8/25 Eikaiwa Afternoon Tea

Thanks to the nice weather, we were able to do Eikaiwa Afternoon tea at Central Park this past weekend.  I really enjoyed practicing English conversation with everyone. We learned new idioms and phrases and talked about our favorite places to visit in New York.  It was really great to exchange information with everyone.  Everyone could practice English and learn about new places in the city at the same time.

I was also delighted that Japion, New York’s Japanese newspaper, joined us at the event this weekend as well.  The people working at Japion are really lovely people and I am really glad that I had the opportunity to work with them.

I made three different kinds of sweets but unfortunately I completely forgot to take pictures this time!  I made matcha cookies, kinako mochi, and soy milk cocoa mini-cakes.  This picture is the only one that I have, which is of the soy milk cocoa mini-cakes.

1 0r 8 Restaurant in Williamsburg

This past weekend we tried 1 or 8 Japanese restaurant in Williamsburg.  The layout of the restaurant is interesting. When you are outside it looks like it is just a counter restaurant but once you enter the restaurant and walk inside a little bit, it’s actually a rather large restaurant.

We ordered the tsukemono salad, chirashi sushi and vegetable sushi.  The idea of the vegetable sushi was really interesting.  It’s a great option for vegans!  I’d like to try making this at home sometime.


Kinako mochi and Hoji-cha

I made this over the weekend. The inside is made of kinako powder and white bean.  It tastes great with hoji-cha tea!
