The half-price offer using a certain credit card came up again! Time to revisit this place! I liked this place more than the other one in Sogo because there were some seats outside. It was pretty busy given the offer so that the soft cream was actually melting quite fast. I think the machine just couldn't work fast enough to have the soft cream being kept at a lower temperature. We first ordered 2 things to share.高知縣沢渡茶大福芭菲杯It didn't look as good as that on the menu, maybe because the staff was

It didn't look as good as that on the menu, maybe because the staff was in quite a rush given the number of guests. It was such a good value for money given the half price offer! The advertised Sawatari tea Daifuku from Kochi, Japan was ok which was chewy enough but not really that outstanding. The Uji Matcha Soft Cream from Kyoto was dense and creamy but still less so compared with that from another similar shop in the same district. Although the red bean paste and matcha jelly added to make it a parfait were of average quality, the whole thing selling at half price was really appealing to your wallet!
So you could tell the soft cream was really melting fast from this picture! We had wanted to get a mixture of matcha and milk but we were told that the machine mixing the two was not available. The milk soft cream was obviously worse compared with matcha. It was just too plain and was melting pretty quickly - maybe because of the high demand today. There were some yuzu paste to eat with the plain milk soft cream - which really made the soft cream taste much better. There were 2 normal mochi and two yuzu mochi. The mochi were pretty chewy - although just average and not exceptional. I didn't get to eat the yuzu mochi. There were some matcha soft cream/cream in the middle and some jelly cubes and "crispy" rice at the bottom which were all of average quality but nothing exceptional. The crispy rice was not crispy at all. That said, it was really a great value for money selling at half price.

As we hadn't had lunch, we couldn't help not ordering one more after finishing 2 in a row. This matcha soft cream again looked less appealing than that on the menu - look at the broken tip. The waffle cone was ok but nothing exceptional - really not as comparable as those from another similar shop in the same district which offered denser soft cream and more buttery waffle cone! Yet again it was still a good deal given the half price offer!
It was really appreciated that the seemingly "boss" offered to take a photo for us when she saw us taking photos.
