Will do. Pls note that we don’t eat accordingly to a list, we just go to an area an eat what looks good. I’ll post some pictures that will mostly give you an idea of how and what we eat. Your mileage will invariably vary.
From our 2015 trip:
At Tsukiji, the famous oyakodon “chicken and egg bowl”. We had sushi as well, of course, but that is a given. This place is famous for this dish, and the queues can be very long at peak times.
Fugu (pufferfish) was on my bucket list. So we indulge in a dinner set, at a semi-chain restaurant. Very reasonable at about USD$100 for dinner for two and bottle of wine.
Fish skin salad. Sashimi sliced thick, and thin. Deep fried.
Finished with a nabe of puffer fish skin, frame and fresh vegetables. The “pot” itself was a parchment lined wicker basket on an induction stove. Quite novel.
Our first Japanese ramen was at the ubiquitous chain, Ichiran. We’ve eaten at a few local ramen shops since, but Ichiran is very good.
A hole in the wall near Mitsumine Shrine. Japanese surf and turf: horse sashimi and whale sashimi. The horse was sweet on the tongue and tender, so good. The whale was a tad fishy, yeah, I know whales are mammals.
Riccio Mania, Japan meets Italy. Uni, meet pasta.
Hana No Mai: Denny’s, Tokyo style. We sat at a broad bar, our future dinner staring at us inches away. Fried chicken cartilage. I think that was aji. Horse again, mix of lean and fatty. Some sushi, just because.
This should give you an idea of how we roll. I’ll put up our 2016 trip shortly.
