But the weather is finally turning from "jungle" setting to "pleasant." Yesterday it didn't get much over 24 C and today it looks to be hitting 25 C and sunny. Since Tuesdays and Thursdays are my new "go out for lunch" times, I thought I'd bring my bike in today and use it to reach a bit further afield and review a new place.

Then the tea came. I had asked for hot tea, expecting the usual tiny cup of hot black tea they serve typically. Instead, I got a small pot of earl grey (the tag said Ahmadi from London...neat). I'm not a huge earl grey fan, but I like hot flavored liquid with milk and sugar, so I figured it would be fine. There were 3 cups of tea in that teapot! It was very pleasant to sit there and drink my tea slowly as I passed the rest of the lunch hour.
While I was there, a small family came in and all ordered the Navy Curry set (also 1200 yen). It wasn't huge, but the smells emanating from their plates were delicious! I was regretting my choice and looking forward to coming back already. Also, one of them had the coffee for their drink. When I heard the grinder spin up, I knew this place probably knew what they were doing. Sure enough, the delicious smell of coffee affirmed that intuition.
This place is a Cafe with an emphasis on that aspect I think. For that, it is quite nice. The meal I had today was just Ok, but I hope to come back some time and see if their curry merits a Very Good. And to try the coffee.
