    Bread, Espresso &

    @ritty85がシェアした投稿

    “Bread, Espresso &” is a café and bakery 5-minutes’ walk from Omotesando Station and 15-minutes’ walk from Harajuku Station. This place has immense popularity and has people lining up outside in the morning before it opens. Their popular menu item is the French toast they serve, which is only available on weekdays in the morning and at teatime. The French toast is thick, the outside is crunchy, and the inside is soft. It’s known to even sell out very quickly, so you’d best be up early if you want a bite.

  • This Week’s Breakfast: French Toast at Bread, Espresso & in Omotesando

    17.September.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Once thing I do at least once a week without fail is treat myself out to some delicious food or dessert. It’s very important time well spend in order to live a happy life.

     

    Today, I went out for breakfast. I got up a little earlier than usual and headed to my favourite cafe, Bread, Espresso & which is located in Omotesando.

    It’s really easy to get to: it’s just a 5-minute walk from the A2 exit of Omotesando Station. Mornings are quiet in Omotesando, you don’t see many people walking around, so it feels like a completely different place compared to its busy streets during the day.

     

    When you enter the cafe, the smell of freshly-baked bread is the first thing to hit your senses. I sat down on one of the comfy sofa-seats and ordered myself the French toast breakfast set.

    There’s plenty of space between tables, so it’s an environment that’s easy to kick back and relax in.

    Inside and outside the cafe are cute signs with that day’s recommended menu items written on them. Next time I visit I think I’ll try one of the lunchtime desserts. That’s what I daydreamed about while waiting for my French toast to arrive.

    French Toast Set w/Drink – ¥800

    The French toast has a subtly sweet scent. It’s made with one of the cafe’s popular foods: the butter-loaded bread known as “Muu.”

     

    The toast’s crusts were nice and crunchy while the middle part was fluffy. The soft bread just melts in your mouth when taking a bite, and your taste buds are treated to the sweet flavour of the egg.

    The toast is delicious as it is, and you can totally leave it at that and enjoy your morning breakfast. But if you want to take it to the next level then you can drizzle the accompanying honey over the toast, giving the sweetness an even richer flavour.

    I’m usually not good with the characteristic sweet taste that honey has, or the bitterness layered into the overall flavour, but this honey was on the milder side so I really enjoyed it.

    After my food, I enjoyed the cappuccino the barista beautifully made for me which comes as part of the set.

     

    My 1-hour morning was spent even more relaxed than usual here. It’s much different from lunchtime which is a much busier and hurried time, so I could sink in my chair and really enjoy my drink too.

     

    Waking up early and enjoying a relaxing breakfast. That’s all I did, but it helped ease my busy mind and soul. I’m a simple person, and I think I’ll be able to face my week and work hard at it after this.

     

     

    Today’s Presents

    Futsu Furu Fig Sandwich – ¥420

    Futsu Uni Fruits – ¥400

    I wanted to share the happiness between friends and family on this fine day where I got to eat a delicious breakfast. These sandwiches are packed full of fruits―seasonal fruits which are best enjoyed right now. If you’re wondering what other sandwiches they sell then be sure to visit.

  • This Irresistible Tart is Made From Rare and Delicious Heart-Shaped Grapes

    11.September.2019 | FOOD

     Fruit tart specialist shop Qu’il fait bon will be selling a brand new kind of lovable tart which is made using a rare species of grape sourced from Yamanashi prefecture. The tart is currently selling at Grand Maison, Ginza and Hamamatsu. These will be available for a limited period only. 

    The tart is covered with incredibly rare “My Heart” grapes, which were developed by the grape research institute Shimura Budou Kenkyusho. Growing and cultivating these grapes was no easy task and took an incredible amount of time. There was only a short window of time available to harvest the produce and even then the harvest was small, so stocking up was very difficult. Despite the challenges, these tongue-tantalizing tarts are being sold this year, however, they are in limited supply. 

    Shine muscat grapes and loubell muscat grapes were crossbred to create this new kind of grape. The marvellous flavour of both parent grapes can be tasted. The new grapes have a high sugar content, a wonderful scent and the skin is wonderfully crunchy.  

     

    Take a bite into the special Yamanashi Grape My Heart Tart and you will be filled with a sophisticated fruity flavour. The adorable heart-shaped grapes are layered perfectly on top of a bed of white wine custard. You just have to try this delicious and beautiful tart!

