En Ginza Cafe

August 4, 2011

This spacious, welcoming hangout seems suitable for resting the feet after a shopping spree, but while we like its casual vibe, we have mixed feelings about its fusion food.

Seaweed-flavored fries with wasabi dip. A simple snack; not sure how to describe something that fades in the memory almost immediately after it's consumed.

Spaghetti in tomato sauce with mussels, scallops, prawns & squid. Supposed to be topped with shirasu and laced with sake, but the shirasu at least appeared absent. What remained was a run-of-the-mill pasta recipe. To be fair, there's much more on En Ginza Cafe's menu, so maybe other items might taste better.

Bread fans should nonetheless make a beeline for this cafe, since lots of doughy delights line its shelves, including freshly baked rolls stuffed with pumpkin paste.

Blue cheese bun. An agreeably stinky alternative to conventional cheese-topped buns.

Coffee art! Say Hello, Kitty, to this latte. Or was it a cappuccino?

Can't recognize this winking character, but it was cute all the same.
