It was bound to happen! Our friends at Monocle will open its first London café at 18 Chiltern Street, Marylebone, on Monday 15 April.  The new venture for the media brand follows the success of the Monocle Café in Tokyo, which opened in October 2011 in the Hankyu Men’s department store in Chiyoda-ku. The London café will reflect the style of the Tokyo café but will offer a unique experience for Monocle’s subscribers, readers and coffee-loving visitors.

Congratulations.

Wagashi are traditional Japanese confections that evolved into an art form in the ancient Imperial capital, Kyoto. Though we often attribute desserts with taste and smell, these Japanese morcels are an invitatation to engage all five senses.

George Orwell: A Nice Cup of Tea
Posted
Wednesday, 13.04.2011

Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950), better known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English author and journalist. His work is marked by keen intelligence and wit, a profound awareness of social injustice, an intense, revolutionary opposition to totalitarianism, a passion for clarity in language and a belief in democratic socialism.

Orwell enjoyed live and was a heavy smoker, rolling his own cigarettes from strong shag tobacco and his love of strong tea was legendary. In 1946 he published "A Nice Cup of Tea" on how to make it.

The Meatless Ragù
Posted
Monday, 25.10.2010

It is one of those golden October days when the mail man visits us with heaps of mails, letters and envelopes. And one such an envelope from our friends at Panatom he hands over at the door.  Hurray, Jule Hass, founder of Panatom, has made an effort to collect delicious fungus popping out through out the "Brandenburger" forests. Each little edible type handpicked and dried from the chicken mushroom to the giant puffball to the oyster mushroom. Hail to our hunter Jule and we don't know yet what to serve for dinner: The Meatless Ragù, the Persian Herb Frittata or the Mushroom Quesadillas?

Tart Porn!
Posted
Tuesday, 03.08.2010

This can only happen in Japan: a serene place all dedicated to fruitcakes. The Berry Cafe located in Ginza is designed all in subtle black, yet the prices are not as high as the place might non-verbally communicate. Their only products are tarts and cakes decorated with the finest mangos, berries, watermelon, peaches, figs and lemon ginger all piled up in a style that might startle the European eye and even their taste buds. Of course you are not obliged to order a complete tart for yourself; you can order slices with prices ranging from 650 to 950 Yen. One can find the flagship cafe in Aoyama (Tokyo), with other branches in Nagoya (Aichi), Chiba City, Funabashi (Chiba), Hiroshima City, Nishinomiya (Hyogo), Kyoto City and Osaka City.
