GUCCI Cafe in Ginza, Tokyo


seeing the decreasing rates of blog post year by year...
I feel so bad to myself...
so many pending posts in my back log...
after my Taiwan posts, I no longer blog about my holidays no more...
I'm Sorry...  :(

and I feel it's a big waste if I just neglect my Japan trip like this...
thus, I will update bit by bit today onwards... *try*

my Tokyo trip was last November (2012)...
it was a very packed but fruitful trip.. I gonna split into many posts...

this is about Ginza... 
one of the unforgettable day... hehe

Ginza (銀座) is Tokyo's most famous upmarket shopping, dining and entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, night clubs and cafes.

after brunch at super yummi Tsijiki Fish Market (which I gonna blog in another post), we go to Ginza by foot...
it's not far at all, 15-20 mins walking time only...

3 mission to go Ginza
1) have a great tea session at Gucci Cafe, only available in Tokyo
2) shopping in Gu - sub-brand of Uniqlo, only available in Japan
3) visit Abercrombie~ woo hoo ~~~ I would say their 'qualities' are best in wOrld !!!   hehe

it was a multi-storey Gucci Building...
the cafe is located at 4th floor...
entered Gucci Store, they will lead you to Gucci Lift back then after letting them know that you're heading to the cafe...

it's not a very big place, but cozy and elegant...
big numbers of us separated into two 'biggest' tables...


everything is gucci... 
even the leather menu...



there are 2 sets available daily which I think it's quite worth...
because the desserts and foods are REALLY good !
with first class services !

set 1 - High Tea Set 
any desserts with any drinks, 2,000 yen (which is around RM 60)

set 2 - Set Lunch 
any drinks, choose one main course (seafood pasta / risotto / and I can't remember d), any dessert
3,000 yen (which is around RM 90)

we all had high tea set, due to we just had super satisfied lunch at Tsujiki Fish Market...


Watermelon Juice 


Gucci Cafe served Good Coffee...
good aroma, smooth froth and steamed milk...

Caffe Cappuccino and Caffe Latte


stupid me, ordered Black Coffee


this is the BEST Tiramisu I ever had in my life YET, so far...
no drama... 
I don't eat every type of cake, very choosy..
and Tiramisu never my thing BUT I finished this whole piece by myself and couldn't get enough of it !
so so so nice....
10 times nicer than Bella Italia's !



Pannacotta, very nice too !! 
and the serving so beautiful and efforts...


Caffe Machiatto, served with a piece of Gucci Chocolate !!


by selling, the chocolate is around rm 10 per piece...





vain ppl must self-shot in Gucci Restroom...



we had a wonderful time at Gucci, and continue our second and third mission at Ginza...




after some crazee time at GU...
walked down further, we saw this handsome, macho guy standing outside a building and we knew we have reached ABERCROMBIE Tokyo !!!!

omg !!!!! 
I fell for him instantly !  *shy*


they give away free Polaroid picture with Abercrombie paper frame to customer...
love his 6-8 packs ! oh my~


all of us full of excitement and very satisfied with our Ginza half day tour !!!

The Mugshot Cafe, GeorgetOwn

it's a happee day tOday~ 
guess where I heading for lunch ???


familiar ?


woo hoo... 
I managed to persuade my colleague to fetch me to downtown...
lunch at The Mugshot Cafe !!!!
wahahhahaha...


it's right next to Rainforest Bakery @ Chulia Street...
apparently, both are running by the same owner... 
(can assure the good quality of breads / pastries)
I'm always a big fan of their healthy grain breads and pastries...
4-5 years backed, they actually operated a Guest House too, named Olive Spring, if anyone remembers...
not long after my one and only breaky visit, and it was closed down...

* click * for reference... 

when I heard about The Mugshot Cafe, I was so excited !
the owner told me, they will soon operate back the guest house at the upper levels...
still under planning stage...
stay tune, peeps...


a lot of full length mirrors to snap snap ! haha


foods and beverages menu are on board...
place order at counter and pay later before you leave with happee hearts...


apart from their signature Bagels, muffins, croissants, cakes and yogurts are available too...


I so wanted to try their Greek Yogurt...
few choices of toppings are available..
such as Kiwi & Honey / Jackfruits & Gula Melaka / mango & walnuts / walnuts & raisins...
I will make it on next visit...


pic with the owners.. haha


the baking stove is next to the coffee counter...
opened-kitchen style, to prepare your foods and toast the bagel upon orders made...




we sit at the back...
owners are so considerate to turn on air-conditioner and cooler fans...
tho it's opened-air, but you won't feel hot on such a weather at all..
I love... 



heritage houses are so tall and long...


while waiting for our foods...



'Our bagel are great, but our coffee even better!' 
is what they written on board...
no doubt, the coffee is DAEBAK !


Cafe Cappucino, rm 10
coffee aroma great goes well with the smooth froth..


Iced Cafe Mocha which recommended by the bossie... rm 12
it's good like milo peng~ haha

here come my favourite favourite Bagel !
I so miss the time I made smoked salmon bagel daily myself in Melbourne... 
gOsh...
Bagel - doughnut look alike food but way healthier than it...


toasting up the bagel before served simply an awesome idea...
it made the bagel so munchy and the sesame so crunchy ! 


Bacon & Egg on Sesame Bagel... rm 10



it's just so finger-licking-good...
the mashed of mayo on top of the egg simply a plus point...



 Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese on Sesame Bagel, rm 10
generous portion of cream cheese plus a big and long piece of smoked salmon just so yum~ 



 Corned Beef and Rocket on Poppy Seed Bagel, rm 10

plain bagel for taking home are available at Rainforest Bakery, which is just next door for only rm 1.80 each... 




happee girl that suppa in love and enjoying her bagel and great cuppa~ 




what's next, after filled up our tummies...


busy and thinking...


ta-da~
