    solid & liquid Reading Style Project Tenjin

    In the IMS (イムズ) building near Nishitetsu Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station, there are small boutique style shops with a focus on local products. It's a lot less crowded than Tenjin Core or Parco, which makes for a better window shopping experience.

    When it was lunchtime, I saw this bookstore cafe and decided to try it out. There are lots of cute design products and stationary, a lot of it coffee related, on the bookstore side. The cafe had photos of a shiba-ken puppy and a video projected so guests could be entertained watching the puppy playing. Maybe I'm the only one who was interested. Plenty of seating and a comfortable space.

    There are set menus to choose from and good portion sizes. I got a crispy chicken curry which was on special for 500 yen, (originally 780 yen) and made it a drink set for an extra 250 yen – for a latte, about 250 ml. Soup, salad, gratin, sandwiches, and desserts are also available.

    The food wasn't overly fancy or pretentious, but had more of a home made feeling. The homemade curry roux had no visible vegetables and was served over a few pieces of kara-age. It was topped with one almond and a couple dried cranberries. I wish the curry had more almonds and dried cranberries, as it was a little on the spicy side, and that sweetness helped. The curry also had a bit of a tomato flavor, which I didn't love, but I could still eat it.

    Good relaxing environment and nice food for the price, I'd go there again.
