Let’s Visit The Long-Established Coffee Shop At Ginza♪

06/12/2017

Recently in Ginza, the largest scale complex facility has opened in 2017, and  we can see a lot of people going to Ginza for visit from in and out of Japan.

 

When you described Ginza,  some will describe the WAKO clock and Mikimoto Christmas tree which are landmark of Ginza and famous! Although, maybe some might describe Sukiyabashi intersection and luxury brand shops that are lined in Namiki-dori and Chuo-dori. Ginza is one of the most famous downtown area in Japan, and  the most expensive land price.

 

Except shopping, if you enter the alley, there are many restaurants and cafes. In the afternoon, there are many scenes that you see madam and families etc. in the cafes, and chatting with a cup of coffee.  This time, let me introduce few long-established coffee shops  with a history; at the place where have high grade sense, and you cannot miss!!   

 

Marufuku Coffee Shop Ginza

”Marufuku Coffee Shop” is the coffee shop in famous in dense coffee. They established in Osaka in 1934, when Ginza Station opened. The beginning of encounter was when the founder was running his own restaurant in Tokyo at that time; the coffee started to be known in Tokyo and got popular, and  he decided he wanted to offered  a coffee to his own customers.

”Marufuku Coffee Shop Ginza” is located in Tokyu Plaza Ginza. The appearance and interior unified with calm color wooden interior are stylish, which motifs the theme of Tokyu Plaza Ginza and Japanese traditional motifs!

The standard menu is blended coffee, ice coffee and original mixed juice! For ice coffee, you can choose it from with sugar and without the sugar. The mixed juice is blended with fruit juice and honey, and it is one of the popular drink among kids and ladies.

 

At Marufuku Coffee, it is said that rich coffee will be born when this 3 are completed. ①Roasting called,”Extreme roasting”,②A unique extraction tools designed by the founder,③Marufuku barista who can handles the equipment! In the past, to put the sugar inside the rich blended coffee was popular.

After the war, the age when there is nothing, the founder saw a lot of parents and children came to his shop and ordering  only a cup of coffee. Looking at the fact that children were eating 2 cubes of sugars added on the saucer as snack with a big smile on their face, from than Marufuku still offer in a style that puts cube sugar on the saucer. Treating the founder`s heartfelt episode and still it continues,  it maybe that is also one of the reason why Marufuku had been loved by customers for many years.

Not only coffee, “Marufuku Coffee Shop” is also particular about table wares. At here, it is possible to touch the traditional Japanese crafts, such as using the cup and saucer made by Okura pottery of the Imperial Household Agency, and the glasses applying a lacquered finished to a glass.If you see the picture below, you will know how pretty the cup and saucer are. Moreover, if you start drinking coffee, the “福(fuku)" mark with gold stamp will appear  inside the cup. It is cool is not it?

There are wide varieties of menu such as light meals and desserts too. The best recommend dessert is hotcake. The hotcake these days, it is full of fruits and whipped creams on the top of the hotcakes with sweet syrup and that is popular.  However, the hotcake in “Marufuku Coffee Shop” is very simple! We can say,”the sweet of Showa era!” Depends on the seasons, there are plates with whipped creams and fruits to arrange, but what I feel is to have it simple with just butter and honey or maple syrup can have the taste of original hotcake dough more good! At “Marufuku Coffee Shop”, they baked the pancake after they receive the order. It takes a while to baked, but fluffy inside and crispy outside! I suggest you trying the simple once! Please also do not miss the other shop  recommendation, Marufuku original “Berry Crepe”!

*Nel is special method the way of making the coffee using fabric filter called “flannel.” It has a smooth texture and  it is available to have the fine coffee at here.

 

The “Tricolore” recommendation is “Antique Coffee", which is Nel pour-over coffee made it with their original blended coffee beans; and “Ice Cafe Au Lait”, which is mixed with  Nel pour-over coffee with milk. For "Ice Cafe Au Lait", they pour the extracted coffee into a glass with ice and cool it quickly.  It produced a rich refreshing flavor that cannot be tasted.   The staff will  bring your coffee and milk to your table, and they make it in front of you!

Although, the popular handmade apple pie and eclair made it here also you cannot miss!  The eclair, the staff will fill the cream every time after they received the order. The light texture that cuts in crispness with a knife  is the characteristic.
