Tokyo : Urth Caffé Daikanyama

Tengo la tensión bastante baja, así que necesito empezar el día con un café (solo) gigante y un buen desayuno. De ahí que durante los viajes, este momento se convierta a menudo en la comida estrella del día. En la que te sientas a planear lo que vas a hacer, compartes unas fotos del día anterior o respiras hondo, pensando en cómo irá el customer meeting. A menudo, la tripa - normalmente llena de verduras y pescado - se resiente de especias, arroz y carne, a las que no estoy acostumbrada. De ahí que siempre termine buscando sitios de brunch en los que reiniciar mi organismo y recuperar el bienestar en lo que me queda de viaje.

Urth Caffé Daikanyama - el barrio de Tokyo donde vivimos casi 3 años - es bastante especial, principalmente porque habré pasado por la puerta unos tres millones de veces (era parte de mi ruta preferida, caminando 15 min desde casa hasta el famoso cruce de Shibuya) pero nunca encontré el momento de probarlo. A veces la vida te da una segunda oportunidad y creo que la aproveché al máximo en este segundo viaje. Los que seguís a Rumi Neely, estáis acostumbrados a sus post en los que siempre aparece con un almond latte en el branch de LA, que es de donde viene este cadena que se centra en productos 100% orgánicos, con presencia en el US West Coast. En Mayo de 2014 abrieron otro en Omotesando, dado el éxito del primero que estaba siempre lleno de adolescentes, expat wives y ladies who lunch.

Soy una fanática de los huevos, así que probé los Eggs Benedict with Salmon y el Egg & Avocado Sandwich, además de los zumos orgánicos y un café gigante. Es más caro que Starbucks (que por cierto, en Tokyo es de lo más barato que hay) pero merece la pena, porque con un brunch así llegas casi sin hambre hasta la cena - cuanto menos paras, más te da tiempo a ver (^ * ^)


As brunch aficionado, this is my sweet spot in Tokyo. Urth Caffé is the place for an organic brunch in the heart of Shibuya. Ironically, I think I passed by the entrance like a gazillion times during the 3 years we lived in Daikanyama, but never quite made it there. Well, life sometimes gives a second chance and trust me I made the most of it. While traveling around Asia, I often end up with some kind of tummy trouble, as I am not used to eat so much meat, spices and rice. Organic everything is a good way to reboot and keep going. Give it a shot if you happen to be in town.

Urth Caffé Daikanyama also has a nice outdoor space, but to get a spot in there, better come during weekdays.

This time, egg & avocado sandwich was not sold out (^ * ^) and it immediately became my absolute favourite.

For those of you asking about prices, here's a picture of the menu (1000円 is 7.34€ or 8$ at the time of writing) e.g. Avocado Egg Sandwich with a large americano is like 15€. Coffee is relatively more expensive, but hey these are 100% organic fairtrade beans. At some point I feel we got used to extremely cheap food so we no longer consider that good stuff does not come for free and when it is that cheap, well it just means someone is cutting corners where they shouldn't be cut - just means suffering (of animals not treated properly, of underage workers, of natural resources being overused).
