Met Tamakikat in Kobe today. She had planned to roam about before our lunch together, but it turned out she just took the morning easy.
We had lunch at a Vietnamese place, Chao Sai Gon, and we both had different types of pho. I was kind of disappointed that there weren't more choices on their menu, but the food was delicious.
After lunch, we walked up the hill to the area called Ijinkan where there are many preserved homes of foreigners built in the 1900's which were used as consulates and offices.
The weather started off nice but then turned cloudy. After roaming around a bit, we headed back down the hill for dessert.
Le Ba-ta-clan is a very nice cafe near the Sannomiya station. I've tried their macarons before and loved them.
I ordered the macaron set. This is 3 macarons of your choice and a drink...1050 yen (about US$10.50).
I got the bellione (fig), cherry cheesecake & creme brulee macaron with a cafe latte.
My bunny started off as only the head but when I took a sip, I added a neck to it.
Tamakikat ordered the creme brulee and a cafe latte. Her latte had a cute bear, she also added a neck to it when she took a sip. It was her first time to try a cafe latte with latte art on it.
It was a great lunch, walk and chatting...thanks for a great time, Tamakikat!
(UPDATE: 1/11/2010, the chef that makes the macaron has opened his own shop so they no longer sell his macaron here)
