44 days since moving to Tokyo and tonight is one of the best I have so far in terms of company! We brought an American guest to izakaya Uoshin Ginza 魚真 銀座店 and as you can imagine, the sake/beer/umeshu (that last girly drink is for me!) flow steadily along with an array of delicious “bar grub”. Assorted sashimi, nokezushi, kegani, simmered nodoguro, fried potato shreds salad, now excuse me while I go into #foodgoma

This Tsujiri 辻利 is not the same Tsujiri in Singapore. A long established teahouse in Uji, it has opened a take-away outlet at the newest chi-chi mall in Tokyo — Ginza Six. An exclusive to said mall, the “extra rich” matcha soft serve is expectedly good but I’m one of those annoying customers who want a stronger dose of matcha ha.

K and I once queued at Midori Sushi Ginza 梅丘寿司の美登利銀座店 for more than 2 hours omg. The quality is not worth such a long queue but I guess we like to do crazy things like that. Compared to the kaiten sister restaurant, I prefer the “proper” sushi branches because the set menu is of great value and the staff is always willing to accommodate my un-Japanese-ish “I want to change A for B” requests. My first visit to Midori was in 2011 and kudos to them for maintaining the consistency over the years. Anago, chutoro and the complimentary kani miso salad are the best here!

Hi I’m back in Tokyo! The first thing I crave for is not sushi or sashimi but unagi. I really love those slippery fatty eels so much! A colleague brought an American guest and I to めぐろ大黒屋, an unagi specialty shop near the office and my unagi don totally fix my craving, thank you eel you didn’t die for nothing!

I didn’t expect to have Thai food in Seattle but never say never. A colleague and his wife kindly invited us to dinner at Pung Kang Noodle Place because they are going to move to Tokyo too so it’s a good bonding session. If you are wondering what’s underneath the broccoli and capsicums, it’s fried salmon curry! Too sweet and I should have asked for extra extra spicy ha.

“No meat, no pizza, no pasta”, that’s what I told my awesome boss/friend when we were discussing where to have lunch. Admittedly it was a challenge but he didn’t disappoint me with McDonald’s or some crappy place! The grilled arctic char with chickpeas from Mistral Kitchen is tasty enough to make me wipe my plate clean. This is one of those happy moments where food and company are equally good, thank you Ryan!

I’ll be in Seattle for 3 weeks so I’m going to miss sushi, sashimi and Japanese food very very much! Before my flight at Narita Airport, here’s my last-ditch attempt to have a proper #byebyejapan meal: negitoro and marinated tuna don from Tsukiji Sushi Iwa 築地寿司岩. Perfect fuel for the long flight ahead!
