I really love the colorful mushroom print.

Also, it might be easy to take my stuff in and out the bag, and I am glad to have more room to use.

Klaus Haapaniemi Tenugui towel

Klaus-Haapaniemi_tenugui_2

Home and living shop SCOPE collaborated with Klaus Haapaniemi to make some their original Japan-traditional handicraft products.
I already got mini plates, and next, they made some tenugui towels.

I got red “rabbits” pattern. The beautiful tenugui towel makes me happy, but their naming of these tenugui – “tegunui” (means cute typo or something?) is VERY weird.

caffe bene

After we had Korean lunch, my friend took me to caffe bene. The cafe is cute and looks like ordinary European or US style cafe in Japan. However some of their menus are unique.

They have “waffle with hottoku (Korean mochi dumplings)” or “patbingsu”.

We had patbingsu with strawberry ice cream and yogurt berry ice cream. The shaved ice was different from Japanese ones, it was strong condensed milk flavor. I think it’s more like Taiwanese or Vietnamese style. She said if we’d like to eat like Korean people, it should be stirred all stuff when it served. It’s different from Japanese style, very interesting!

I went to a Korean restaurant Chung Gi Wa with a friend.
She’s into Korean drama and culture recently, so that day, she took me and we enjoyed some Korean foods and sweets in Akasaka.

I tried samgyetang 参鶏湯 (chicken ginseng soup). My friend tried the restaurant famous nenmyon (Korean cold noodles).
Both of these were very good.

The shop name is came from one of the famous green apple cultivar. In Japan, this green apple is not popular yet.

I got “Dutch Crumble”, “Classic Rum Raisin” and summer seasonal flavor “coconut pineapple apple pie”. The cafe is still very crowded, so I ordered all of these pies to go.
