Japan trip-Cha-Cafe

My dad was constantly thirsty because he kept sweating and sweating and sweating like crazy (yea he sweat A LOT). Also because he did not feel too well in the beginning of the trip, so when we knew he really need to rest, we stopped and would find a place to get a drink, took a rest and recovered a little bit...

The same case happened when we were in Shibuya (Omotesando to be precise) one day. A cafe caught out sight immediately when we looked up a random building :D

Food: 5
Price: 5
Service: 5.5
Ambiance: 5.5
Overall: 6
  • Mon-Sun 11:30am-8pm
  • Serves both food and drinks, and also some daily specials.
  • Suitable for all age groups
  • Despite it is located on the 2nd floor, it's really busy during lunch and tea time. It is certainly a good place to hang around.
  • Popular for teas. They sell teas and teapots on the first floor, and have a "tea school" on the fifth floor.
Ginger Tea
  • ¥980(?) (about $12CAD $87HKD)
  • I didn't get to try this, but could smell the strong ginger flavour from the side.
  • The tea was served in a bowl rather than a cup. Great idea for my thirsty dad ;D
天使の海老のトマトクリームパスタ&ポタージュ Set
  • Angel hair in shrimp and tomato cream sauce
  • ¥1300 (about $15CAD $116HKD)
  • Came with tea, soup, and mini dessert
  • This was impressive. My mom found a couple of whole shrimps in the tomato sauce.
  • Also, even though the menu said it's tomato cream sauce, both my mom and sister originally thought it's lobster soup. They said the sauce is very rich in flavour.
  • Again, I didn't get to try this due to allergy problem.
Tea Light Meal
  • 2 pita sandwiches with soup, a side salad, and a drink (I chose Iced Tea)
  • About ¥1050 (about $12CAD $94HKD)
  • Not sure what soup it was...I guess it was Cream Corn Soup; it has a mild corn flavour.
  • I found it was a bit too bland for my liking. I tried to find out what soup it was, but...the flavour was really too light.
Side Salad
  • Fresh baby spinach with light dressing on top.
  • I ended up eating this with the soup :) They tasted great together.
Cheese & Chicken Pita-4/6
  • Light melted soft chesse between the pita and the chicken.
  • The soft melted cheese went very well with the warm, also soft pita.
  • The chicken was average. Another note on that: Don't expect you will get a big piece of chicken here ;)
Ratatouille Pita-5/6
  • The ratatouille was served cold, but it went alright with the warm pita.
  • Another plus I found: It's actually quite good to have cold fillings in a pita/sandwich in such hot weather.
