Teppei Syokudo – Get Your Barachirashi Fix at Takashimaya

The Teppei empire is expanding fast and furious, moving to quick service branches (Teppei Syukudo) in Takashimaya and Millenia Walk.  We can now get a bowl of their barachirashi (Kaisen don) easily. The bowl of overflowing sashimi ($16) was assembled after order. It was generously portioned and highly satisfying. I also tried a few of their fried items in other visits but found them toRead More

The chirashi bowl is one of my favourite Japanese dishes. My usual go-to place is Aoki – well known for their high quality mazechirashi.

[Seoul] Off the Beaten Track

Noryangjin Fish Market What can be a better immersive experience than spending a couple of hours in the largest fish market in Seoul? We toured the market (got used to rude stares), ruined our shoes, held a live octopus and picked fresh seafood for our lunch.

HBD, Twice!

Another year, another candle. We celebrated this milestone at Narisawa which turned out to be really apt for this special occasion. We couldn’t get a reservation via the online system and were rather disappointed. We started searching for another alternative but decided to make one last attempt by calling the restaurant directly – After some pleading (and more pleading), we gotRead More
