Oh man, the beautiful aroma when my uni omelette was served. I really wish you can smell it! うに屋のあまごころ at Tokyo Station specializes in uni and the menu is all about sea urchin. I was plenty pleased with my choice — fluffy and runny ふわふわ omelette topped with briny uni sauce (though the piece of uni ain’t worth raving about). So much love for this and less than half the price of Mercer Brunch’s!

If you saw my IG stories or if we are FB friends, you would know that I trained out of Tokyo to Satte, Saitama, for the most beautiful view of canola fields flanked with rows and rows of sakura trees! Truly breathtaking and it made me so happy!

Ok, back to food. Most people go for bento boxes when taking train rides in Japan but I prefer the simple tamago sando (egg sandwich) from Amanoya 天のや. Ignore the dry bread; just focus on the custardy egg slathered with an addictive wasabi mayo spread. Too much love for this.

Hello uni omelette!! Went to Mercer Brunch just for that but ended up with two same-same-but-different plates on the table, score. Because there’s uni, and there’s lobster. The latter has a reddish tinge from the fresh tomato lobster cream sauce and I like the slight sweetness. The one with uni has a more briny flavour so it really depends on personal preference. Worth a try but pity that the texture is not as fluffy as La Mère Poulard’s!

Lunching around Meguro is great as there are a lot of options and the office lunch crowd is not as crazy as the CBD area. My Japanese colleagues brought me to つきはし, a restaurant hidden on L4 of a building (sorry I don’t know the name). People who work around here obviously know this place; it was packed and we snagged the last table yay. My negitoro don was wonderful with plenty of leeks (which I love), natto, tororo (gooey grated yam) and a gorgeous onsen egg. 1,000円 well spent!
