Cavalock and The Tokyo Tartine Treat

We didn't expect to find this little culinary gem when we went exploring the new Newoman mall next to our hotel. A little bakery and patisserie by the famous Joel Robuchon, Le Pain de Joel Robuchon and its being hailed as his first specialty bakery. Needless to say, we made plans to have breakfast there the next morning.

Just look at the above seasonal mushroom tartine! I can definitely get used to waking up to this every morning. Since it's strawberry season in Japan, I had the very yummy strawberry croissant instead and the baker at home had the tartine. And between the two is a very delicious sweet potato danish.

Presenting this trip's boardgame haul from Japan! I only managed to hit one game store this trip and it's the Yellow Submarine in Shinjuku. I still have yet to play some of the games I bought last year! So if anyone wants a game, just let me know.

Speaking of games, I was in Tokyo on the first day of the Nintendo Switch launch. This photo was taken at 7pm in the evening and there's a queue for it in Shinjuku.
