It was my first time to having lunch at the famous café and restaurant, Kanakana.

Kanakana is always crowded.
I got my seat smoothly, though it was lunch time.
After I entered, other customers were waiting for their seats. Some of them were standing for waiting. Lucky me!

There were University students, madam, Ohitorisama ( is like single diners. Some men/women like to the café/restaurant alone. ). Everyone, of course I too, feel free at the café. I love the calmly atmosphere of the shop, everyone maybe like it.

The shop is in traditional folk house which built 90 years ago. Of course, it was rebuilding reconstruct for safety. Almost of Japanese people like this building, because traditional living room, traditional ceiling, and traditional windows, these brings back old memories.
I was awfully comfortable!

This stove is nice, isn’t this? I love it 
I bought same stove at internet shopping site, Amazon.
It is in my office today.




I ordered the popular lunch meal, Kanakana-gohan (original lunch set at shop). SBSH0460.jpg

Fried sea basses, boiled vegetable with soy sauce, cibols with vinegar and miso and so on…

The coffee/teas (many kinds) were served after lunch.
I will eat curry next time
There is no picture, though the rest room is comfortable for me.

And… my best shop is…

I love 1st shop of Kanakana, so 2nd shop of that would be wonderful, I think.
2nd shop of Kanakana has different atmosphere from 1st one.
It was like Northern Europe. There were stylish furniture and painting but it had hearty welcome. What a fashionable café!

It was like a…
CAFÉ FOR ADULTlol
It said “Sorry, we are not for with children”.
Year, I got good vibrations!

2nd shop is famous for delicious taste of coffee.
Also, simple cakes (no whip creams, no strawberries) looked yummy!
…but I like many whip creams and strawberries cakes. lol

These were cakes of today (they were not same each day).


SBSH0461.jpg
Wow! Lovely cakes!
They had tiramisu and delicious teas too.

The coffee and cake were really delicious!
Foods were much with the atmosphere of 2nd shop.
I am lucky because the shop is near my office.

I got a lucky card of there.
It is used 1st and 2nd shops.
I can got points soon

Ashibi-no-Sato at Nara-town

time:2012/02/16 15:58:43

I went to Ashibi-no-Sato for lunch.
It has been here since the Edo period.
*Edo period: the 260-year span and the establishment of a bakufu government in Edo (now Tokyo) in 1603.

071.jpg
The leaflet of the shop said,

≪You can see and feel difference whenever you visit, so we can give you fresh feelings every time.≫

I like this

069.jpgThis shop sells many kind of pickles, including Naraduke (vegetables pickled in sake lees) and soooo lovely goods.

Also, you can eat pickles in the back room. There is a Japanese restaurant.
070.jpg 061.jpg
This restaurant is in a traditional Japanese house.
The traditional houses in Nara-town are usually rebuilt for cafés.
Not build new one. Let’s rebuild old one. 
Every customer is relaxed like being in house. (*^^*)

062.jpg
The famous lunch set, Otsukemono Gozen (12 kinds of pickles, rice, miso-soup, miso-baked fish, vegetables boiled down in soy)
064.jpg
I had never eaten 12 kinds of pickles at a time!
There was a piece of Naraduke, of course.
Wow, they were sooo interesting! Lovely!

Every food was amazing!!!
The miso-baked fish was wonderful taste (if you like miso, you will like this),
There was a piece of sudachi (species of Japanese citrus) in miso-soup, so soup was not strong.
The vegetables boiled down in soy were soft because of boiling for long time.
And also, help yourself for rice and tea!

Yammy!!XD
I didn’t know to become better taste if a piece of sudachi was in miso-soup, though I love miso-soup. lol

There is the eating space outside.
The inside of the restaurant is a traditional Japanese house, but the outside of that is a modern café. The shop has different faces!!

Year, there is café area, so you should come here with friend if spring will come!
It is winter… it is toooo cold to eat outside. lol

Nico-style at Nara-town

time:12/02/21 12:38:35


I went to the Japanese modern style café, Nico-style: D

nicostyle.jpg
These days, the cafés in Nara-town are very cute and lovely. 

nicostyle3.jpg
There is eat-in space upstairs as grand floor.
They treat lovely goods near the entrance.
013.jpg
The goods on the wall… what a smart way to use the wall!
I want to take advantage of my simple wall to be fashionably.

