It seems I can’t keep away from Hamburgers these days in spite of my being French!
So the other I felt compelled to check the menu at BLUE BOOKS cafe in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, again!

Now, what did I order?
Blue Cheese and Pineapple Hamburger Lunch Set!

SN3O5504

AS usual extra lettuce for good balance!

SN3O5508

The Blue Cheese and Pineapple Hamburger!

SN3O5510

For a closer look of the hamburger!

SN3O5511

I love the way they secure the whole edifice wit a wooden stick bearing their name!

SN3O5512

These hamburgers are always so well balanced! Plenty of lettuce again!

SN3O5513

And fresh tomato!

SN3O5514

Now, this is true blue cheese, piquant and tasty with salt of the cheese compensated by the sweetness of the fried pineapple ring!

SN3O5515

And succulent high class beef, with a good bite!

SN3O5509

And plenty of French (Belgian) fries!

SN3O5516

And a pot of tea served as it should be to wash it all done!

American Gastronomy: Hawaiian Loco Moco at Aloha Table in Shizuoka City!

SN3O5526

Service: Friendly and smiling
Facilities and equipment: Great cleanliness overall. Superb washroom on same floor
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Hawaiian gastronomy

SN3O5532

I have wanted to visit Aloha Table since the Den Bldg was renovated at lunch but I had been discouraged by the long queues until I came a bit later yesterday and finally could find a seat!

SN3O5517

The entrance is located on the second floor!

SN3O5518

Apparently the original restaurant is in Waikiki, Hawaii!

SN3O5519

I had a good look at the menu posted outside first!

SN3O5520

Loco moco, that’s what I wanted!

SN3O5521

A little geography lesson is always useful!

SN3O5522

Hawaii is the birthplace of surfing!

SN3O5524

The drink bar!

SN3O5525

Menus clearly announced everywhere!

SN3O5526

Very simple in concept but appetizing!

SN3O5527

Special mark for the free drink bar: consomme soup, lemonade and white wine! As much as you want!

SN3O5529

Good-balanced lunch!

SN3O5530

The meat patty is very tender and really tasty. A good mark for the sauce, too! Breaking the egg yolk and mixing it with sauce is a pleasure!

SN3O5531

And the rice is excellent, too. Not always easy! Eat the whole with a spoon!

Next I must try the Garlic Soft Shell Shrimps!

Sandwich: Home-made Smoked Salmon & Guacamole Sandwich at BLUE BOOKS cafe in Shizuoka City!

SN3O5505

Service: Very friendly, smiling and attentive
Equipment & Facilities: Great overall cleanliness. Superb washroom in same building separated from the cafe.
Prices: Reasonable for such big servings!
Strong points: Very generous cafe/bistro multi-genred gastronomy. Great variety. Great products. Entirely non-smoking in very modern atmosphere. Great books!

SN3O5504

I’ve initiated a series of postings to recommend lunches at restaurants in Shizuoka prefecture. The first two installments were dedicated to French and Italian Gastronomies. As the third one will concern “Western Gastronomy”, that is American, European and the like, BLUE BOOKS cafe will definitely qualify!
It had been a long time since I enjoyed a real sandwich for lunch and I couldn’t resist the home-made Smoked Salmon & Guacomole Sandwich!

SN3O5506

As for other lunch sets it is served with fresh salad and a complimentary drink. I topped with a glass of British Strongbow Cider!

SN3O5507

This is what I called American popular gastronomy at its best!
It is lighter than it looks. The bread is top-class and toasted to perfection!

SN3O5508

And it is comparatively so healthy with plenty of fresh local vegetables, making for great balance with the salmon!

SN3O5510

Succulent guacomole!

SN3O5509

And naturally, plenty of French (Belgian) fries!

Very satisfying and yuuuummmmmyyyy!

More soon!

The other day, a rainy bore of it, I had a hunger and a taste for meat to satisfy, so once again I checked what was on offer at BLUE BOOKS cafe in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!
I discovered a lunch composed of a rib eye steak with French fries and mustard!

As for my thirst I took care of it with a Brooklyn Ale!

Cooked on the grill and served juicy with a natural taste!
