Recently stumbled upon an interesting organic cafe with distinct Glasshouse structure in a garden in Sukhumvit area. With some curiosity, I’ve entered the place to further explore the cafe.
The main cafe located in the glasshouse consists of organic bakery, Thai dessert, Thai food in Pinto(little food container with distinct silver color) and organic products which percentages of sales are donated in developing provinces in Nakhonpatom area.
I’ve went for a Kanomthuay 10THB/piece (consisted of coconut milk, loaf sugar and flour). Having quality dessert with greenery scenery is one of the best way to energize and relax myself in weekend.
The cafe also consisted of outdoor garden to enjoy a good cup of coffee, tea or cocoa. Gotta say that the outdoor garden are one of the most impressive place I’ve visited.
First time I’ve seen a colorful cactus, so beautiful.

Kobe is the capital of Hyogo prefecture and a busy port town. With these various trading activity, Kobe became blending pot for series of culture and various structure style from many regions.
I started with Tachiba restaurant which I have discovered without doing any preparation and research before traveling to Kobe. The place serves Akashi yaki which substitute Takoyaki flour by egg.
The result of changing the ingredient? Well, it’s amazing! Egg gave a fluffy texture and dipping Akashi Yaki into the light clear soup make it one of most appetizing meal I have ever came across. Gotta love it when chef flip the pan and Akashi yaki just came out easily and ready to be serve.
Then I went for a dessert café (La sensation) and got a custard cake with small dot of sour sauce to provide more dimension in color. Most satisfying cake indeed.
After having a nice snack and dessert, I stumbled upon Motoko market which located under the train track in Kobe. Series of classic and interesting shop inside for exploring.
That’s all for my review. In my opinion, Kobe is one of the tourist attraction city which could balance between city charm and modern world development. See you next later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊

Satisfied with recent Soba lunch, I went for a sweet treat journey around Sanjo area. Luckily, there are recently opened dessert bar with a very high promising feedback and I rush to the place with strong excitement.
The place is rather modern with cake showcase at the front and dessert bar inside which seems to be luxurious and comfortable. I ordered one cake and their recommend menu which contain Matcha since Kyoto are famous for and then take the seat as they prepare my dessert.
The vert [Matcha + Pistachio + Tonka beans + Chocolate + Citrus junos]
Matcha glass dessert. Pour with chocolate sauce.
At first, the staff prepare a small bowl with impressive decoration of sweet which seems like a carefully decorated little garden. Then they pour warm chocolate sauce in top of the bowl as the chocolate starts melting and create another view of harmony between chocolate sauce and lower Matcha garden.
As I glance through every detail, I realized that this dessert has been carefully refined and executed to the perfection. Personally, I do not classify any dessert as perfect however, this one clearly deserved that title. Starting with a tender kick of Yuzu to start your appetite. Then sweetness of Matcha and strong flavor of chocolate blend in with crispy Pistachio and Tonka beans. Then *Poof* everything just finished just like your favorite song when you hear it the first time.
I also ordered a cake. The texture was pretty good however, The Vert was just insanely amazing. Not your day today little cake.
That’s all for my review. Personally, I would strongly recommend this place for dessert lover. I am seriously planning to subscribe myself as a Matcha lover after I tasted the Vert. See you next later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊
