   Have you tried our flapjacks? Made with Lyle's Golden Syrup they are a delicious and 'healthy' snack!

New Fence

  During Golden Week I spent a couple of days re-making the fence at the rear of The Three Little Pigs, as the old fence had rotted away and last year's typhoons finished it off.

  Here's a before and after picture of the fence.

A Soup Fit for Popeye

  This week's soup is Creamy Spinach, as it seems to be in season at the moment.

  A soup that Popeye would certainly enjoy before he climbs that mountain!

Potato & Anchovy Quiche

 Inspired by Len Deighton’s French Cooking for Men, this week's quiche is Potato & Anchovy.

 As well as cook books Len Deighton has written a ton of great novels, mostly of the spy genre. Highly recommended.

Cashless last!

Finally we are able to accept cashless payments, either by the major credit cards Visa (including Visa Debit,) Mastercard, JCB, Diners and American Express.

Or we are also set up for what in Japan is called 'denshi money' (電子マネー) which translates directly as 'electronic money' or I suppose a better term would be 'electronic payments'. Sorry for the digression, we can take iD, QUICPay, WAON, nanaco, Edy, Suica and PASMO.

So I think we've got it covered.

I must also say a big thank you to Yasuda-san from JMS for hs time, as we'd almost given up on electronic payments because every system we looked at seemed overly complicated, or too dependent on Apple hardware.

4th Year Anniversary

 Happy 4th anniversary! Yesterday, March 1st, marked the completion of our 4th year in business at The Three Little Pigs.

 The date had totally slipped our minds until one of our regular customers presented us with this gorgeous bunch of flowers!

 We can't believe it's been four years already since we first opened the doors!

 A big thank you to all our customers for your continued support!
