Sweet Peachy Land - Peach cafe Nakanishi
Hello viewers! I am Silvia from Italy, a new entry in this blog.
It's my first week here in Yamanashi Prefecture but I immediately felt the need to explore this countryside city. The funniest way to discover a place is ... to eat local food.
Yamanashi Prefecture is famous for its fruit, mainly peaches, and grapes. I have to say they taste different from the fruit of my country.
Today I want to take you with me to Peach Café Nakanishi, a small café with 20 seats located next to a road in the middle of orchards.
First tip! If you want to go there, you should go when the cafe opens or otherwise it would be better to book in advance, as you could wait even more than an hour.
Second tip! The place is a bit far away I would recommend going by car or if you don't have one, going by take a taxi (parking place are available).
As its name suggests, the shop bases all its cooking on peach. From sweet to savory, peaches are used in all possible combinations. The menu is divided by season, summer and winter.
As a sweet lover, I immediately chose the parfait 麗しの夏パフェ (Uruwashi no Natsu pafe).
The parfait is made of peaches jam and peaches in syrup, cream, vanilla ice cream decorated with huge slices of peach. All the fruit on the parfait is from the orchard near the café.
I had never tasted such delicious peaches.
Something caught my eye, the peach pizza (ピーチピザ) and as an Italian, I could not help but be shocked.
"Fruit and pizza together? What an oddity. I have to try it!"
At the risk of being accused of not being Italian by Italians pizza patriots, I have to admit it was not that bad but only strange. The pizza is made of a thin dough, above which are arranged slices of peach covered with cheese. The cheese prevails as a flavour but it is softened by the peach-sweet tip.
If you are looking for new flavours I would say that this could be a new starting point.
After this beautiful feast and time to start marching, discovering new places, flavours, and foods.
