Hoshino Coffee

Hoshino Coffee, SangenjayaOn our last full day in Tokyo we decided to explore Sangenjaya, the neighborhood where we stay each time we visit.  We are ashamed to say that we’ve missed out on SO MUCH good stuff! Next time, I’m going to have to remember that there’s more to Sangenjaya than Mister Donut and our hotel street! For the rest of the week, I’ll be sharing some gems from the neighborhood. IMG_3752Hoshino Coffee was one of our final hour discoveries. You can find Hoshino shops all over Japan (and even in Singapore). The Hoshino in Sangenjaya happened to be just three blocks away from our hotel. They are famous for their hand-poured coffees and their soufflé pancakes. I had the Charcoal Roast Coffee. It was STRONG, but really delicious. (It seems like all of the fancy coffee in Japan is strong.)  IMG_3753Naoto ordered a soufflé. To say it was heaven in a ramekin is an understatement. I’ve never tasted something so light and sweet and buttery. The thick chocolate syrup was rich and just bitter enough to balance the sweetness of the soufflé.

    next time, we should alternate and visit Hoshino for an afternoon pick-us-up!

  2. OMG YES. I’m a little (jokingly) upset with you for not ordering the sweet pancake soufflé! It was AMAZING and I’m drooling just thinking about it. We went to Hoshino in Osaka and I regret not visit the Shibuya/Harajuku location before heading to the airport 😦

      I was so FULL that afternoon because I’d just eaten lunch & dessert at another coffee shop. Next time I will take the plunge and try the pancake soufflé, promise!
