Kirk showed me Hattifnatt a while ago – you may remember the cute painted walls. We only had dessert that time though so when Nozomi and I met for lunch the other day and after we hmm’d and haww’d for a few minutes about where to eat I suggested this place. The lunch was just as good as the desserts.
I got the Avocado Taco Rice – have you noticed I’m a fan of this dish? I’m always pretty happy to find it on a menu. I must warn you though, if you’re looking for Mexican food in Japan – taco rice is not it. Haha Taco rice is Japanese Mexican food. You know, just like how we have our ultra cheesy American Mexican food in the states.
You can’t really tell from the first picture but that door is really tiny (I had to duck!) and so is the place. Its kind of like going into someone’s treehouse. What a cute idea.
Its on a really adorable street too! There’s a shop next door thats just full of cubbyholes people can rent to sell their art/jewelry/stationary, etc. I bought a cool beaded ring. Heh heh. Anyway when you go to Koenji (because if you go to Japan you MUST go to Koenji), stop at Hattifnatt – who doesn’t like feeling like a kid again?
1) the banner stays!
2) I’m thinking about opening an Etsy shop soon to sell prints of my film photos and my photo book. I’m just waiting until I get back in the states so it will be easier to deal with shipping. Have you used Etsy before? Do you recommend it or do you use a different site? For the book I’m thinking of self-publishing with Blurb. Any thoughts in that regard? Know of better options?
Thanks guys : )
