back to shinagawa

Sunday, Satoshi had to go to work, and I went to pick up our seasonal greeting cards.

It has been awhile since I've eaten anything from Guzman y Gomez, so I ordered a spicy fish burrito and added some guacamole to go. 

The rice was a little mushy and it could have had a little more fish in there but overall I enjoyed this.

The an butter from Breadworks was delicious...biscuit/scone like "bread" filled with sweet bean paste and whipped butter.
I also picked up their stollen to try...this one was dense and heavy!

Look at those huge marron glace (candied chestnuts) on top!

I sliced this on the diagonal so that most pieces would have a chestnut.

This was a little too sweet but super buttery!

There were also tiny pieces of chestnuts baked into the stollen too.

I'm glad we tried this stollen and grateful we are able to enjoy these foods, especially this year.

are places more crowded on weekends vs. when you would go exploring on weekdays? still scary with the numbers rising.
That stollen looks so ono. especially with the marron glace!
I should go looking for some around here too. I wonder if Kahala hotel will be making this year. Heard theirs was really good.

Mmm looks great! I wish Marron/chestnut desserts were more prevalent in the US!
