Another round of buffet. This time its desserts!
There’s this famous place for desserts called Sweets Paradise, a buffet restaurant serving cakes, desserts and such. It’s sort of a franchise, with several outlets spread across cities. One of my To Do list at the time is to try it out – nevermind the fact that I don’t really eat sweet things or the fact that we were full. With the help of the GPS system we tracked down the shop, located at Colette Mari, one of the malls near the Sakuragicho Station.
Here’s when the ‘system’ comes to play. Before we entered the shop, we paid ¥1480 at the entrance of the shop, using the machine above. Got our admission tickets, with the exit time stamped on them. Like the buffet restaurant, Fisherman’s Market, we’re only allowed to stay for an hour and a half. We were lead to or seat, which faced the world’s tallest ferris wheel. There were a couple of girls enjoying pasta on my left side, a few couples on a date and even moms and their kids.
Desserts galore! Really fancy-looking, too. I got myself a couple of cakes and pudding (particularly anything that I thought was in strawberry flavor), with peaches as toppings. They serve rice, pasta and soups, too. When it came to drinks, we self-served from the drinks bar, but also ordered from the kitchen for the more exotic teas on the menu – and the drinks were bottomless in a way, since it’s a buffet. I think I had two plates of desserts and three types of drinks. I can’t recall how much Reza had.
They use more whipped cream and less icing, something I appreciate. You won’t catch me eating sponge cakes at home unless I’m told or forced to. But goodness, some of the cakes there are pretty good – especially this green tea sponge cake I tried. I suppose the ambiance also made the whole dining experience enjoyable.
One hour and a half passed by. I could barely walk by then. I did mention previously that the trip was somewhat like a non-stop eating trip for me. I suppose it was a different kind of experience that time and it felt good.
