My liquid lunch, cuz it's too hot to eat in LA. This is my fav cheap find of this summer. It's iced coffee with cream and milk, then they add crushed coffee jello (khee jelly, you can find it at many cafs in Japan or at Japanese grocery stores). It's a fun new alternative to boba drink #hotinLA

San Jose | The weather is getting a lot cooler but that does not diminish my loyalty towards ice cream. Some women shop no matter they are happy or sad, and I eat ice cream no matter it is hot or cold. Not gelato, not gourmet ice cream, but soft serve in Hojicha flavor. The small size came with a nice swirl of the soft serve on the wafer cone. The unique robust and nutty flavor of the hojicha was rather light and subtle, but it was good in a way that it wasn't too sweet. _california

If you're melting in this heat wave we're having, take a cool break and stop by Matcha Love for some delicious macha green tea soft serve. They also have black sesame as seen here in the swirl. So refreshing and it's good for you too! Matcha is known for antioxidants, relieving stress, boosting metabolism, and lowering cholesterol. eats buzz

San Jose | Life is always better with ice cream. We eat ice cream to celebrate happiness, but we also eat ice cream to let out sadness. These swirls do a lot of magic in us! This hojicha ice cream was nice that it wasn't too sweet and we could taste that mellow nutty roasty flavor in every sip, although it was not dense and rich enough in our opinion. Texture? It was smooth but just not creamy enough. It was not as perfect as those famous ice cream masters in HK (yes HK we miss you so much!), but for now whenever we are craving for tea ice cream, we'll definitely feed our tastebuds with ice cream from Matcha Love! _california

Mitsuwa is mini Japanese shopping center with a grocery store, book store, food court, bakery, liquor store, and gift shops. The food court has a variety asian cuisine stalls. There is a Korean one, a chinese dim sum one, two japanese noodles stalls, a japanese burger stall, and a dessert and specialty drinks stall. 

For most of the stalls, it is cash only, so make sure you bring enough cash. Most meals and combo meals will be $10+. For the Japanese stalls, there is a ramen one and udon noodle one. I've had both and they are decent. Still a bit pricey, basically higher end "mall food". My favorite thing about the noodles is whichever one you order, it comes with a tempura shrimp. The ramen stall is by far the busiest and most popular stall. Be prepared to wait in a long line if you go during lunch hour.

Best thing about the burger stall are the fries and the plethora of seasoning you can shake all over them. It's a must try if you visit this place. 

And when you are all full, you get head over to the market to pick up grocery, or stop by the Hippo bakery for some sweet treats.

San Jose | Matcha Love by Ito En finally coming to the Bay Area! We were so excited when we saw the notice that the shop is opening soon! What does that mean? That means we are gonna eat many many matcha products in the very near future! The shop will be opening in late May, but a temporary counter of it is now serving everyone! They only serve matcha soft serve for now, but that's already enough to satisfy our sweet tooth! The cup of soft serve was smooth, thick and creamy, however we thought that the matcha flavor of it was kinda mild and subtle that we personally prefer a more bitter green tea flavor. Although it's not rich and instense enough for our liking like Via Tokyo or Sweets House Cha Cha in HK, it can already satisfy our matcha cravings! _california
