Down the streets of Jiyugaoka…I love how there’s parking lots for strollers and bicycles…And here we are! One of our sole purposes in Jiyugaoka!
Peter Rabbit Cafe!Go up the stairs…Reception counter with an array of Peter Rabbit goodies…Was soooo tempted to buy these plates! We did buy the butter bread for ¥320 though. It’s quite delicious! Just a tad hard~We were ushered to our seats~So many rooms…And a huge Peter Rabbit was placed together with us for dining! Each and every table has them.There’s also some Peter Rabbit novels that came together with the menu~ It’s too bad we couldn’t read Japanese- It would be good entertainment if there’s little ones tagging along!A peek at the menu:Waiting time was decent considering the crowd~ Plus it gave us ample time to snap a lot of photos!
I ordered the beef steak and K the omurice~Taste was nothing to rave about, but not too bad either. I thought the mini Peter rabbit sponge cake was super cute, it’s a pity they don’t sell the baking mold!Look at all the tiny details~K couldn’t resist modeling the doll…Definitely a place I’ll love to bring Oliver if we return to Japan next time~ You can check out the website here.Moving on to our next destination… Yes! There’s another reason we came specially to Jiyugaoka~ *hint* It’s gotta do with baking!
We kept getting sidetracked by the pretty sights…
K watches a healthy amount of anime and he was marveling how this pic below reminded him exactly of those in tv shows.Even the Cath Kidston shop looks different from the ones in Singapore~And… Here we are!Cuoca!This shop is supposedly one of the must-visits for baking enthusiasts~Unfortunately, my non-existent Japanese skills made me fail to truly appreciate the otherwise exhilarating experience.
It’s pretty interesting though~ They have courses available~ And also a chocolate cellar~ How cool is that?I didn’t spend as much as I thought I would~ Mostly cos I didn’t understand the language~
Found the teddy bear bread mold I was looking for though~ And also some purple sweet potato powder and sakura powder~ Pictured below~ The Rilakkuma and panda molds were purchased at Kiddyland~And woohoo~ what’s upstairs?
