gontran cherrier

For our last full day, we grabbed lunch at the Gontran Cherrier in Parco. The hotel provided us breakfast, but we were in the mood to try something else. I tried the food here before at one of the stores in Tokyo, but the green tea scone here is amazing. It can’t be compared to the one at the bakery near my house. My foodie partner ate the kouign-amann and french toast. Both good but the kouign-amann was crunchier than I expected. I ate the almond tart on another day which was filled with almond paste! They have a couple stores in Seoul too which I need to check out.

After breakfast, we met up with my friend’s sister to receive our wedding rings from Cherry Brown. Unfortunately, my foodie partner’s ring was too small so it been sent back to be adjusted. But thank you for delivering our rings to us!

For lunch we went to a sushi place in Hakata station. Eating sushi in Japan at a proper restaurant is DELICIOUS! And the price can be reasonable too. After a tiring day of last minute gift shopping, the day ended with dinner at an izakaya near our hotel. Even though our hotel was disappointing, it was a great area for quiet upscale izakayas and restaurants. The food was delicious and my partner enjoyed a local sake tasting.

I hope next time I visit Fukuoka, I’ll get out of the city center.
