Panino Giusto Encore

Panino Giusto

It’s midweek and I’m dying to crawl into my comfy bed to catch some zzz’s just about now.  But, I’ve been feeling guilty for being behind on my blogging, so here goes a short post to share some overdue photos.




Work hasn’t been exactly a breeze recently, so I’ve been easing my work pain with delicious meals on the weekends.  And last weekend when I was craving Japanese food again, we had an impromptu lunch at the fabulous Inagiku, located in IFC mall, adjacent to the Four Seasons.

I read on Yoku Moku’s website, the key to their delicate and crispy Yoku Moku cookies is the “golden balance” of the natural ingredients including butter, sugar, eggs, flour, almonds and vanilla. And they claim the secret flavor to their cookies is the Hokkaido butter [and if I were to venture a guess, lots of it].
