Snippets of the Menu (if you are interested)
It sells both matcha and houjicha parfait and as usual, I picked the matcha parfait (1020 yen) Instead of simply warabi mochi, the matcha is assembled with yomogi gluten, a kind of Japanese ingredient that is normal found in savoury food such as nabe (hotpots) or miso soup.
What's good: Not too crowded on weekdays. Less touristy than typical hotspots Gion Tsujiri or Kyo Hayashiya. Ambience. Quiet. Wide range of food as it also serves traditional Japanese breakfast (rice+raw egg+ pickles), lunch and ACAI Bowl (a pity didn't get to try it this time) What's not: super slow service if you come on days (eg. Sunday) when the entire place is only run by one auntie (She is a superwoman). Is it possible to know their staff schedule? Unfortunately mission impossible.
