Last Friday, I met up with Tamakikat (who by the way, moved her blog due to photo overload).
Anyway, we went to check out the annual Salon du Chocolat held at JR Kyoto Isetan.
This year, there were 3 new French chocolatiers that I wanted to check out.
I was able to buy some items to try and I'll post about them soon.
After walking around, we had some Babbi gelato before lunch. Usually whenever I try things, I choose chocolatey flavors to be "safe", but I decided to be brave and tried the Fichi (fig) and Pistacchio (pistachio)...both were delicious though I would have wanted the fig to have been more "figgy"....682 yen (about US$6.82)
And then for lunch we checked out Salvatore Cuomo's buffet lunch near Sanjo...1280 yen (about US$12.80). This restaurant is related to the one we had our anniversary dinner at, so you know the food was good.
The wind was icy and the weather quite overcast, but we had lots to eat and great conversation. (Thanks for a great day, TK!)
