Sea to table?

I was in Asia for a little while and stopped through Tokyo for a little eating. Before my trip things were a bit nutso so I didn't really have time to plan things to a T, which meant getting lost multiple times and having to ask many people for help. Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers!

After some crazy misadventures, we finally found Chatei Hatou, a super kawaii coffee shop tucked away near Shibuya

Their ceremoniously precise technique has inspired the likes of Blue Bottle. Look at the blooming!

If I'm within the vicinity of a Pierre Herme, it is a must. Their chocolate salon in Aoyama was fun, but it can't beat the pastries in their Paris St. Germain bakery.

And of course, I needed to redeem my last experience at Hidemi Sugino and try again. Success! First in line this time.
