PALETAS! Want healthy fruity ice-cream?? GO HERE!

Super duper famous right now is this ice-cream parlor in Kichijoji called “Paletas”! Being featured in so many tv shows, gourmet news and websites, as well as magazines, Paletas is well known for its variety of flavors (almost 40 choices!) and its philosophy of using only PURE REAL fruits and NO additives. In simple words, what you see is what you eat. >__< Mixed with base flavors such as fruit juice, gelato, chocolate, caramel, etc….WHOLE fruits are added to give you the best sensation once biting into it. For example, from one photo I saw, a whole piece of strawberry is buried into the chocolate ice-cream stick…Hmmmm…. Another one, tropical fruits are frozen just like that so that their real flavors can shine.

But you'd better be there super early in the morning if you want to try all the flavors. Most of the rare ones are sold out as fast as famous concert tickets lol

Can't wait to try it out!!!!

Biscuit Sandwich at Chelsea Cafe ・チェルシーカフェのあの有名なビスケットサンド!

Those of you who live in Tokyo and watch lots of TV might already have heard of this new craze in Tokyo. It’s the biscuit sandwich menu from Chelsea cafe (famous TV location is at Shibuya Mark City branch)! Let’s follow this and know a bit more about it!

Okay, maybe the same “Chelsea Cafe the Biscuit Sand” might sound a bit weird in the end as the full name should be Sandwich instead of Sand (which is directly and literally derived from “San-do” in Japanese). But I believe the name doesn’t really matter if you were there at the table looking at the plates on your nearby table. This signature dish is special in that it doesn’t use BREAD that’s normally associated with sandwich, instead it uses biscuits to give you the crispy and cracking sound you want at your first bite. This menu came about from Portland, US, itself, and made a big sensation in Japan recently. 

Let’s look closer at the main star: American biscuits filled with juicy original chicken nuggets, crispy fried bacon, and melting cheese, topped with creamy shrimp sauce AND paired with a big plate of salad. All for 980 yen?? in Tokyo?? This price sounds too good to be true for the amount. But then again…if this is what makes people queue in lines for hours, it is worth it. 

I almost forgot, they also turn this biscuit sandwich into dessert menu! There’s no way biscuits can go wrong with whipped cream and all those sweet fruits, isn’t it? ;D

画像After making frequent appearances on so many TV programs from Nihon-Terebi (日本テレビ) like “shuu-ichi” 『シューイチ』on Sunday morning, 『スッキリ!!』and『ZIP』on Weekdays morning and 『はなまるマーケット』on TBS-Terebi (TBSテレビ), etc. I’m sure you might want to call up to make some reservations or go there early to queue up – Japanese style!
