chef.
I go to Shibuya Hikarie quite often and ぐろ問屋 三浦三崎港 is a great find. As the name suggests, maguro (tuna) is the signature and I love the negitoro gunkan! The amount of negitoro is insane; I couldn’t stuff the whole sushi into my mouth. Kudos to you if you can!

You wouldn’t expect a middle eastern nuts/spices shop selling matcha gelato but it is what it is at Far East Bazaar ヒカリエ. The unmistakably earthy matcha flavour is very intense (the staff even warned me in advance) but I don’t like the icy and “crumbly” texture. Next.

I have very fond memories of Shake Shack. When K and I went to Tokyo in April last year, Shake Shack Ebisu had just opened for a couple of days and there was a huge hype (= long queue) as usual with the Japanese. We dragged our luggage over for our first meal after landing and spent almost S$80 on fast food! To be fair, we ordered a lot so the cost was kind of justifiable — 2 burgers, 2 milkshakes, 1 cheese fries, 3 concrete sundaes. Satisfaction level was 100%.
Fast forward one year. This time I met my visiting Matchaya crew member and I didn’t go loco with ordering. A cheesy ‘Shroom Burger and black sesame milkshake (can be stronger in goma flavour but what a brilliant idea!) later, I left feeling 100% satisfied too.

I have a terrible sweet tooth but I try to find “healthier” alternatives most of the time. Like dairy-free ice cream, or agave-sweetened desserts. They make me feel better about inhaling sugar haha. Finally found something not so sinful at Gelateria Tie-An. They do soy versions and apparently the bestseller has edamame in it. Too funky for me though; I’ll stick to my usual dark chocolate, matcha (can skip the one here), and kinako kuromitsu. The kinako kuro is very good! More intense and much better than Pariya’s.
