1) Delicious and juicy fried chicken sandwich. yummm. I could only eat half cause it was huge…
2) Had to check out this new fad in SF, the artisan Toast boom. They serve coffee from Four Barrel Coffee. Lots of hipsters. Right by the famous Alamo Square ;)
Trick or Treat!
Look at these festive Halloween donuts by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. They are currently having a limited edition Halloween Special until 10/31. Our friends kindly brought these over the other day, it was such an awesome treat!
Included in this Halloween box set are:
- Original Glazed
- Orange Chocolate Spider
- Caramel Halloween Jack
- Purple Potato Mont Blanc
- Chocolate Iced Custard Filled
In case you didn’t know, Krispy Kreme taste the best after microwaving them for 7~8 seconds just before you eat them. It really makes a difference ;)

Stopped by this bakery cafe for brunch with Miss E recently. The cafe name in English makes no sense but in Japanese, it’s pronounced “Pan to Espresso to”. They are quite famous for having a good bakery and yummy coffee. I’m sure the coffee/espresso is good because it’s from Omotesando Koffee! However, we happened to visit the cafe on a day that their espresso machine broke so we unfortunately couldn’t order their specialty drinks. FAIL.
They have 2 lunch sets on the weekends. The ‘Weekend Brunch Set’(1500yen) includes an assortment of bread, side dish, ham, butter, honey, and drink. The ‘Panini Lunch Set’(1000yen) comes with a panini of your choice, side dish, and drink. You can also pay an extra 150yen to get soy milk in your coffee if you prefer. The bread was definitely good and the paninis were decent. I’m gonna have to come back here a few more times to fully explore this place.
After we left the cafe, we were walking around Omotesando and a lady came running after us asking us if we would be ok to be photographed for a fashion magazine. At first, we were like huh? I’ve always seen street snaps in Japanese magazines but never thought we’d be asked to be in one. I guess this really does happen! After hearing more about it, Miss E and I decided to pose for the camera. We then had to fill out a short form of what we were wearing and how much each item cost, etc. I’d have to say I’m a little excited/curious/worried about how this is going to come out…sigh*

Currently snacking on these adorable donuts from floresta donuts. Came across froggy and piggy this time♡ These soy donuts have really become one of my favorite treats lately.
Hope everyone is having a lovely day :)
One of LA’s popular cafes opened a store in Tokyo on April 24th, 2013. With it’s chic location in Daikanyama and its very spacious venue, I have a feeling that this cafe will do well. They have a great terrace seating and also allow guests to bring their dogs with them to dine (only for the terrace seats). Urth caffe is famous for their breakfast, organic coffees (especially the lattes), salads and more. We decided to order some of our favorite dishes: a full-size ‘Urth Salad’ (1360yen), Chicken Curry Sandwich (1600yen), and a large Green Tea latte (600yen). Although it feels a bit pricey, the food was the same sized portions as the US and it was yummy just as I remembered it.
I’m not a huge fan of the wall decor but the cafe was filled with beautiful orchids from famous celebrities to congratulate their recent opening. Seems like pro golfer Shigeki Maruyama is the mastermind who decided to bring this cafe to Japan. He loved it so much that he decided to bring it to Tokyo. If you are looking for a good breakfast or an American-style meal, definitely stop by Daikanyama.
