One on a lookout for cute cafes, I recently walked into Soso Tokyo during my recent stroll along trendy Daikanyama. This tiny restaurant specializes in light meals (tofu, tempura and such), Japanese sweets and matcha. I was not particularly hungry so I ordered their Otenmae matcha set and absolutely loved the presentation. You are served everything you need to whisk your own matcha tea (you are even given step-by-step instruction on how to do so, in case you are not sure), and the namagashi depicting seasonal motifs were such a nice compliment. The decor of the place is also quite beautiful. It is a cozy space, with a mixture of contemporary and traditional Japanese aesthetics. The oversized decorative fans, for one, made such a tasteful statement. It is a perfect spot for a short tea break, and I read really good reviews about their food, so a return visit is definitely in order for me.
