gelateria marghera

My foodie partner arrived Thursday noon but suffered the consequences of Tokyo’s confusing train system. After 3 hours (what should have been an hour and a half) on the train, he finally arrived at the hotel. It was a cold day with November snow for the first time in over 40 years in Tokyo!

Our first stop and main reason for going to Tokyo again was to order rings. Last summer we found rings we liked and I found that the designer had her own atelier in Ebisu. We headed to the area and after some debating chose a design we liked. Since there were a couple of hours before dinner, we did some shopping at the department store before looking for a restaurant. Unfortunately, many of the restaurants we tried were full with reservations but we found a slightly fancy yakitori place with open seats. After my foodie partner experienced his first yakitori izakaya, dessert time!

I already knew what I wanted since I had been eyeing this gelato place since my last summer visit. They serve gelato but also ice cream sandwiches half dipped in chocolate. I debated between the marron and pistachio but chose the marron since it’s a limited seasonal flavor. The cookie was crunchy and slightly flakey like a digest biscuit. And the ice cream was chock full of marron pieces. So delicious.. I would like one right now.


木曜日のお昼頃、彼氏は東京に到着したが電車が複雑でホテルまで1時間半のはずが3時間になってしまいました。その日はとても寒く40年ぶりに11月に東京に雪が降りました!

今回また東京に来た理由は指輪の注文。去年の夏はIdeeで好きなデザインの指輪を見つけ、調べたらデザイナーは恵比寿でアトリエを持っていました。直接デザイナーから注文したいと思い、アトリエに向かい、迷いながら指輪のデザインを決めました。夜ご飯まで少し時間があったので、駅近くのデパートで買い物をしました。残念ながら、近くの美味しそうなレストランはほとんど予約済みだったけど、おしゃれな焼き鳥屋で空席がありました。彼氏が初めての焼き鳥屋を体験した後デザート!

以前から食べてみたかったジェラト屋に速攻GO〜!ここはジェラトだけじゃなく、ジェラトアイスケーキやアイスサンドを売っています。マロンとピスタチオで迷ったけど、期間限定のマロンをチョイス。クッキーはサクサクでダイジェストビスケットっぽい。アイスも栗がゴロゴロ。美味しかった…今食べたい。
