oHacorte, a cafe specializes in fruit tartes, is the most popular dessert spots in Okinawa. It is popular among the locals and the tourists that it has 4 locations in Okinawa (5 included the store in Naha airport), and they are slightly different in styles. We went to the one in Minatogawa, which is the original store, after grabbing coffee at Cerrado Coffee.
My friend and I had been following Tasty for a while. The videos that they made for each recipe seem so simple that anyone can do it. Therefore, we decided that it is time to try it out! We chose 3 recipes that intrigued us the most, and this Chocolate Almond Braid was one of it, however, with a twist. ;)
In my previous Le Parloir post, I have expressed how much I love high tea. It has become a tradition whenever I visit Hong Kong. In case you don't know, Hong Kong was colonized by the Britain, hence a huge part of their culture is strongly influenced by the British. Locating in the Clipper Lounge of Mandarin Oriental, the afternoon tea set is the best one I've ever had so far in Hong Kong (price-wise is reasonable too!).
After school finished in April, I visited Toronto for a few days before my graduation in June! Kitten and the Bear, a dainty, 1940s-style tea room locating in the area Parkdale of Toronto, has been on my to-visit list for a long time. It's an artisanal shop, and a cafe as well. I first had their scone, thanks to my friend Ashley, and I loved it! And thanks to my other friend, Karen, whom drove me there! :)
I am attracted deeply by those British 3-tier afternoon tea set. It has always been a must whenever I visit Hong Kong. For the past few years in Montreal, I've been looking for a decent spot, but surprisingly, it wasn't as easy as I thought! Even the classy Ritz-Carlton's high tea disappointed my friend and me greatly. Le Parloir is a cute, charming, and cozy tea room located near Metro Mont-Royal. The European inspired decors levels up the experience, as you would feel like you are in Europe while sipping your tea with Victorian china. The first thing I noticed as I entered was the flowers on each table!
