Facilities & Equipment: Spotless clean overall. A bit small but perfect washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Exclusively vegan gastronomy with local vegetabes and fruit!
Entirely non-smoking!

SN3O5408

Yesterday walking along Genan Street in Ryogae=cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, I couldn’t help notice this board at street level!

SN3O5409

Cuisine using no meta, fish, dairy products, nor eggs!
Well, well, Shziuoka City seems to have taken a special like for vegan gastronomy as this is the ofurth one I have discovered!

SN3O5410

Actually I found out later that Ms. Akino Yabutani/藪谷安希乃さんopened her restaurant 2 years ago, making Cafe Sain (“Sain” stands for “Healthy” in French!) the second oldest vegan Restaurant & Cafe in Shizuoka City!

SN3O5411

I knew my hunch had been correct when I discovered the beautiful vegan cakes in their display window as I entered the establishment!

SN3O5412

Although there are quite a few choices of single dishes or set I opted for the Vegan Quiche Lunch Set!

SN3O5413

Comforting hot soup on a cold day!

SN3O5414

Konnyaku with carrots and walnuts, and sauteed mushrooms!

SN3O5415

Plenty of fresh lettuce served with home-made dressing!

SN3O5416

Really yummy vegetables quiche!

SN3O5417

Fried beansprouts!

SN3O5418

And superb home-made bread for great total balance!

SN3O5419

Akino’s parents grow Benihoppe/red Cheeks Strawberries in Shizuoka City so these were picked in the morning to find themselves atop my cake!

SN3O5420

Soy milk whipped cream!

SN3O5421

I do have a real weakness for fruit tarts!

SN3O5422

Not only beautiful and tasty but also really satisfying!

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

A Murder Of Crows/Food For The Crows/A Black Plague In Shizuoka City!

SN3O5436

Crows have been making themselves an increasing nuisance in this country, especially in towns!

SN3O5019

Croaking in front of my window at 5 in the morning!

They have a sorry tendency to wake you up at wee hours of the day establishing their territories, vindicative birds they are.
Their croak is often associated with the Japanese word “aho/idiot” and they are certainly impressing this opinion (nothing to do with pinions!) of theirs own on our sorry morning dreams!

SN3O5080

Tempting garbage!

One reason for that, and probably an overwhelming one is the involuntary abundance of food offered to these scavengers every morning by garbage left at the door (on pavements) of restaurants, diners and waterholes or on more definite days of the week by households.

SN3O5040

Caught red-handed/”red talonned”!

These creatures are extremely intelligent and know that plastic/vinyl can easily be shred into pieces and holes with their big beaks. Nets are no more efficient unless they are solidly secured. The only way to prevent crows from making a mess of it all is to deposit garbage bags in secured bar cages like the ones used by farming households who have to deal with kites, wild boars, stray cats, racoon dogs or monkeys (and even bears! Serious!)!

SN3O5041

Get away from me (6 a.m. in Ryougae Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City)!

The little beasts are very protective of their territory and do not hesitate to mark it even in front of humans especially in the morning when people a few around.

SN3O5042

That particularly nasty one was even screaming at a passing car!

SN3O5044

That is, before he turned onto my cycling self!

SN3O5436

I found this particular intelligent specimen completely oblivious of the rows of students passing by at 8:30 a.m.!
I have the suspicion someone had fed it scraps one day, and he is probably thinking of getting the same in that busy spot!

Hiroshige Wood Block Prints for All in Gofuku Cho Street in Shizuoka City! 11~20

SN3O5304

Wood Block Print 11)
28th Station: Mitsuke (Tenryuu, presently Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture)!

SYNOPSIS

Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese: 歌川 広重), also Andō Hiroshige (Japanese: 安藤 広重; 1797 – 12 October 1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, considered the last great master of that tradition.
Hiroshige is best known for his landscapes, such as the series The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō.

Although you can see all 53 wood block prints at the Hiroshige Museum in Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, did you know you can see 42 (that what I counted and took in pictures yesterday although I’ll double check today!) of them daily if you walk along Gofuku Cho Street?

