Searching for coffee in Omote sando

Walking among the crowds and multiple lines for pancakes and popcorn shops in Omotesando, we managed to find the  Identity Coffee which supposedly served Intelligentsia Coffee, only it was closed...! So, for the plan B, we made our way to Omotesando Koffee. As expected, a line of trendy people from domestic and overseas, after about 30 min or so, we got our coffee! Then we walked around in such a nice weather, checking out here and there, walked through Nishi Azabu to Roppongi, then took bus back home. We walked more than 12,300 steps today.

Hiroshima style okonomi yaki for lunch

Oh yeah!

Breakfast at Clinton St. Baking Company


So, we decided to walk over to Clinton St. Baking Company in Omote Sando for breakfast. We got there about 15 min before opening, already 3 people were in line. They opened at 8 a.m., people started showing up, by the time we left, there were a line of people in the outside, in the rain. Off course not cheap, though the portion was very big, and very American! I could not finish my egg Benedict, and am not still hungry at all by 3 p.m....!

Apple pie from Granny Smith Aoyama

Treat to myself from apple pie using Granny Smith apple from Granny Smith Aoyama.

Well earned lunch at Kua'aina

Woke up 4 a.m., started working at 6 a.m. this morning, for assisting dressing up kimono for graduation of Aoyama University, as a member of my kimono class. We finished dressing up 333 females in kimono and hakama, which is like a skirt in kimono style. I ended up helping cloak as I was still not confident enough to dress them up in average 15 min.... So, by 1:30 p.m. dressing up part was over, and I left. Boy I was thirsty and hungry!
