It had been six years since my last visit to Nakatani-tei, which I wrote about here.

These days I find myself in this area more often, so I'm trying to re-connect with some of the places I've visited when I first started this blog.

Anyway, I ordered the tarte salée set...1680 yen. This came with a tarte made from scallops, zucchini, tomato. A salad, a slice of homemade bread and some potato salad.

Everything was delicious. I liked that the tarte didn't skimp on ingredients, there were huge pieces of scallop in there.

Dessert was from the showcase and I chose something called "Fraisier", Japanese style strawberry shortcake.

I loved how there was strawberry in every bite.

And what amazed me was how my slice never toppled over...the secret?! A little neat slather of chocolate on the plate to hold the slice in place...brilliant!

I'm glad I got a chance to go back and hope to bring Satoshi here soon!

I like that square shape of the tarte. Definitely not something I've seen before.

I LOVE strawberry shortcakes in Japan - so good!

K and S said...

I think they make it that shape so they don't have to cut it like a quiche, Rowena.

me too K :)

Take care you two.

Omg, that cake looks so cute and perfect, it looks almost fake!

K and S said...

so true, Dennis, it could pass as fake :)

Take care.
