Bridge Coffee, Kappabashi

Had some coffee here while in Kappabashi kitchen town, though I forgot to take a photo of it. It was ok; not particularly special.

I think what people seem to like is their ice cream, which I didn’t try.

Soba House 大自然 上野店, Taito

Found this while walking around in Taito. Apologies for the potato-quality photo with unintentional sun flares.

I think it had just opened; we were the first & only ones inside.

Since I’ve had a soba + tempura meal elsewhere, I decided to try it here too. I still think NishiAnn‘s is better. This style seems more like a beer batter, but it’s hard to tell. It wasn’t very crispy; instead it was soggy and limp. That kind of ruined it for me.

The soba and accompanying soup was normal. I’m don’t care much for pickles generally.

This was better than the tempura + soba. Can’t remember what it is called though.

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.
