Cheese makes you happy and chatty
The exterior of Gelee Blanche catches the eye with the stylish old Japanese warehouse. Sanae Shimoda, the manager and a cheese professional, runs this restaurant. After her experience as an employee for a company, she jumped to the new world of cheese and gained experience at a cheese specialty store as an importer, and opened her shop in 2005. In some showcases, lots of cheese are displayed and are waiting for you. Quality cheese and take-out are just one of the highlights.
"Fall in Love" seatingOne attraction of this shop is to listen to the professional talk. Some regulars are the managers of chefs, owners of wineries, sake brewers, and so on. They gather and exchange their views frankly, so you have a chance to listen to their conversation at the shop. Also there is seating called "fall in love," where some couple start dating. Are you interested in falling love with someone?
Ms. Shimoda says " Cheese can be a main dish, and sometimes can be a side dish. I hope visitors enjoy drinking some alcohol with the quality cheese.”
Specialties: Cheese pizza (1250 yen), Pasta for vegetarian (1250 yen)
