3daime taimeiken 1

“3 Daime TAIMEIKEN” is one of the traditional Western-style restaurants in Japan.
(3rd-generation)TAIMEIKEN at Ueno station was opened in late 2010.

My friend and I had quick lunch there before the shopping.
It is very convenience to have quick lunch or dinner at a station.

We had Omuraisu, crab cream croquettes, coleslaw salad and Borscht soup.
An Omuraisu is one of my favorite dishes made from egg, rice with ketchup and tomato ketchup sauce mainly. The rice with ketchup is covered by very soft and thin omelet.

The beautiful yellow omelet was melted in my mouth quickly. And, of course it was very tasty.
And also, the crab cream croquettes were very soft and creamy.
We did not even have to chew them.

Kyoto was really completely peace… if you compare to Tokyo… in these days.

You know 2011 is year of the Rabbit. Rabbit charms are from Okazaki shrine.

We had a dinner at “Star Road” where is located at the 30th floor of the top
in the hotel. The restaurant of the high-rise hotel must give us one of the
greatest views from the large windows.

The beautiful night view from the window was very fascinating.
The illuminated Tokyo Tower and the Rainbow Bridge were just beautiful. The
sparkling light makes us a very romantic and relax time.

And then, we had terrine of duck with marinated vegetables and pumpkin soup.
Also, we were able to have some kinds of hotel-baked breads that taste just
wonderful. I love the scent of freshly baked breads that makes me stimulate
my appetite.
We chose grilled veal madera sauce of morels from the main course. The
grilled veal was very delicious that was juicy and tender. It was melt
quickly in my mouse.

The good sweet made us satisfaction with our desire for food.
Finally, we had coffee and small cookies.
We were really full, and we slept on a full stomach.

It was really cold when we got up in the morning because it was slightly

The restraint prepared many kinds of Japanese and Western style breakfast.
And, it was a big event, the chefs made us an omelet in front of us.
I ordered a cheese omelet that was really good.
It was very soft and creamy. Also, it was a very nice combination with
freshly baked breads and the cheese omelet.
The breakfast made our overnight stay complete.

The amenity service is satisfactory for especially girls.
There are Bath salts, Hairbrush, Shower cap, Turban, Skin care goods
(cleansing, cleansing foam, skin toner and lotion) and so on.
Also, there is a porch bag in which is prepared for the guests who want to
take the left over amenity and unused one to their home.
It sounds that it is very attentive service at the hotel.
