fu – fuwa fuwa souffle


I felt funny when I found “ふ” (“fu” only 1 hiragana letter) on fluffy cake’s pack in convenience store at the first time.
And it’s quite interesting because we can imagine “fuwa fuwa” or “fuka fuka” both means like fluffly – from only one letter!



Of course it’s fluffy and good.

Yasaika Mei


My friends and I went to have a lot of fresh vegetables at Yasaika Mei for lunch in Kashiwa.

The restaurant was flooded with a lot of sunlight because of the large windows. The lovely sunlight made us feel comfortable.

We had a special lunch course.
It was started with Bagna cauda.
The beautiful vegetables were garden-fresh of the locals.
Yasaika Mei buys fresh vegetables from the local contract farmers.


And, we had small portions of the appetizer that were the 9 kinds of vegetables.
They were beautifully placed in a square serving dish.




Also, we had SASHIMI of fresh Aloe vera, Tempura of vegetables, grilled conger myriaster and some vegetables,
cooked rice with salmon roe, whitebait and field mustard and some desserts that were mango sorbet, abekawa-mochi and brownie with fresh cream and tomato compote.
Everything was perfectly good taste, and it made us healthy body too.

We had breakfast at the Club House Restaurant of “The Atta Terrace Golf Resort” where was next to the golf links.
This was the last food at the hotel before we checked out.


We had breakfast of Japanese style.
There were a lot of small dishes on the tray. They were salad, Japanese pickles, Japanese omelette, boild spinach, tofu, fish, seaweed, rice and miso soup.
At the end, we finished some fruits and coffee.


It was very good to spend a relaxed time as we watched the beautiful lawn of the golf links.
