Yesterday Satoshi had the day off so we decided to check out Krispy Kreme.
I know this place is from America, and that we have one on Maui, but I'd never tried them before, so I was interested in what the hype was all about.
We went early in the morning, before most people line up to buy boxes and boxes of these doughnuts.
I chose caramel walnuts and chocolate iced with sprinkles.
Satoshi chose chocolate iced custard filled and creamy cheese.
The creamy cheese had a marscapone cheese filling, it was also topped with some cream cheese & parmesan cheese...this one was tart almost like yogurt.
Most of their doughnuts are really soft almost gummy.
The icing is way to sweet too. I'm glad we tried them but don't think I would go back.
From Shinsaibashi we decided to walk back to Umeda and came upon an interesting light post which looked like a stick figure.
There were several in this area.
We also saw the new EV Taxi. EV stands for Electric Vehicle, apparently there are 50 of these running around Osaka.
Satoshi had to visit the dentist later in the day, so we decided to have a quick lunch. Since we were both in the mood for curry we decided to stop in at Tokumasa.
I had the cheese curry donburi while Satoshi chose their tsukemen. Tsukemen is where the soup/curry is served on the side and you dip your noodles in to eat.
Before having lunch, we stopped in at Boulangerie Takeuchi. I've been here in the past, and wanted Satoshi to try them. The couple of times we were in the area they were closed, so I'm glad they were open today.
We picked up their roast chicken sandwich, smoked salmon sandwich, an olive bread (the crescent), baked curry bread, pumpkin brioche (filled with pumpkin custard) & chocolate w/griotte cherry bread.
We tried them for our dinner along with some wine and a salad, everything was delicious.
Lots of eating, lots of walking though the weather was overcast and a little chilly.
It is Friday here, hope you have a nice weekend.
