Shirokiya keeps getting better and better. The Yataimura, the beer garden and have you seen the beer towers they’re now offering in the beer garden!? It’s like having your own tap at your table. Except maybe not as classy since it’s just Bud and Kirin on offer. The second floor underwent a bit of change, too, with the new bakery/dessert shop Kulu Kulu offering cakes and confections. (Not that sweets were ever more than a spoon’s throw away, with St. Germain and Palme D’Or on the same mall level.) In the Japanese style, the cakes are soft and light, not too sweet. My favorite: the roll cake, with tender, fluffy cake with just a touch of richness.
