A fun little restaurant in a cute little neighbourhood.
With not a cloud in the sky I took the chance to explore a new area this weekend, Shoin Jinja-mae, a little station on the Setagaya line. I fell in love with the old-school vibe of the place, combined with the amazing number of little boutique shops and cafes it had on offer. I’ll do a separate photo essay from around the area, but for now I just wanted to do a quick little post about one of the restaurants we ate a snack in.
You may not know this, but potato croquettes (korokke / コロッケ) are really, really popular in Japan. Similar to its French counterpart, korokke are made from mixing cooked chopped meat, seafood, or vegetables with mashed potato or white sauce. The resulting ball of fun is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. When I saw this restaurant, and its amazing name, I just had to go in!
