white day (part 2)

IMG_3485 So, let me continue telling you about our White Day.

Lunch was at a little yoshoku-ya (western-style food shop) called 114 (ichi ichi yon). How cute is the door?!

IMG_3486 I had their one plate lunch...900 yen this came with a homemade hamburger patty dressed with demi-glace sauce and dry curry. It also came with a little salad and a poached apple.

Delicious and filling. The hamburger was really tender and the curry had just the right amount of spice.

Satoshi had this. Their ebi fry (fried shrimp) and hamburger plate...800 yen, which he really enjoyed.

I was really surprised at how popular this place was with females, mostly you find men at these types of shops during the work week.

After lunch we saw Amour. This movie won the Academy award for best foreign film this year.

The story was in French which was good for practicing my listening skills, but I know I missed a lot because I can't read the Japanese subtitling quick enough.

Anyway, the movie overall was a bit "too real" for me, and afterwards I was feeling a bit down.

I think this place is relatively new, and they specialize in coffee.

I really liked the interior.

IMG_3491 I had their (P) sized cappuccino...400 yen. (I think (P) stands for petite because their other size is (G) which I think stands for grande). Satoshi had their coffee...300 yen. We also shared a cake doughnut...130 yen.

All in all, it was a great day. (Thanks Satoshi!)

Thanks for the opinion on the movie -- just checked the link and youtube trailer and it looks interesting. May decide to watch it but I know already that I'm a big cry baby in these types of movies!

I had only heard about that movie during the awards season, it looked like it was nominated for quite a few awards!
