NNAKA

nnaka los angeles

Nnaka is a small restaurant with a simple menu. It consists of three options – modern kaiseki, chef’s tasting or vegetarian – but in no way should it be confused with being basic or thoughtless. Each option has anywhere from 9 to 13 courses. And each dish is made with fresh seasonal ingredients delicately mixed to ensure that flavors play off one another in a balanced way.

At the helm of Nnaka is chef and owner Niki Nakayama, who studied the culinary art of kaiseko – a traditional multi-course meal that pays special attention to balancing the taste, texture and appearance. Her studies played a major role in the restaurants’ philosophy. As she states, “Nnaka is committed to creating a meal that will engage your attention – it’s about enjoying the moment, the current offerings of the season, and ultimately, the food in front of you.” Visit Nnaka if you’re in the Los Angeles area.

ALEXIS BOOKS AND COFFEE

alexis books coffee

A small shop packed with books, magazines and good coffee sounds like heaven to us. It’s the ideal formula. And it’s one that Slovakia’s Alexis Books and Coffee Bar have nailed perfectly. Creatively offering more than your typical big box retailer, Alexis matches substance with ingenuity. Enormous book shelves line the walls brimming with a range of titles. While their amphitheater style flooring and low level coffee tables provide visitors with a place to sit anywhere. The shop also doubles as a great location for talks, community panels and readings. We’d love to see more places like this pop up state side. Click Read More for additional information and photos.

TOKYO'S BEAR POND

bear pond coffee

We have a serious coffee addiction. We’ll travel anywhere, no matter how far, to experience delicious coffee and espresso. So when we heard about Tokyo’s Bear Pond Espresso we were elated. After 18 years of being a certified barista in New York, Katsu enlisted the help of his wife Chisa to open Bear Pond in 2009. Housed in a small unassuming building, Bear Pond is all about serving the best coffee and espresso possible. There’s a skillful artistry to growing coffee beans, roasting them and ultimately preparing the drink that is thoughtfully planned and perfectly executed by the owners. To ensure consistent taste, Bear Pond not only works closely with roaster <a href=“http://nori443.com/” target_blank">Noriaki Yoshime, but the espresso is only made by Katsu – no one else – and is served only during the hours of 10am to 2pm. Bear Pond’s espresso has a distinctive taste with a hint of chocolate, spice and salt that is raved about by many. Not for the faint at heart, the taste is bold and hits you like a ton of bricks.
