Mystery of Wiener Coffee

Enter Motomachi Coffee

We’ve visited a new cafe called Motomachi Coffee. It looks similar to Kurashiki Coffee. Kissaten style.

About Wiener Coffee

To tell the truth, coffee with whipped cream on top is what it is (sorry for disappointing you. Hehe), at least in Japan. Its origin comes from Vienna, Austria. Weiner refers to Vienna, so it’s Vienna coffee. In the old days many Japanese would try to find where the weiner would be hiding. Hehe. I believe you wouldn’t.

Original coffee seems to use meringue.

Lastly

It’s been a long time since this drink came to Japan but it is still available at cafes including this Motomachi Coffee and Kurashiki Coffee where I’ve previously introduced. Please try it and lemme know what you think.

During our visit in Kasaoka City from my last post, I wanted to go to a cafe before going back to Okayama City. I found this one cafe not too far from Kasaoka Bayfarm. It’s actually just few minutes of walk from JR Kasaoka Station. The cafe’s name is Tsuji Coffee. Now, shall we have our coffee time in Kasaoka?

It’s a small-size cafe that serves coffee with their own roasted beans. It can accommodate up to 10 customers. The location is pretty cool, one side of the cafe faces towards the railway, so you’ll have a clear view of the trains passing by.

Kasaoka City manhole

Addition to our Japan manhole collection and this colored fire hydrant cover too. The design shows an image of kabutogani (カブトガニ), horseshoe crab. It seems kabutogani is the symbol of Kasaoka City. There’s even horseshoe crab museum that we passed on the way to Kasaoka Bayfarm.
