Rainy season is over and the heat has returned. I spend the morning sitting in my apartment with the curtains closed to block out the sun. I am turning into my grandmother.
The assault of summer means I can eat more tasty cold things, like kakigori and saké passion fruit ice cream:
Ice cream is difficult to photograph — no time can be wasted in getting that deliciousness into my mouth.
Earlier this week I went the healthy route and opted for the side salad: asparagus, carrot & lemon, and tomato.
This trio can be found at Japanese Ice OUCA in Ebisu. The boozy saké ice cream was devoured in Azabu juban (across from the 7-11). Both shops change their flavors frequently and always have something a little crazy, though one of my favorites is the fresh-squeezed milk. A friend of mine just got an ice cream maker and I used to make a lot of ice cream when I lived in the US, so we talked about crazy flavors to try at home. I suggested avocado, or honey and lavender. Anyone else have a recommendation? What unique flavors have you tried recently?Follow @salisbua
