Odds and ends...a coffee drink by Mt. Rainier coffee, I love that they used 70% chocolate, made the drink a little sweet but not sickly sweet.
Starbucks has a new coffee drink in convenience stores...chocolate eclair latte.
This one is sweet but actually does taste like an eclair.
Pafonte's cream bread...in the shape of Hello Kitty, cute and delicious.
The cream was a chocolate custard, even better. The flower was unfortunately a soggy cookie with a maraschino cherry.
Eyes and nose were sweetened black beans.
Lawson's rolled cake filled with an earl grey tea cream.
The earl grey tea is made by Ahmad.
Dinner at Chaina, we tried their ebi-mayo (fried shrimp coated with a mayonnaise sauce).
Anchor's Humming Ale.
I loved the fruitiness.
Katharine Hepburn brownies, recipe by Lori Longbotham.
I think my pan doesn't heat nicely or the batter wasn't mixed good because the middle rose up really high and after it came out of the oven it looked like a mound.
Even though it didn't look nice, it tasted good--rich and chocolatey.
Lawson's char siu-man...like char siu bao (or what we call manapua in Hawaii).
This one was tasty though there wasn't much meat in there, more sauce.
Maisen's mini burgers. Maisen is a katsu (cutlet) shop in Tokyo. They sell their katsu sandwiches in many department stores.
I tried their mini burgers for lunch one day--shrimp katsu, menchi katsu (hamburger) & filet katsu...All were delicious and no skimping on the fillings.
Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio Flax Olive oil muffins....nice and chocolatey.
Dunno if your Starbucks has this but at the bottom of the receipts here, whenever you order regular coffee, you can get another cup for 100 yen (about US$1).
I've seen people buy a cup and use the receipt to get another one (not as a refill).
I think you should have to re-use the cup that you received the first cup in, it would be better for the environment.
Gokan's Lemon-san...a delicious moist lemon cake with a light lemon glaze.
Perfect with tea.
Paulaner's Salvator...meh, dark colored fizzy water.
Starbuck's chocolate loaf cake...this is tiny but I love that it is a chocolate spice cake filled with figs and glazed with a dark chocolate ganache.
And after all that eating...we need a nap.
This guy was totally snoozing in McD's...
It is Friday here, hope you have a nice weekend!