Actually I double checked and found a few more!
Moreover, the indications to find them were slightly wrong!
You will find all these ukiyo-e and more from along Gofuku Cho Street in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, past the first crossing up the street from Gofuku Cho Scrmable, that is where Gofuku-Cho Street crosses the main Street called Egawa Street up the Shizuoka Bank headquarters!

SN3O5371

Bryan Baird’s Newsletter (2013/11/29): Seasonal Release: Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout

Baird Beer & Taproom Events Bulletin
bryan-sayuri.gif

Seasonal Release: Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

Brewing to delicious effect using unusual and non-traditional ingredients is a hallmark of the Baird Brewery. Our success can be attributed to a few simple rules of thumb: (1) use fresh in-season ingredients, (2) use the ingredients in their most natural and minimally processed form, (3) subject the ingredients to the fermentation process, (4) don’t overdo it — use to accent and complement, not to dominate or overwhelm.

To give you a taste of these rules in practice we are pleased to release from our seasonal Baird Beer cellar Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout.

Seasonal Baird Beer Release:
*Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout (5.5%):

Draught beer manager Chris Madere has long been growing spicy Habanero peppers in his home garden. They often find their way into batches of Taproom chili or gumbo. Well, they began finding their way into Baird Beer back in 2011 — the year we debuted Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout.

Stouts are black roasty beers with a natural smoke component. We highlight and enhance the smoke character here by incorporating beechwood smoked barley as the main base malt. What is smoke without a little fire? We produce ours through deft additions of homegrown sliced and de-seeded Chocolate and Caribbean Red Habanero peppers — once before primary fermentation and once before secondary fermentation. Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout exhibits a perfectly balanced interplay between burnt smoke and spicy heat. The masterful part is that these strong flavors do not invite palate fatigue. The second pint is every bit as delicious as the first! Taste for yourself.

Smoke & Fire Habanero Stout is available for immediate release in both kegs and bottles. It begins pouring from our Taproom taps tonight (Friday November 29).

Cheers!

Bryan Baird

Interior Design Shop: D & DEPARTMENT PROJECT by TAITA in Shizuoka City!

SN3O5245

Service: Friendly and attentive
Equipment: very clean overal. Very clean washroom. Large parking
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Only long-lasting goods on sale!

The southern side of Shizuoka JR Station, i.e. Suruga Ku, is the part of Shizuoka City to conduct large shopping especially when thinking of one home’s interior.
Among those large shops one stands out for its concept and wares: D&Department Project in Shizuoka by Taita!

SN3O5243

Shop Manager, Ms. Chinatsu Mori/森千夏さん (right) and staff

D6DEPARTMENT is a “long design concept” shop.
That is, their wares are conceived not only to please customers for their design and practicality but also for their long life.

SN3O5238

Their shop associated with a cafe/restaurant also provides a large parking, making it very easy for families to visit and stay as long as they want inside the place!

SN3O5239

They recently celebrated their fifth anniversary and the staff wrote their thanks on the bay windows!

SN3O5253

Interesting sets!

Their philosophy follows 5 tenets:

1) Knowledge of the fabrication and manufacture.
All items on sale have been followed since their creation all along their fabrication to ensure their quality and long life.

SN3O5252

Shizuoka products!

2) Personal Usage.
All the items on sale have been tried and used by the staff to ensure the satisfaction of the customers.

SN3O5244

Nothing is thrown away. For example paper bags from other companies are recycled for the shop’s use!

3) Sell at the right price.
The shop has to be able to sell items that will last at least 5 years to be able to buy it back. The shop sells only items that will not only last for their quality but also for their design.

SN3O5241

Retro bags back to life!

4) Durable goods that can be repaired

The shop does not sell items that can’t be reasonably repaired.

SN3O5240

Everyday office and work goods!

5) Choose only makers’ long sellers

Long life design is based on the makers’ willingness and interest to produce the same goods for a very long time.

SN3O5242

Visit the second floor for larger interior items!

SN3O5249

Don’t miss out the items on dislplay on the stairs!

SN3O5248

Retro furniture!

SN3O5247

SN3O5251
