I got some chocolate sweets at THEOBROMA, and suddenly I do want to decorate my bag with their lovely pinback button to show as “I’m a THEOBROMA lover”. I knew they have been selling these already, so I suddenly came up with the idea…

Cute caramel lover animals were painted by an artist Kumiko Higami. It’s smaller but as same design as THEOBROMA’s various caramel assortments canister.

Nata de Cristiano’s is a specialty store for Portuguese sweets, pies and tarts.
They don’t have many menus – we can get there egg tart, chicken pie, Pão-de-ló (Portuguese half-baked sponge cake), cheese tart, and Portuguese quiche. (Also they’re selling some daily dishes and some bottle of wines)

I got an egg tart and ate it at their small table. The tart shell was crunchy and egg cream melted very smooth in my mouth.
I was charmed by this sweets instantly. I’ll be back here and get more, very soon.
