Summer in Japan Pt.3

Lunch set with oyakodon and udon. Carb-loading. Nothing compares to the shaved ice in Japan, with their soft ice, delicious flavorings, and drizzle of condensed milk.   So when I’m in Japan it is very typical of me to be carrying around at least two or three different drinks. I can never decide what to…

Summer in Japan Pt.2

This was a super cute coffee/breakfast shop in Tokyo, and they had the most amazing bread! This little stall is right outside of the Shibamata station. I had to stop for the smell of yakisoba. 

Summer in Japan

Last May I spent some time in Japan. Here is what I ate. First, plane food.   The menu for this flight. I chose the beef tenderloin with gnocchi for dinner, the cheese plate for dessert, and the omelette for breakfast. Oh, and a little drink to start the flight off. Cheers! Post-flight, we stopped…

Home Cooked Meals Ed.1

One year later and I am back! I guess I lost my inspiration for a while but today I decided it was time to get back to work on this blog project of mine. I never stopped taking photos of food so I have so much content that I don’t even know where to begin….

SkinnyFats

Took a quick trip to Las Vegas last week. Found a gem called SkinnyFats that has a two part menu- half “healthy” and half “happy”.  I ended up visiting twice in the four days I was there, but managed to order from the “healthy” side both times. Although I did add truffle fries, oops. This…

The Capital Grille

I went back to my hometown of Dallas, Texas this past March. Had a belated birthday dinner at The Capital Grille in the Shops at Legacy. Maine oysters, steak tartare, filet mignon, filet oscar, and crème brûlée I also had to get some sushi on my trip When you’re too excited to eat your sushi,…

Kauaʻi, Hawai’i

Feeling pretty lucky that I was able to visit Hawai’i this weekend. I flew to the Kaua’i island just north of O’ahu. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, not to mention everything I ate was incredible. The first night I ate at JJ’s Broiler in Lihue. We ordered the sashimi appetizer,…

Chin’s Seafood and Grill

My friends are moving to my hometown, Dallas, and their farewell dinner was at Chin’s Seafood and Grill in San Diego. The menu was preset so, unfortunately, I don’t know the names of each dish. We had a chicken salad, shrimp two ways, fish, pork, seafood noodles, beef in gravy, and a dumpling desert soup….

September in Japan Part 3

After over a week in Tokyo, we had one last lunch with one of our cousins who lives there and then rode the bullet train to our hometown Shiogama, near Sendai. I couldn’t tell you what half of these things were, but it wasn’t as good as it looks. The desert was incredible though. Home cooked Japanese…

Japan in September Part 2

We had all day to explore Tokyo, so we made several little bite stops around the city. First stop, Harajuku. Crêpes & Takoyaki. Crème brûlée with strawberry and vanilla ice cream. Chicken Karaage. And of course some more sushi (negitoro, uni, sake, hirame).

Japan in September Part 1

My first post definitely needs to include my favorite- Japan and Japanese food. It is a place I frequent often, and my most recent visit was in September of 2015. Airplane Food. Some kind of fish with mushrooms, carrot and wrapped rice. Meh.   We arrived at night, so we decided make a quick stop into…
