I’m not crazy about seafood. I don’t eat cheese or milk-based foods. And I don’t like most beans. But I love a great meal!!! Since living here in Sendai I’ve come across a number of restaurants, bakeries, and assorted other eateries that are perfect for me and my pickiness.
My aim with this blog is twofold:
1) to help others like me (and normal people, too) find satisfying meals,
2) for others to help me by suggesting new places that I might like.

UPDATE: Miyakoshiya Coffee 宮越屋珈琲 022-225-7111
UPDATE, OCT. 13, 2013: UNFORTUNATELY, THIS CAFE IS NO LONGER IN BUSINESS AS A CAFE. I VISITED MITSUKOSHI DEPARTMENT STORE YESTERDAY AND I FOUND THAT IT NOW ONLY SELLS COFFEE BEANS.
I WAS SORRY TO SEE THIS PLACE GO.
If you'd like, continue to read the post to see what you missed out on.
If you haven't read about Miyakoshiya before, please click my first Miyakoshiya post.
This past weekend I returned to Miyakoshiya for the Honey-Chocolate Pound Cake that I saw on the menu last time. I imagined this to be a big hunk of chocolate pound cake with a taste of honey. But, to my disappointment, this is what it turned out to be ...
Two small, thin slices of slightly honey-flavored pound cake with chocolate chips. The fresh whipped cream did add a nice flavor to it but it was not what I was hoping for. It didn't taste bad, and most people would probably enjoy this. And for only 263 円, it's not a bad deal. It just didn't live up to my expectations.
The saving grace was the French Blend Coffee and, again, it was strong and flavorful. There was a posting for a brownie so perhaps I'll try that next time.
