We discovered a nice restaurant of delicious parfait and green tea. If you love sweets, this is the place you should visit!
Both my wife and I love sweets! In order to relax ourselves from the work of weekdays, we visited the cafe “Chanonke” at Murasakibaru Town of Kagoshima City.
The name of the restaurant “Chanonke” means “to have a cup of tea” in Kagoshima’s dialect.
- Parfait Set (1,000-1,200 yen)・・・There are 5 kinds of parfait. You can select hot or ice tea from 3 kinds 1. Chiran Tea, 2. Hoji Tea or Kikouji Tea (a kind of Jasmine Tea)♪
- Sweet Set Plate (500 – 700 yen)・・・There are 14 kinds of plates. You cannot select drink (tea, coffee, etc) if you order a sweet set plate.
Beautiful hand-made plates and cups.
We enjoyed watching those objects. They are so cute! 🙂
The restaurant sells many kinds of Chiran teas. We bought one of them to our friend who loves green tea.
Many kinds of Chiran tea are sold.
Following picture is the Japanese Parfait which my wife ordered (1,000円＋tax).
Wow! What a wonderful scenery! I cannot wait to eat it ! ＼(^o^)／
My wife selected Hoji Cha for tea.
My wife had been always busy for nursing our baby and tired. She was so delighted at the parfait since she loves ice cream of green tea.
The maccha of the parfait was produced in Kirishima City.
You cannot see at the above picture, but cold read beans are at the bottom of the parfait.
Japanese Chestnut Parfait
I ordered Japanese Chestnut Parfait (1,200 yen ＋ tax）.
It was autumn when we came to the restaurant. Chestnuts are harvested in that season. In order to enjoy the taste of autumn, I chose this unique parfait.
I selected Chirancha tea for drink. The Chirancha tea is the famous product of Kagoshima. The taste of Chirancha tea is milder but more bitter than normal green tea.
Bitter Chirancha tea was very delicious with very sweet parfait of chestnuts. 🙂
Close look of the parfait. The parfait is put in the dish for drinking maccha.
Small tips of the chestnuts are included in the ice cream.
Big boiled chestnuts were very sweet and delicious.
While we were enjoying parfait, some female guests came to the restaurant.
Maybe this restaurant is very good to enjoy chatting with your friends. The atmosphere is relaxing and we felt at home.
We were also glad that staff were very friendly and she gave a hug to our daughter.
I will try different parfait next time I come there!
