Café

cafe AALIYA is a long-standing café located diagonally across from “Isetan” on the corner of the Shinjuku 3-Chome intersection, and it is famous for its French toast. The colorful entrance leading to the stairs down to the basement, where the café is located, is the what you should look out for. The café’s interior is relaxing, with a calm and casual atmosphere. The French toast you’ll find here is practically synonymous with the restaurant itself, and it is thick, with a slightly crispy exterior and soft interior, and a slight sweetness. They make sure the toast is quickly heated all the way through the middle by using large copper sheet as the cooking surface, ensuring exquisite French toast that is fluffy and moist, yet cooked through perfectly without losing moisture. The French toast pairs amazingly with siphon-made coffee and carefully-selected teas. At lunchtime, the meal sets that come with a drink and salad (or soup) are an even better deal.

  • 黃麗華

    法式吐司是以厚片吐司製作,用銅版將兩面都煎得微微焦脆,外焦內軟充滿奶蛋香的法國吐司在嘴裡慢慢融化,一次就愛上了這個口感味道
