イレブンケーキーズ・チェリーメリー(Eleven Cake’s Cherry Merry)
Today a friend who is a sweets-lover took me around…90% of the recommended places on her hand-drawn maps are cake shops or parfait shops!! The old building pic is taken inside University of Hokkaido – really beautiful place!! Must be stunning in winter covered in snow. Each of us had a chocolate cake in the shop very near to the university. Then my friend was just telling me this great chiffon place nearby but once I saw it I wanted to try – turned out it tasted fantastic in spite of its plain look! I am not a big fan of chiffon cake but I really thought it was one of best ones I have had. Then the third shop was caramel and nuts parfait, again one parfait per person! The beef and cheese curry was bad though – she had never been to that shop before but it is famous apparently so we decided to try. At least it was cheap. Then the last shop we went was parfait shop that opens only at night, and there is only one person making the parfaits, waiting customers, doing the bills and everything – super busy and therefore the parfaits came very slow. We didn’t mind of course. The parfaits don’t look good at all! But they taste good, especially the one heavy heavy with rum. It is amazing that I ate so much this day yet I was not suffereing so much from a bursting stomach, maybe because we walked a lot, chatted a lot, that burned calories I suppose. But the word “diabetes” did come across my mind…hahaha.
