JAL in-flight meal
I was starved D=
(I am a bias Coke fan)
Banana milk. Love it. Even my Sis that don't like milk AND banana loves it. (She's bias too - she thinks every "Japan-related" food is good)
We ordered two set. The largest and the smallest. xD We were very satisfied. It's a splurge though.
At Tokyu Department Store - Food Show
When I stepped into the food department for the first time, I was literally transfixed. My Sis had to drag me around.
The food presentation are just so pretty and tempting.
Even the fruits are all wrapped up nicely. The fruits are very expensive, especially the ones sold in department store.
Definitely recommend this. Lots of flavor - different flavors according to season. Had it on our first day and I went back for another on the second day.
Green tea with mochi and azuki (recommended!)
Mascarpone cheesecake with azuki (recommended)
Soymilk with burnt sugar (or something like that) (recommended)
Pumpkin pudding (it was pumpkin season)
Drinks we brought
I love Calpis and C.C. Lemon. Can't get enough of them.
Crepes @ Harajuku
Savory - salmon and cream cheese
Sweet - mixed fresh berries with ice-cream and cheese
Johan Bakery @ Mitsukoshi Ginza
The baked goods there are absolutely great!
(The last pic isn't from Johan - Wa.Bi.Sa's confectionery)
Kanoko (a tea shop) @ Ginza
The first floor is the confectionery store and the second floor is the tea room.
Ordered one of their famous anmitsu with black sugar syrup (you get to choose from 3 types of syrup).
It is very sweet, but the mochi and jelly helps balance the sweetness.
I did not add the syrup as it was almost too sweet for me but I saw other customers poured the whole syrup in. o.O
Sis ordered green tea kakigori (shaved ice). Perfect counterpart of the anmitsu.
We bought the anpan and calpis filled bun.
We were disappointed because the anpan was not as good as we expected. The calpis filled bun was surprisingly good.
Maybe we had too high expectation for the anpan. Maybe we happen to get the not-so-fresh one. Maybe it was a bad day at the bakery. Maybe we are not used to that kind of anpan. Oh, all the excuses I came up with....(and now I am thinking, "Maybe it was delicious! I just forgot and wrote wrongly.") But no matter, if you have a chance, try it. Afterall, it is where anpan first started.
Ginza Akebono's Shiratama Daifuku - mame daifuku & apricot daifuku
Definitely the best daifuku I had. I especially like the mame daifuku. It wasn't too sweet and there's the hint of saltiness that brings out the flavor. The mochi is very soft and chewy ("QQ")
If it is about the mochi, Mochi Cream is nothing compared to Akebono's (in my opinion).
....More to come