Nico-style is not only the café, but customers are able to enjoy fresh vegetables that are harvest in Nara by having lunch set. The lunch set is only one type; therefore Nico-style is for chatting with some coffee.


002.jpg 005.jpg
(Left) three hors d’oeuvres, Nara Vegetables.
(Right) Yamato pork in the grated apple and soybean paste sauce
    with fresh vegetable from Soni Heights (Soni-Kougen) , tea gruel, Miwa vermicelli in Noppei soup.
*Noppei soup: soup with fried tofu, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, sweet potatoes and daikon flavored with salt or soy sauce and thickened with potato starch.
(This was my first time to have Noppei soup.)

Of course, there were some Naraduke (vegetables pickled in sake lees). If you put these in tea gruel, you will enjoy different taste! Yammy!

These ingredients are come from Nara area.
You can feel Nara!

I had green tea latte with chiffon cake after the lunch.

And…

Wow!
010.jpg
What a lovely deer!
Having lovely eyes, lovely horn, and lovely face!! I love it!
It is soooo cute, isn’t it? xoxoxoxo

His eyes change day by day, for example, sleeping, with glasses…
I want to watch all of them!

There are also another characters, the great image of Buddha and the form of Nara.

I want to meet them, so I will go there again : D

Yotsuba caf'e at Nara-town

time:12/02/24 15:21:31

I like to walk around my office.
Nara-town has many traditional buildings. They make me feel excited every times.

I wanted to buy some snacks at a convenience store. I was going to there, then I discovered a café, ≪Yotsuba Café≫ by chance(*^^*)Luckily!
The information of this café is on almost magazines which introduce about Nara-town.

23g.jpg
What a wonderful Japanese traditional building! Cute!

Yotsuba café also sell some hand-made goods.
23a.jpg 23d.jpg
I love these! xoxox
These gave me a nostalgic vibe XD
23b.jpg
The stove at my office is similar with this one. (^^*)
The clerk lent me some blankets for keeping warm. (^^)

The main menu of the café is curries.
The famous meal between customers isYotsuba’s special curry meal.

“I should eat this famous meal…but…I cannot decide…
Finally, I ordered one toast with cheese and hashed meat sauce because I wanted to eat bread. lol
23e.jpg
Hashed meat was tasty like umami…
The cheese on the hashed meat was melting…
Then, the basils were fit with these tastes!

23f.jpg
cheese cake of green tea with Yatsuhashi (cinnamon-flavored crepe) & tea

The tea with the shape of four leaf clover!
The cinnamon-flavored crepes were mystery texture.
The cheese cake was strong, so it was matched with plain vanilla ice-cream.

I will have the special curry next time. (*゜ё゜*)

KAI at Nara-town

time: 12/02/06 14:33:42

SBSH0492.jpg”KAI” is small business space. It has a café, a flower shop, some goods store and an art gallery. There is a tourist information center. HP
It located the center of Nara-town, but it looks a modern building. You will be not also expressed it is at Nara-town.

I went to one of these shops, PAO at Nara-town.
What a lovely café!
SBSH0494.jpg


The front width of the shop is narrow, but the shop has depth and was like so-calls ‘sleeping places of an eel’.
SBSH0471.jpg
Table seats for 5~6 customers and counter seats

It is high ceilinged room and that has like the southern interiors. SBSH04651.jpg

SBSH0470.jpg
There are many large south windows.
The foliage plants grow up.

unpolished rice by the kitchen garden and coffee beans by the kitchen garden are famous.
PAO is not only at Nara-town, but also at Oshikuma which is popular with many customers.

I ordered Black curry with unpolished rice. (Only 15 meals sets a day)
SBSH04671.jpg
The Black curry is made from boiling some fruits and spices with sauté of meats and onions for long time.
It tasted sweetness, umami and hot in turn.
It was difficult to cook at houses.

My friend ordered “sandwich made from unpolished rice”.
SBSH04681.jpg
The soup tasted good too.

There are many deserts made from unpolished rice.
The sweet made with unpolished rice: zenzai looks delicious.
