Dinner at Mitsuwa Marketplace

As far as I remember, my husband and I have never had dinner at Mitsuwa before even though we go there very often. We usually go on the weekend and only for lunch, so last night was a rare occassion. Suddenly we both were craving for the soba from Kayaba in Mitsuwa's food court. Last week when we were there for the Umaimon gourmet food fair, we didn't have that amazing and mouth watering soba.

In addition to the soba for both of us (kitsune for him and tempura for me), my husband also wanted to have their unagi don, so he ordered the set. For me, I got the mini one as well as ebikaki age and ajitsuke age from Sanuki Sando Udon. The soba was wonderful as usual, the noodle itself was al dente and the soup was incredible. The ajitsuke age was very good too, sweet and tasty, but unfortunately the inside of ebikaki age was still uncooked and pasty even though the outside was crunchy.

For the dessert, I decided to buy the cream yaki from Oishinbo. They were still piping hot and perfect, spongy and moist cake with creamy filling. Unlike last week, these cream yaki were cooked all the way through. One of my hobbies is collecting almost anything, including pictures of cream yaki's zodiac patterns. When buying cream yaki in the past, I kept forgetting which zodiac pattern that I didn't have yet. Last night I got the whole set of them so that my collection would be complete, so finally here are the complete set of 12 zodiac pattern cream yaki.
