Yesterday, I met my blogging friend, Tamakikat for walking, talking and noshing around her stomping ground, Kyoto.
We met in the morning and the weather was beautiful! As we walked through Yasaka Shrine, we saw a procession of people. It turned out that these people were from the Toei Movie Land in Kyoto and were going around to different establishments to give their New Year greetings.
At our last meeting, Tamakikat had mentioned about having matcha fondue, so I had her take me for some at the place she tried it at, Jouvencelle.
A two layered ceramic box comes filled with different types of seasonal fruit and Japanese confections.
The matcha fondue is warm and they also add warm milk to it at the end for you to drink (though we didn't drink it because we were stuffed!)
I thought they mixed white chocolate with matcha to make the fondue, though Tamakikat thought they had a matcha chocolate which they melted, either way it was delicious.
As we were walking about, we came upon this cafe. I don't think the owners realize what they named their cafe...or maybe they do.
Anyway, tomorrow, I'll post more about our adventure...roaming the machiya(town houses)...stay tuned.
