Tori Chataro とり茶太郎 1st visit — interesting to see both chicken and guineafowl being served. Loved the yolk/chicken wing/grilled cheese combination. The skewers were richly flavored but slightly drying. •




#foodgasm #yum #eat #foodpic #foodpics #foodphotography... More

Manoir マノワ 1st visit — classic decor and French cuisine with focus on game. Both portion sizes and seasoning are on the heavier side for Japanese standard. Good value hearty meal and very decent wine list. •




#foodgasm #yum #eat #foodpic #foodpics #foodphotography... More

Noyashichi の弥七 2nd visit — this time the dishes were milder and more Cantonese compared to the first time where more Szechuan dishes were served. The braised fukahire and awabi was tasty though slightly watery. Crab fried rice was perfectly cooked. •




#foodgasm #yum #eat #foodpic #foodpics... More

Ginza Bia 美会 1st visit — tucked away in a small back alley in Ginza, casual, almost a little quirky setting, fusion of Thai spices and Japanese ingredients showing the owner’s Thai roots. Uni with lemongrass sauce was an interesting combination. The curry rice was tasty but on the sweet side. Overall interesting concept and good quality food,... More

13 Roumier Bussiere — dark fruit dominant, firm, concentrated and muscular
88 Louis Remy CdlR — first vintage under Chantal Remy. Nicely aged, light bodied, rustic old school style, still got some juicy fruit. Interesting bottle.
11 Miriors Les Saugettes Poulsard — I do appreciate the purity and elegance but the price tag is just too irrational.





#wine... More

Kutan 久丹 3rd visit — a lot of grilled dishes this time: ayu (bigger and less bitter as season progresses); aoyagi clam (fresh and crunchy); and torigai (rich and sweet). King salmon and leek shabu was delicious. First time dining in the private room, chef made an effort to grill and shabu table side, but seating at the counter is still more fun.... More

Azabu Saotome 麻布さおとめ 1st visit — chef recently closed his 1 Michelin start restaurant Kaiseki Den in Hong Kong and returned to Japan. The meal was a hybrid of kaiseki and sushi which was interesting. Chef was very focused and precise. Nice flow of dishes and not too stuffy. Overall a good dinner but nothing extremely memorable. •




#foodgasm... More

Kusunoki くすのき 3rd visit — this place remains my favorite tempura restaurant. Lavish ingredients, weightless texture, perfect seasoning. Early summer season highlights are honmasu topped with its roe; super sweet corn; soft and juicy tachiuo that melts in your mouth; and of course the huge and flavorful abalone. •




#foodgasm... More

Black fruit and Asian spices, very rich palate. Great power and concentration for a village though almost a little too ripe..
