Au Temps Perdu/
Heian Shrine: Tea
shop

¤Data
Au Temps Perdu has a
grand location -
Higashiyama to the
east, Heian-jingu to
the north and the
Shirakawa River out
front. But the food,
although tasty, is
in miniature.

What I recall as a
robust pate sandwich
set for Y1500 has
been downsized to a
boxed picnic lunch
served in what looks
like a takeout noo-
dle carton from the
States. In the lower
half is a roast pork
salad with cornichon
and shallot dressing
and two slices of
pain de campagne.
The top half is a
bento a la francaise
- two slices of duck
liver pate, carrot
salad, a slice of
cheese, a slice of
quiche and a slice
of cake. Unfortu-
nately the whole is
less than the sum of
its parts.

Au Temps Perdu does,
however, have an
extensive range of
teas from La Melang-
ee - a Mariage
Freres rival at half
the price. A pot of
tea is included in
the Y1500 set, and
it is of generous
proportion. As Au
Temps Perdu is a
salon de thé there
is no coffee. But
there is alcohol,
some of which has a
south-of-the-Pyre-
nees provenance;
sherry, cava, wine
by the glass, and
beer by the Carls-
berg bottle are all
Y500. If you haven't
reached a "hara-
hachi-bunme" level
of sufficiency by
the end of your
meal, the takeout
pates and desserts
will get you there.
