Bluebottle coffee and Beignets in Tokyo

If you haven’t had beignets, you haven’t lived.

Soft, light deep friend pastry goodness dusted in powdered sugar. The only beignets that matter are those from Cafe du monde (and yes, I’ve had them in both Tokyo and New Orleans).

But Bluebottle Coffee (now in Tokyo), do their own take on beignets. They were more doughnutty, than actual beignets. But they were incredibly light. Like eating air despite their calorie density. And they were come with butterscotch sauce instead of the coating of powdered sugar. Much prefer the powdered sugar.

And recently, I’ve taken to liking coffee. I don’t mind the odd cappuccino or cafe latte – ie lots of milk and coffee to mask the actual taste of coffee. Will never be able to do straight black coffee.

They take their coffee very seriously at Bluebottle coffee.

Their two new joints in Tokyo are always crowded having only recently opened in Tokyo.

Spring has come and gone, although the hay fever still yet hasn’t.

Here are some pics from the cherryblossoms, most of which were taken near my workplace.
