May Tokyo Eats!!

The so-called "coffee jelly" @ Cafe Veloce, a chain coffee shop near me.  I only wanted the soft-serve but they don't sell it that way.

Mango supposedly made from fresh mango.  It is "soft-served" but the texture is very much like Italian gelato which is not my preference.  At a fruit shop inside the Odakyu Department Store in Shinjuku.

The best experience: Cheval de Hyotan in Ikebukuro, a somewhat unlikely location, managed by a couple, the wife being the chef.
