Aqua S

Tried the Aqua S sea salt and pineapple ice cream with Fairy Floss as topping.



My verdict? I’d say it is a novelty more than anything else. Unfortunately, it tasted a little plain, and the pineapple needed a little tang.

You can find Aqua S near town hall near Regent Place.

Chocolate Mousse Dome with Hazelnuts was pretty nice.



Oreo Sundae. Nothing to Rave about. Nothing very creative. Just vanilla ice-cream with some Oreos thrown into it.



Green Tea Smoothie. Not bad.

Overall I found the experience mediocre. The desserts are nothing to rave about. and the waitstaff don’t do anything beyond serving you.

Green Tea Cafe – Tsujiri Honten

During my trip to Japan this was one of my must-do places to visit.  This place in located within the Main Streets of Old-Gion , Kyoto. The place is pretty easy to find because around lunch time you see a massive queue  of people lining up –  extending from upstairs to the outside of the cafe.

This had green tea soft serve, normal green tea ice cream, kiwi, green tea biscuit, glutonous balls,  green. tea jelly, and bananas.

The Green-Tea Noodles!




How pretty is it? I think that is how far it got with me. The desserts were all very nice to look at but they all had an odd sour taste to it. Maybe I chose the wrong one? The Green-Tea noodles were lovely though. Especially on a really cold day.


Worth visiting for the novelty of it though. 🙂

Buying dessert in Japan is really a special experience. We found this place inside a large supermarket/ Myers type place in Hiroshima not too far from the JR station. From what I remember there is a  whole section of different vendors, dedicated to sweet stuff. It comes served in  heart shaped   crockery. Cute!

Yakiniku: Japanese Charcoal BBQ

We were in Ikebukuro on a cold night so we decided to have something hot to eat. Our choice was a Japanese Charcoal BBQ restaurant. Also very easy to order. Just point to the pictures, and you cook the meat yourself on the charcoal grill on your table.



I can’t remember exactly what we had but what I remember is: intestine, heart, liver, corn, pork sausages, pork ribs,  thinly sliced beef, bacon etc. I grew up eating the ‘regular’ pieces of meat as well as the other stuff, so the notion of eating  something like chicken liver is not off putting to me. It’s such a waste to just eat particular parts of an animal and not eat the rest, because they tend to be the more tender, and less bland cuts of meat.








We finished the meal with some berry ice cream and a sundae in waffle cone.
