Ooooo glad I found Pariya パリヤ, a gelato place I like! Picked dark chocolate (always!) and kinako kuromitsu; that tiny glob you see there is almond coffee. Before handing the cup to you, the staff will ask whether you want to try any other flavour so you get a mini serving of the desired flavour, so cute! P.S. Pariya is also the supplier of salads at Cityshop Deli, +++ points because I’m a fan!

Someone recommended Hitsumabushi Bincho ひつまぶし備長 to me on my IG so I made it a point to try. It’s good indeed! And so conveniently located at Ginza/Skytree. I love the crisp chargrilled surface and it reminds me of Man Man in Singapore where K and I like to go to after work. Ahhhh those were the days…

If you saw my IG stories or if we are FB friends, you would know that I trained out of Tokyo to Satte, Saitama, for the most beautiful view of canola fields flanked with rows and rows of sakura trees! Truly breathtaking and it made me so happy!
Ok, back to food. Most people go for bento boxes when taking train rides in Japan but I prefer the simple tamago sando (egg sandwich) from Amanoya 天のや. Ignore the dry bread; just focus on the custardy egg slathered with an addictive wasabi mayo spread. Too much love for this.

I don’t understand why Magie Du Chocolat マジ・ドゥ・ショコラ is so popular. There’s constantly a stream of people queuing and because I was sitting right next to the cashier, I could see how much those people were spending. Let’s just say they didn’t hesitate to fork out yen for chocolates. But I was not impressed with their 35% & 75% mixed chocolate soft serve, and the signature baked chocolate soufflé cakes (matcha so sweet omg). Average and very forgettable.

5 cakes for 2 girls — that’s what happens when foodies-with-sweet-tooth meet. Really pleased with the calories spent at Pâtisserie Asako Iwayanagi パティスリ アサコ イワヤナギ, a chic neighbourhood boutique shop with beautifully crafted desserts. It’s impossible to choose a favourite out of the houjicha-raspberry tart (a surprising combi!), nutty chocolate slice, pistachio-cherry cake, and matcha-white chocolate terrine. I’m not a fan of sakura desserts but the sakura mont blanc is too pretty to miss.
Guess what, even after 5 cakes, I didn’t feel full at all. That’s the beauty of Japanese desserts — always so light yet satisfyingly rich in flavours.

Hello uni omelette!! Went to Mercer Brunch just for that but ended up with two same-same-but-different plates on the table, score. Because there’s uni, and there’s lobster. The latter has a reddish tinge from the fresh tomato lobster cream sauce and I like the slight sweetness. The one with uni has a more briny flavour so it really depends on personal preference. Worth a try but pity that the texture is not as fluffy as La Mère Poulard’s!

Another work lunch, this time at Midori Kaiten Sushi 回し寿司 活美登利. I’ve been to Midori Sushi at Shibuya and Ginza numerous times but this is the first at their kaiten outlet. As usual, there’s a queue and we had to wait (single diner gets seated very fast!) before it’s our turn. Quality is good considering the affordable prices; my favourites are the huge slab of anago and aburi salmon.
(and yes, one kani miso gunkan sushi is missing in the photo because I was too hungry!)
