I went to Tsukishima with my friend this weekend, and we ate nice Monja-yaki. We walked “Monja Street” at Tsukishima in lunch time. There are many Monja restaurants, and I smelled very nice the smell of Monja-yaki. We ate Monja-yaki at Daruma. This restaurant’s interior is nice. It was like a Showa style. I ate Cheese Monja and my friend ate Seafood Monja. We made Monja-yaki ourselves like a photo. It was a bit difficult, but we did it. Our Monja-yaki were very delicious because we made it. At Tsukishima, there are many Monja-yaki restaurant, so you should go and find a good restaurant such as us!

Today, I recommend an acai bowl restaurant. The name is “Kailua Weekend”. This restaurant is on the 7th floor of Shibuya Hikarie. There are various healthy sweets such as acai bowl. Acai is a fruit just like a blueberry from Brazil. Acai has more polyphenol than blueberry (18 times) and also it has more iron than liver (3 times). In addition, acai has many dietary fiber and calcium. Acai is excellent fruit for our human. Kailua Weekend serve various acai bowl and these are very nice. You can enjoy Kailua Weekend from lunchtime to dinnertime!

Washing your face with egg white?!

Eggwhite1

Have you ever thought about washing your face with egg white?  That sounds strange to me.  But when we wash our faces with egg white, it makes them clean, and moisturize them at the same time.  Also, it helps us cure acne.  In Sweden, people have believed that egg white is good for our skin from way back because the main component of egg white is protein, and it helps repairing our skin.  Egg White Facial Soap became popular.  Swedish royal family and many celebrities like the soap.
