The best . Shaved ice . Ever!
I had to make a special post on this place because this was one of the most memorable things we ate during our trip and we loved it. The shaved ice is just so fluffy, soft, and melts in your mouth. Never had anything like this. Pictured above are “Bubble Milk Tea Sensation” (NT$180), “Lime Jasmine Tea Sensation” (NT$200) , and “Fresh Mango Sensation” (NT$200). All the boys liked the Milk tea flavored shaved ice the best and the girls liked the Mango one the most ★

We recently visited Taipei, Taiwan. Although it’s not related to Tokyo, I thought I’d share our vacay and a little on some of the Taipei eats we enjoyed :)
We’ve been wanting to visit Taiwan for quite some time now, and since we have friends there and the price was right on flights, we decided to go! This was our first time in Taiwan. To sum it up, we basically focused on our highest priority: eat, eat, and eat!
Before we go visit anywhere, I usually do some major research and make a list of places I’m interested in visiting. For this trip, I made a long list of places I was interested in and our friends narrowed it down to what we should do the most in our limited time and helped to plan out our basic schedule. Overall, I have to say we couldn’t have planned this trip any better. We did everything we wanted to do and way more. Special thanks to J&J and Miss I who made our bellies so FULL, drove us everywhere, and hung out with us and made our trip fun and memorable!
How adorable are these donuts? They don’t just look good, they are tasty too!
Floresta donuts as a company has a great environmentally friendly philosophy and they are trying to make the most natural and kind donuts for your body. They use safe, organic, local ingredients with no additives/preservatives and they are also careful with how much waste they produce to reduce their negative impact on the environment.
Their donuts are not the typical sweet style like Mr. Donuts. As soon as you try one you will notice it’s more on the health conscious side but they are still yummy and satisfying as a dessert. When I first discovered these donuts, I fell in love with them and wished they had more locations. The fact that they are constantly switching up the flavors every time I visit their shop is fun too. They rotate their daily selections as well as their seasonal donuts and special animal decorated donuts.

I am very excited to announce Tokyo eats new sister site, LA-eats.com!
My dear friend Julie who is also a food enthusiast has recently started blogging on yummy places in and around Los Angeles, California. Julie LOVES to eat as much as I do and she always takes me to the best spots in town! We tend to have similar tastes so if you enjoy my recommendations, I’m sure you will like hers too.
Without further ado, please check out: http://www.LA-eats.com
In case you missed my post on Part 1, Kawagoe is located in Saitama prefecture which is only an hour away from Shibuya via the Fukutoshin Line. Here are some things we ate during our day trip at the Kurazukuri-zone. I recommend coming here hungry as there are just too many goodies to eat and we got so full that we couldn’t try everything we wanted to.
I also highly recommend stopping by at KOEDO KURARI which is located on your way to the Kurazukuri-zone. They have so many souvenirs and goodies to buy as gifts, a cafe, restaurant, sake bar, and even an osozai bento shop!
