It has never been brought to my attention, this stall. I believe the nearby, perpetually crowded takoyaki stall of Tsujiki Gindaco has got something to do with it. An introduction by the ice creamanic didn't convince me of its quality. I mean, there are just too many stalls proclaiming their desserts being made with fresh Hokkaido milk. And with low prices to boost, I seriously question the authenticity of it all. She went ahead and bought herself a cup of, in her own words, comfort food. The skeptical me took a bite and well, let's just say that I really liked the mildly sweet, smooth ice cream. Be it Hokkaido or Okinawa or Ipanema, the optimum density must be applauded. I don't think the goma sauce, shiratama dango and azuki beans were necessary. It was good on its own. A quick check on the internet revealed that this imported brand is rather popular in Japan.

The long weekend is here again and I'd like to wish my Muslim friends a blessed and joyful Eid ul-Fitr. To the rest, have a good chill. With some comforting ice cream, perhaps?
