“Enjoy life sip by sip, not gulp by gulp.”
- The Minister of Leaves
An afternoon tea party isn’t a bad idea, especially if you’re spending it at Aomori, a dainty café, bakery, and grocery store in Greenhills area. Literally translated as “blue-green forest”, Aomori was named after the capital city of Aomori Prefecture in Northern Tokyo, Japan. With kitchen crew trained by master bakers from Backaldrin in Jordan and a Taiwanese professor who makes soft and tasty pastries and breads and with dishes created by celebrity Chef Sau Del Rosario, the Cafe aims to serve healthy delicacies and offer healthy products from around the world.
The first few things I noticed the moment I enter were the velvet couches, chandelier, and pretty tea sets and coffee makers, giving the café an elegant lounge-feel.
The café offers all-day breakfast and as they claim healthy ala-carte meals and teas. Let’s see.

help protect against a boatload of cancers

It was indeed healthy and a total pleasure dining at Aomori.
Take time to savor life and may your heart feel lighter today.
