Assam Chai Chocolate

I got a spicy milk tea chocolate from Meiji. Four spices – cinammon, ginger, caldamon and clove strongly scents from mild milk tea flavored chocolate sticks.

Maybe it is some kind of difficult because of its unique and eccentric flavor, but I hope it would become a regular assortment for future.

Taiyaki Wakaba

Here’s some famous Taiyaki shops in Tokyo, if someone asked me which place is the best, I say my most favorite Taiyaki is definitly Wakaba in Yotsuya.
From my childhood memories, I was so happy when I went back from school and found the paper wrap of Wakaba’s.

Full of salty sweet red bean paste in the crispy thin outside cake. If you were lucky enough to get a seat in the small shop, it’s better to have one or two Taiyaki “for here” before get more “to go”. Hot fresh Taiyaki is so lovely.

Lunch at Hotel de Mikuni

Kiyomi Mikuni is one of the most famous French chef in Japan, his restaurant “Hotel de Mikuni” is also famous, keep popularity and fame for a long time – 28 years – in Yotsuya.
Honestly the restaurant’s regular menu is expensive for us. However now they collaborate with OZmall, they are producing reasonable “entry” lunch course.

Main dish is daily special fish grill, other dishes are full of various beautiful vegetables, cheese and desserts.

We really enjoyed all the beautiful and awesome dishes. I hope to go back to the restaurant very soon.

This time I chose blue cheese burger, added slices of avocado. Then ordered brownie with vanilla icecream for dessert. I and my friend enjoyed a good dinner and chatting.