  • The Leo Lionni cafe located at Sunday Brunch, MARRONNIER GATE GINZA 1 is remaining open for a longer period due to popular demand. The limited-time cafe will now be open until September 29. This cafe is themed around the world of Leo Lionni; a famous children’s picture book author whose illustrated stories include Swimmy and Frederick. Some of his works have even featured in school textbooks. After much anticipation, the cafe has released a brand new menu.

    The renewed menu includes three new items which are based on Frederick; the story which has been praised as Lionni’s best and most popular by both children and adults. A new Frederick-themed meal, cake and drink will be made available from July 20. When you order the Frederick-themed meal, the world of Frederick will unfold before you as if it has been cut straight out of the book and served up on a plate. There is no doubt that you will find these dishes so cute that you will not want to eat them.

    This is a baked cheesecake made using rhubarb and summer berries sourced from Hotaru Noen Tatsuno Farm, Nagano.

    Frederick Cheese Tea: ¥900 

    This is a pineapple iced tea with cream cheese and a Frederick biscuit perched on the top. The pineapple flavour is sweet yet slightly sour. This is bound to leave you feeling refreshed, making it the perfect summer drink.

    As you take your first bite of this high-quality snack, the scent of the matcha will reach you first, followed by the flavour of the matcha which spreads instantly through your mouth. The matcha is rich yet so light that it will instantly melt on your tongue. The pancakes sandwiching the large creamy matcha filling are both fluffy and thick. Cut it in half and you will not be able to resist. 

    This is a wonderful snack to sink your teeth into while you walk. If you want to keep your hands clean, you could even use a spoon to scoop out the filling. Enjoy it in your own unique way as it is tasty no matter how you choose to enjoy it!

    Matcha and Matcha Parfait ¥278

    As the name implies, this matcha parfait is the perfect opportunity to taste a variety of matcha flavours in one single tub. From the bottom, the cup is filled with matcha jelly, followed by matcha mousse, milk mousse and matcha whipped cream. Within the layers of matcha whipped cream you will discover a goldmine of matcha jelly and a dorayaki pancake core. 

    The matcha flavour of the jelly is quite weak, however its wobbly and springy texture contributes to the deliciousness of the parfait. The moderately sweet whipped cream combined with the matcha flavour is perfectly balanced. The milk mousse has a rich, milky flavour. It may be sweet, however the matcha mousse underneath it is slightly bitter, so enjoy them together for a delicious overall flavour. 

     

    The fluffy matcha mousse and rich matcha is unbelievably delicious. The dorayaki centre is soft, fluffy and thick which accents the flavour. Overall, the parfait is not overpoweringly sweet and the matcha flavour is gentle on your tongue.  

    Uji Matcha Cream Mochi: ¥110 (before tax )

    Uji Matcha Cream Mochi is a soft, thin and chewy dough that is rolled out thin and then wrapped around a large spoon of uji matcha cream. This is always a popular pick. Last time, they served the uji matcha chocolate mochi. I wonder how the Uji Matcha Cream Mochi will taste!

    This time, the mochi has a slightly more springy texture. The outside is chewy, yet the inside is gooey. This mochi cake is bursting with matcha so you can really enjoy the matcha flavour. The bitter matcha flavour is perfectly balanced with a touch of sweetness. This dessert even come with a fork so that you don’t have to get your hands dirty. 

    I know, it is hard to choose which matcha dessert to try. Convenience stores are always refreshing the varieties of goods they sell, so if you are particularly attracted to any of the desserts mentioned above, it is probably best to try them before they are replaced.

  • Described as the “most interesting sweets shop in the world”, PAPABUBBLE sells a range of cute and fun confections. On July 1, PAPABUBBLE will open a Candy Art Museum on basement floor 2 of GINZA SIX.

     

    PAPABUBBLE has set up shop in over 30 cities worldwide. The main shop will contain art pieces made from candy. Considering all the candy shops that are currently out there in the world, nobody has ever seen anything quite like this before. 

    The museum contains around 20 different ornaments that are edible sweets. Visitors who wish to purchase the ornaments can do so. Besides the standard sweets, the display items and range of sweets for sale will be changed every day. 

     

    When the museum opens in July, visitors will be able to enjoy the wonderful texture and flavour of candy lampshades, enjoy the artistic and charming glow of candy mushrooms, and gaze in bewilderment at an antique vase baumkuchen cake. 

    To commemorate its grand opening, customers who spend more than ¥5,000 (after tax) on display items or on the sweets shop range will receive either a soft gummy brain or soft gummy dentures. This campaign will be running throughout July. 

