Yukinoshita Ginza is now temporarily closed because they can’t find new location. And former owner of Yukinoshita Ginza opened their cafe named “Parlor Vinefru” at this place (January 9th, 2020)
We visited Yukinoshita Ginza that is popular cafe as pancake and kakigori after a long absence. They are on the 3rd floor of the tomato building. When we got to there, long line reached the 1st floor. They serve kakigori all year round.
This shop’s pancake is thick and soft. And it isn’t much sweet and also fruits are good. So I like their foods.
It’s located at the back of the street in Ginza. Tomato building is very outstanding, so, you won’t miss it.
Foods and Drinks we had
Kiwi kakigori (キウイのかき氷, 800 yen) had sourness of kiwi fruits and the shaved ice was soft. So, it’s good for humid summer season!
Persimmon from Wakayama kakigori
It’s autumn-winter flavor. Persimmon. Persimmon from Wakayama kakigori (和歌山産柿氷, 800 yen). It had characteristic texture of persimmon. Sticky texture. It’s like sorbet. Not kakigori. But good.
Pancake with strawberries and condense milk
Yukinoshita’s pancake is very soft like soufflé. Pancake with strawberries and condense milk (いちごのパンケーキ練乳ミルクの白, 900 yen) is simple having pancake, cream and strawberry. So, we could enjoy the texture and sweetness of soft pancake.
This name have “condense milk”, so I imagined that it is very sweet. But it wasn’t too sweet. I like this degree of sweetness.
You may imagine, this thick pancake takes much time to bake. It takes about 20 minutes. But it is well worth waiting.
Pancake with strawberries, and cocoa and chocolate
Black version of pancake above. Pancake with strawberries, and cocoa and chocolate(いちごのパンケーキココアチョコの黒, 900 yen)It had flavor of cacao and it went with strawberry very well. But somehow, the pancake was firmer than white pancake. Because of cacao ?
This is Autumn-winter flavor, too. Anno-Imo sweet potato pancake (安納芋のパンケーキ, 800 yen). The pancake had mashed sweet potato, and ice cream and sweet potato paste on the pancake. It looks cute, but it’s too sweet for me. So much sweet things on the sweet pancake :p If you love sweet potatoes and sweet things so much, you would like it.
This is French toast (フレンチトースト, 900 yen). Though they are so popular as pancake and kakigori, this french toast is delicious. And brilliant. Everything was tasty. Especially, this organic lemon soaked in syrup’s smell was good. Fresh cream was served separately. So, at first, I enjoyed without cream and then put some onto the toast.
Drinks are good, too
Their serve variety of drinks. Especially, cold drinks are colorful.
Strawberry and milk (苺の牛乳割, 600 yen), Lemon from Ehime and milk (愛媛産レモンの牛乳割, 600 yen), Kiwi and soda (キウイのソーダ割,500 yen) and Kiwi and milk (キウイの牛乳割, 600yen )
Of course, they have simple coffee and tea, too. And they have a variety of coffee beans from all over the world.
This is coffee from Ethiopia (エチオピア産コーヒー, 500 yen).
