Japanese Ice-Ouca

ice_Ouca_1

My friend and I just stopped by ‘Japanese Ice-Ouca’ in Ebisu.
We are able to have their fresh and yummy ice creams there because they make the ice creams at the shop every day using carefully selected ingredients in many places around Japan.

My friend chose kokutou-kinako, milk and matcha green tea flavors, and I chose tomato, asparagus and strawberry flavors.

However, it is very nice to have a free drink of houji-cha (roasted green tea) in the shop.

My friend and I went to ‘Restrante-Hiro Ginza for dinner.
We love the restaurant because it is very cozy and quiet place in Ginza.

And, we had their special course, ‘Cena Specialte’ that was organized with their very popular menus.

I especially love their very popular fruit tomato pasta served cold.
I felt like having a couple of refills for it.

Scarf from Marc by Marc Jacobs

I got a crocodile-print modal scarf from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
I love the bright colors such as brown and coral, and also I think that it must be good for summer because it is very lightweight and very comfortable of the gauze texture.

shoan 4

Soft dried anzu (apricot) in daihuku.
Apricot is separate with center of mochi dumpling to anko (bean jam) carefully. Looks like tiny sandwich when you bite this.
Lovely orange color can see through the mochi dumpling. Sweet and sour, beautiful scent of apricot! I love this!

I got a box of Fruit Sandwiches at Sembikiya in Ginza for my lunch.
This is what I’ve been looking for!
I love the beautiful rose patterned box also.

When I opened the box. it smelled so good with sweet fresh fruits and fresh cream.
And, I got surprised that the sandwiches were beautifully fitted in the box.

I really had good lunch time with the gorgeous sandwiches with the sliced fresh fruits such as strawberries, apples, yellow peaches and melons and fresh cream that was not too sweet.
