mont blanc

mogumogu_112516xx.jpgSince we still had time after returning from Kamakura, I wanted to check out Jiyugaoka – famous for dessert shops. But since it was already around 4pm, tea time was ending and many of the popular cakes were gone at the shops I wanted to try. So we headed to Mont Blanc which supposedly was the first cake shop in Japan to serve mont blanc cake. My foodie partner and I shared the chestnut tart with tea. I thought it was ok but my partner thought it was pretty good. We rested for a while at the cafe which has a large seating area but later this turned out to be a mistake. When we decided to head out for dinner, we first stopped by a baking store further delaying our time. By the time we started looking, all the restaurants were full with reservations! I think we walked around for almost an hour in the cold. Going back to the hotel would have taken too long but now I know, there’s almost nowhere to eat in Jiyugaoka! We should’ve just bought food from a grocery store or convenience store instead. Instead, we had a sad dinner at a kaitenzushi restaurant. Not good…


鎌倉から戻った時、時間にまだ余裕があったので、ずっと行って見たかった自由が丘に。でもついた時には4時過ぎだったので、人気のケーキ屋さんは品切れ間近。最終的にモンブランに行くことにしました。季節限定の利平栗タルトを頼み、彼と半分こ。下のタルトはサクサクで美味しかったけど、私的には栗ペーストの量がちょっと物足りないかな〜。彼は満足していましたけど。カフェは席が多いので、絵本のアイディアを考えながらゆっくりしてたが、これが間違えでした。夜ご飯を探しに行こうと思ったら、cuocaにも寄ったので、時間が余計遅くりました。その後どのレストランに入っても、予約で満席!1時間近く寒い中歩き回ってました。ホテルに戻るのには時間がかかりすぎるから自由が丘で探そうとしたのに、食べるところがない!スーパーかコンビニで何か買えばよかったのに、回転寿しでイマイチな夜ご飯を食べてしまった…
