Cafes in Japan 2017 – Fukuoka

IMG_4258.jpgThe coffees that we tried in Fukuoka were in general good!

And we seemed to get this feeling that cafes in Fukuoka are generally having very nice ambience and environment (check out the panorama shot in the banner picture) that’s conducive for sipping coffee and watching the world go by…

I think by this point we were pretty much too full to try any cafe food 😛

Cafes in Japan 2017 – Kumamoto

IMG_4028Because of the recent earthquake, the 2 most famous landmarks of Kumamoto, Mt Aso and Kumamoto Castle, were out of bounds to tourists. Hence we spent most of our time here on trains, checking out the beautiful and casual rides throughout the countryside. So very few cafe hoppings in Kumamoto. 🙂

While we only tried 2 cafes in Kumamoto, we were very impressed by the coffee and desserts both times 🙂

Cafes in Japan 2017 – Kagoshima

IMG_3840Oh, we walked past many times the Polar Bear cafe むじゃき Mujyaki located in Tenmonkan walking street (see banner picture) on our way back to our hotel. It created the 白熊 Shirokuma Shaved Ice during one summer and it went viral. So now you get long queues at the 4-storey cafe which also sells merchandises. No we didn’t went in. 🙂

Well, I guess we have to work harder to find nicer cafes in Kagoshima the next round… any recommendations?

Cafes in Japan 2017 – Miyazaki

IMG_3504There was so much to do in Miyazaki, but we still managed to visit 4 cafes for food and drinks 😛

In general, the cafes were quite busy for a relatively quiet and chillax city, but we did not have to queue for seats.

Cafes in Japan 2017 – Osaka

img_3413With only one full day in Osaka, we managed to check out Pablo, minus the long queues seen in the recently-opened Singapore outlet, as well as a lovely cafe. As we had to take a bus to Itami Airport for the domestic flight to Miyazaki, we also found time to grab a bite at the Osaka City Air Terminal and Itami Airport 🙂

Tolido’s Espresso Nook @Crawford Lane

2017-06-24 10.19.41We were in the area to collect hubby’s passport and the queue at Tai Hwa looked scary 😮

A quick Google Search showed a promising cafe nearby and we decided to check it out instead.

2017-06-24 10.21.59A nice cosy little cafe, it started to get really busy at around 10:30am. Luckily, we stepped in just a few minutes earlier, and were able to get our seats and place our orders quickly.

  • Sea salt spiced Chai latte ($6.50 nett) : After the initial light saltiness, the first sip was actually quite sweet and milky, before the spice settled in and started swirling all over. I liked the layers of taste!
  • Skinny latte ($5.50): With beans from Yahava, hubby is a happy man. He felt that this was a slightly watered down version of the one he usually has at Yahava, but still pretty good 🙂
  • The ultimate combo ($12): Perfect for sharing as we wanted a light bite, the 2 pancakes were fluffy and quite light.  The cheese sausage was awesome and really cheesy, without being overly salty.

Wi-Fi and water is available for free. Also,  there was a cute cat inside cafe!

Cafes in Busan and Seoul, South Korea

We had been to quite a few cafes during this trip, sometimes just to get breakfast for the next morning, and sometimes, we needed caffeine. And our favourite place gotta be…

카반커피 Kavan Coffee

IMG_2385IMG_2384Of worthy mention is this place, where we had the best Cafe Latte (₩3,000) of this trip. Strong, yet smooth, it had that oomph at the very first sip 🙂

The Green Tea Latte  (₩3,500) here was pretty good too.

There are 2 outlets, and the one we visited was near 서면역 Seomyeon Station 西面站 (check out the location map in their website). Do give it a try if you visit Busan!

덕수궁 Deoksugung Palace 德壽宮 @Seoul, South Korea

IMG_2727Our last day in Seoul, and we thought to just hang around near our hotel.

We wanted to check out the stone-wall road of 덕수궁 Deoksugung Palace 德壽宮, but as we were walking towards the palace, we heard drums going off…

Imagine our excitement when we saw the Changing of the Royal Guards Ceremony in front of 대한문 Daehanmun Gate 大漢門 so close to the streets (and traffic lights)!

Too bad it was nearing the end already, so we decided to go ahead with admiring the stone walls, and finding a cafe to chill, while we waited for the 15:30 Changing of the Royal Guards Ceremony to begin.

남대문시장 Namdaemun Market 南大門市場 @Seoul, South Korea

IMG20170406134129One of the largest traditional market in South Korea, 남대문시장 Namdaemun Market 南大門市場 has been opened since 1964.

There are stores that serves as wholesale markets (starts from 11pm to next day wee hours), as well as retail sections (some stores start from 9am onwards, with push carts coming out closer to 11am).

With more than 10,000 stores, all sorts of stuff can be found here, including clothing, accessories, toys, kitchenware, etc. Of course, there are plenty of food options as well, from snack stalls to cafes and eateries. It seemed impossible to finish seeing and eating in one day.

Since we were staying quite near 남대문시장 Namdaemun Market 南大門市場, we popped over quite a number of times for eating and shopping. In fact, hubby even managed to haggle a little for cheap men’s socks 😮 (Though we did see even cheaper ones at Dongdaemun…)

First thing we did was to get a map of the Namdaemun Market at the Information Centre near Exit 5 of 회현 Hoehyeon Station 會賢站 (Subway Line 4, Station Number 425), or you can get a copy from here. We also spotted staff stationed at different areas to help lost tourists.

House of AnLi Bistro @Tanglin Mall

2017-02-25 09.53.26G had visited this place before and jio-ed us for breakfast on this lovely weekend, but we had no idea this was such a lovely place 🙂

A really cosy bistro located at the back of a home interior shop, we really loved the natural lighting coming through the large windows and high ceilings. The natural light, coupled with the simple deco and white walls, provided a much soothing environment. The clientele as we can see it, is very much the ex-pats which is to be expected since it is within Tanglin Mall.

The view of the beautiful greenery and the comfortable seats, and the great company made us feel very relaxed and in high spirits!
