Onigiriyaon, Setagaya

On the way to NishiAnn Cafe, we passed this onigiri shop and decided to stop by on the way back.

I really liked the onigiri here. I would come back.

Since we only bought one, the shop owner couldn’t let me leave empty handed. So, she made a miniature one for me! Lol.

Bear Pond Espresso, On The Corner, Shibuya

After not liking some of the more traditional coffee houses, I went in search of some third wave coffee joints.

View of the smoking section,  from the non-smoking section. Well, not really, but it smelled that way.

I tried espresso, but in the form of an iced latte (pictured, right). Also got an iced coffee with milk (pictured, left) because who doesn’t like double-fisting coffee amirite? Really, it was to try both forms.

I thought both were ok, not particularly special given the hype. Maybe I’m spoiled by the coffee in SF.

Kohikan, Taito

Found this chain while walking around, featuring charcoal roasted coffee and pictures of siphon coffee on the front window. Traditional, second-wave coffee.

The coffee is darkly roasted, and costs more than the toast IIRC. I didn’t like it; I won’t go back.
