It's the day after Valentine's Day...Satoshi was so busy that I didn't even receive a card :( Although, we did receive these chocolates from Satoshi's staff (Thank you!!)
Satoshi had the day off so we did some errands. After all of our errands were done, we went to see the movie "Flightplan". It was an interesting movie that kept you at the edge of your seat until the end.
For lunch, we went to a restaurant called Tawawa. This restaurant uses Kyoyasai (vegetables from Kyoto) and have an all-you-can-eat salad bar. My main dish was roast pork with a whole tomato on top(there is pork under there...). The whole dish was baked. There wasn't too much added seasonings so the flavor of the tomato really came through.
This is my first round at the salad bar (I went for seconds...)
After lunch, we had some time before the movie so we walked around the Carrefour market. I bought some anchovy paste since I want to try to make olive tapenade soon.
After roaming the aisles, we still had over a half hour before the movie, so we decided to have dessert. Our favorite cafe, Hiro, has a shop at the shopping center we were at, plus I received a coupon in the mail entitling us to 2 free cake and coffees (the key word....FREE!). Satoshi had a matcha cake with matcha white chocolate called "Japone", I had the sacher torte. I had never had it before and was surprised because there was apricot jam in between the chocolate and cake.
It was a great day despite the rain....
UPDATE: as of November 2011, Carrefour and Hiro are no longer at Visola
