An eye-catching, first-floor motorcycle display is among various motorcycles showcased by the owner, a big fan. Upstairs, the main seating area, with its huge industrial extractor fan and exhaust pipes, is a striking contrast to the brightly-decorated first floor. Food is mainly light meals and the Travelling Double-Layered Tart of Assorted Flavor is a signature dish, with the daily-varying tart flavors such as a chewy and aromatic shrimp version. Besides afternoon tea, afternoon wine is another good option, including sake, sparkling wine and a special organic German wine. Fried crispy fries and Japanese-style deep-fried Karaage Chicken Nuggets are great complements to these drinks. --By Sharon Zhang, translated by Alicia Yu
