foodie thursday

#lunch keema curry, pickles & earl grey @ Elmer's green #cafe #tea #osaka #japan Thursday I went to get my teeth cleaned (no cavities, yeah!).

Afterwards, I had lunch at Elmer's Green Cafe.

It had been some time since I had been there and I think their menu had changed a bit.

I ordered their Keema Curry lunch...850 yen. This came with a choice of a salad or pickles or dessert and a drink.

I chose their pickles and a cup of earl grey tea.

Under all of that green onion there is a soft boiled egg.

The curry was filling but could've been spicier. The pickles were delicious and puckery.

Bon-Bons from Tikal by Cacao en Masse : Elizabeth (crown) lemon cream, Pistacho (rectangle) pistachio cream & Guinness Cake (checker) guinness cream : favorite = guinness #chocolate #osaka #japan A couple of streets down from Elmer's is Tikal, a chocolate shop by Broadhurst.

Broadhurst is an English pastry chef, whom I visited about 5 years ago!

I tried 3 of his bon-bons...Elizabeth (crown) filled with lemon cream, Pistachio (rectangle) filled with pistachio cream & Guinness Cake (checker) filled with guinness cream...910 yen.

I enjoyed them all but my favorite has to be the Guinness one.

The skies were really grey but I'm glad I was able to get out and about.

Is this with the same dentist? (because I remembered that you were thinking of switching). The keema curry looks awesome with the mountain of green onions.

Rowena, This is the new dentist :) I was kinda overwhelmed when I saw all that green onion, but was happy it didn't much bite.

Take care.

Hi Kat,
Good to hear your teeth are doing well. I thought the curry could have been spicier as well. What's this area like during the week? It's always pretty quiet on weekends.

Thanks Phil! The place was kinda quiet also during the week.

Take care.