    Along with the grand opening of the art museum, there will also be Ginza-limited products on sale that are completely unique to the Ginza branch. The lineup includes sweets made from ingredients that are rarely seen in Japan. This includes colourful and fruity chocolate such as rocky roads and soft candy sweets made from snow sugar. PAPABUBBLE will also sell souvenirs that represent Ginza such as Kirihako boxes which are beautiful boxes made from wood. 

     

    If you are in Tokyo, you just cannot miss this museum that is overflowing with originality.

  • The Location of This Bloody Rose Tokyo Ghoul Restaurant in Ginza is a Secret

    08.June.2019 | FOOD / MOVIE / SPOT

    To celebrate the upcoming July 19 release of Tokyo Ghoul S, Japanese movie studio and production company Shochiku is opening an ‘immersive’ blood-themed Tokyo Ghoul restaurant from July 5 to August 4. The location of the restaurant is being kept a secret, but it is somewhere in Ginza, and is wrapped in 40,000 roses.

    The Ghoul Restaurant makes an appearance in the film itself as a secret eatery where ghouls go to dine. This immersive recreation is a combination of interactivity, gourmet food, and performance and display put on by professionals.

    Much of the interactive content that can be found in the restaurant was produced by AFROMANCE, such as the “SAKURA CHILL BAR by Saga,” an indoor hanami experience with a littering of 1.2 million rose petals.

    The entire restaurant will be steeped in an overwhelming deep crimson.

    The gourmet ghoul menu was conceived by Hideo Yamamoto, a chef at the famous modern French restaurant Restaurant Air.

    The creative menu brings together taste and beauty by using luxurious and high quality ingredients such as foie gras.

    Performances will be carried out by live entertainment company Out Of Theater, film director and producer Issei Shibata, and video game and and visual effects company Polygon Magic. From the moment you enter to when you are dining to when you leave, you will be thrown into the world of the Ghoul Restaurants as a string of actors do the unpredictable.

    Fans of Tokyo Ghoul aren’t going to want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Details on what you need to do next can be found below.

For a limited time only, the pop-up shop will be selling kakigori (shaved ice) with a variety of adventurous flavours on the menu. The kakigori will be served with red bean paste made at TORAYA CAFÉ, which is located on floor B3. 

     

    Last August when Ginza Sony Park opened, the red bean paste kakigori became very popular, leading to its return this year. This is your chance to experience unique flavours such as red bean paste and alcohol and even red bean paste and fruit. These flavours are limited to this pop up shop.

     

    (※) Contains alcohol

     

    Blueberry: ¥756, Blueberry Condensed Milk: ¥864, Limoncello: ¥540 (tax included)

    Available: Tues 4th ー Sun 30th June

    The Blueberry and Blueberry Condensed Milk kakigori are new flavours and are both served with red bean paste. The sweet yet tangy syrup is made from ripe blueberries and is generously poured over the kakigori. We recommend you enjoy this along with the carefully balanced condensed milk. The Limoncello red bean paste kakigori uses an Italian liqueur, creating a refreshing flavour.

     

    Hassaku orange: ¥756, Hassaku Orange Condensed Milk: ¥ 864, Calvados (※): ¥540 (tax included)

    Available: Mon 1st ー Wed 31st July

    Two flavours of kakigori shaved ice are having their debut at Ginza Sony Park; the Hassaku Orange and the Hassaku Orange with Condensed Milk. The hassaku syrup is made from hassaku oranges sourced from Hiroshima. Both flavours are also served with sweet red bean paste that perfectly balances out the tangy orange.

     

    The Calvados kakigori is made using brandy sourced from France which is stored to ferment in an oak barrel. The oaky scent and the fresh appley flavour perfectly balance each other out.

     

     

    Strawberry: ¥756, Strawberry Condensed Milk: ¥864, Mulled Wine (※): ¥540 (tax included)

    Available: Thurs 1st Aug ー Sun 1st Sept

    Selectively bred strawberries were used to make the syrup for this strawberry kakigori. This is also served with red bean paste, which is perfect along with the sweet and sour strawberry syrup. The Mulled Wine Kakigori is made with red wine spiced with lemons, oranges, cinnamon and cloves for a new, fruity flavour.

     

     

    Condensed Milk: ¥702, Matcha: ¥702, Matcha Condensed Milk: ¥810, Rum: (※) ¥540 (including tax )

    Available: Tues 4th June ー Sun 1st Sept

     

    Besides the standard red bean paste kakigori, the rum flavour is also returning this year! Sugarcane sourced from Okinawa is used to make the rum. When mixed with the blackstrap molasses sugar,  it becomes a flavour that adults just cannot resist.

     

    Escape the heat and enjoy a moment of supreme bliss with these delicious shaved ice flavours!
