hara donuts in Kichijoji

hara2

I dropped into the hara donuts in Kichijoji on the way home from work after thinking I would like to relax for a bit in a cafe.

hara donuts was started by a tofu maker in Kobe and makes donuts using ingredients like bean curd and soy milk.

The exterior of the store and the donuts on display are really cute.

I ate one donut that was covered in chocolate, as well as another flavored like lemon tea.
With such mild and delicious flavors it seemed like I would not be able to stop, but since I am on a diet I was able to hold back.

I got a ‘Tori’ (a yellow bird) plate from Rilakkuma fair at Lawson in Spring 2012.
Its fair had been started from February 28th, 2012 to May 7th, 2012.
I’ve collected 30 points of the stickers in order to get the cute plate at Lawson.
It took lots of time…

I went to Jinnan Curry, which opened in March this year on Shibuya’s Bunkamura Street.

This restaurant offers additive-free curry that you can eat without worrying.

I tried their curry bread.

The outside was crisp and easy to chew, and the inside was full of delicious curry.

They bake their bread using natural yeast, making it soft and very tasty.

Inside the restaurant there was a very relaxing atmosphere with wooden furnishings.

The most highly recommended dish here is the pork saute.
This tender pork dish comes with an ample helping of rich sauce. It was really delicious.
