Like for instance the slice of cheesecake on top, it's Green Tea Cheesecake. If you happen to love or like teas and green tea in particular, you will definitely love this. It's a cheesecake alright, except it has a nutty, earthy and the slightly bitter after-taste with a hint of floral. Not too sweet which I like but creamy and lightly cheesy. So the question is, did Mom-gastronomer and Dad-gastronomomer liked it? And the answer is: We LOVE it!
I was on a predicament actually when it was my turn to choose a drink. I know their triffle teas are being raved for, but I mis-looked on it and ordered instead Chiru, yogurt Chiru. Perhaps we need to go back so we can check on that.
I found Choco-mint Yogurt Chiru interesting but a bit odd really now. So I got a cold Japanese Choco Yogurt Chiru. A perfect health-giving bacilli rich drink that's chocolatey. Careful sipping too much and don't get too excited like me, or you'll end up getting brain-freezed. So it's a mix of yogurt, chocolate, cream and love!

It was a rainy day that time when we met, I came first and ordered the lavander-infused coffee. I was asked if I want it to be decaf. And there it was my hot Decaf Lavander Cappucinno, The picture of it was the one on the top most part of this blog. This one however is what my friend Julie had, Cappuccino.
Chicken al Pesto Pasta, may I say is one of the best Pesto pasta I've tried, not even Bravo can beat it. I like the flat pasta and lots of gooey greens on it. The grilled chicken which was tender and right on the salt complemented well with the whole dish.. The sauce was rather oily but, fret not let;s just hope it's EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil), which I thinks so. Please I dare not say the toast was also good, or was it garlic bread. The pasta serving was good enough for two.
|Green Tea and Chocolate Ganache. I guess by now you might say that I also love green tea. Well I also love unfamiliar sights of pastries or food for that matter. Green tea happens to be the best-selling tea in Japan and China. Not only for the know remedies and relaxation effects it brings out, you also have to have an acquired taste to foods that have it. The slice however is a butter-cake flavored with green tea with a caramel crunch topper over a velvety layer of chocolate ganache. The butter cream icing as well is flavored with matcha green tea. Don;t you want to bite into that layers of green tea cakes and chocolate ganache? It's heavenly, let me tell you, earthy-heavenly!|
