Milos and I visited the Usagui (Rabbit in Japanese) Cake and Tea shop in Barcelona during the Christmas holiday. It was a very quiet day, and we were almost the only customers. Our tea and cake arrived frosted with cream, sprinkles of cinnamon, in a winter scene with a tiny plastic deer amongst the “snow” icing. I loved the attention to detail, and yesterday went back with some other friends.
Although my puff pastry cream cake didn’t have a little creature this time, it was still delicious and we spent a lovely afternoon spoiling our taste-buds. You can buy maccha lattes, and they have a variety of cakes each day from black sesame green tea roll cake to daifuku. The shop is hidden on the basement level, minimally decorated with exposed brick and school chairs, but the atmosphere is cosy, and you can while away your time while browsing Japanese design magazines.
