Ginza : Sharp and artistic green kakigori at Matsuzaki Senbei(松崎煎餅 お茶席)

Matsuzaki Senbei Ginza branch moved because of reconstruction and they quit cafe. They only sell senbei now.

If you want to have their Japanese sweets in cafe, there’s only their cafe in Setagaya area. (Open hours 11:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. / Closed – Wednesdays)

It is art work ! Not simple shaved ice !

I went to Ginza after work to buy farewell gift for co-worker last friday.

An fashonable woman in the office said, “A senbei shop at Ginza serves good kakigori :D”.I thought why she say such a strange thing 🙁
Senbei shop serves kakigori ? Good kakigori ? No kidding. But I treated her well with saying “OK, I’ll drop in at the shop if I have time :).”

Well, I walked to Ginza from my office. About 20 minutes. I felt so muggy, and I wanted to cool myself at anywhere.
I remembered the Senbei shop.

The senbei shop is near Wako building, and face main street.So shop itself was striking. I could find easily.
But its tea room didn’t being striking. I went upstairs besides the shop. Well this shop isn’t striking, too. What striking is shop’s sign 😛

This shop’s name is Matsuzaki Senbei.

Tea room had only two visitors.
It was so quiet that I couldn’t believe street noises outside 🙂

Though I teetered between cool shiruko and kakigori, I ordered
Uji-Kintoki Kakigori(宇治金時, 1000 yen). Because it was so hot. And, With Shiratama (白玉, +100 yen) 😀

What angles best for the kakigori ? It had unusual view.

It was sharp looking, but it was soft and melted in my mouth 😉

Three shiratama 🙂 It was sticky. Of course, not frozen 😛
Recently I learned to eat tsubu-an (paste containing pieces of azuki beans skin)

Uji-maccha had not much sugar 🙂 I got “sugar” by anko besides .

I prefer anko being besides kakigori like it to on kakigori.
