trying out all the snacks I got from Japan 😋 I need a cup of tea now.

back at Taishoken for tsukemen, can't beat the best.

the broth is as good as I remembered it to be. out of all the tsukemen that I have eaten on this trip, by far, this is still my favourite.

located down a dingy looking alley is an unassuming little joint that serves up torikatsu (chicken katsu). this place is run by two old ladies, they were friendly and polite whilst churning out food for everyone at the counter. they have other items on the menu but I highly recommend going straight for the torikatsu. for only $8, this meal was tasty and very satisfying.

omakase lunch at Sushi いわ.

it was an impromptu last minute decision to make a reservation here but thankfully, I was able to.

the chef was a delight to watch as he moved swiftly in his zone and even better, when I had the best seat in the house. not only did I have the best seat in the house, I somehow managed to receive extra attention from the chef. besides noticing I was left-handed and arranged everything to suit me, out of everyone else who only got one refill of pickled ginger, I got three.

I would happily come back here for omakase. thanks @littleporkguy for pointing me in this direction.

Kanmidokoro Hatsune's signature shiratama anmitsu.

anmitsu is a traditional Japanese dessert of kanten jelly topped with red bean paste and other ingredients - shiratama, gyuuhi, kuromame and seasonal fruits. 
you get a choice of shiro mitsu or kuro mitsu (clear or dark syrup). I prefer the kuro mitsu as it wasn't as sweet and had a slight earthiness to it.

thanks Kantoro! 😛

Fuunji has been around since 2007 and it's still going strong. 
The tsukemen comes with a creamy broth of chicken and fish topped with smoked fish powder, delicious and doesn't leave you feeling icky.

I prefer Fuunji's tsukemen to Rokurinsha as I found the lather a bit too rich for my liking. it's still a very delicious bowl but Fuunji's was more comforting for me.

burnt miso ramen.

please excuse my french but this bowl of ramen was fucking amazing! the broth was rich, smokey and full of flavour…that first sip of the broth I took was love at first sight. if one can have an intimate moment with food, this was it for me. I was smiling after every bite, every spoonful was so delicious and full of umami.

how does Gogyo achieve the burnt miso broth? the miso broth is cooked in 300°C lard, heated in a wok that ignites flames in the kitchen. I wasn’t sitting at the counter but from where I was, it was definitely a sight to behold.

this has just become my favourite bowl of ramen ever, I am definitely going to miss Gogyo’s burnt miso ramen.

you can never go wrong with a chicken and egg dish. 
this bowl of oyako-don was cooked perfectly; sprinkle the sansho pepper generously to your liking and you'll have one kick ass comforting meal.

Hachikian is located on the 7th floor of Takashimaya Kyoto.

an unexpected bowl of ramen.

this place wasn't on my list of ramen joints to eat but oh boy, this definitely did not disappoint! the broth, though made with pork...at first sip, it almost had a smokey duck flavour to it.

the special bowl was only 850 yen which is super cheap and if you are not a big eater, the mini is only 550 yen, it will still fill you up! the gyoza are worth ordering too.

the queue for this place will always be long but it's worth the wait. a cheap, simple and no fuss ramen joint.

tamakake-meshi.

this restaurant is all about their fresh eggs. to be exact, raw eggs on rice, accompanied by miso soup and pickles. I ordered mine with ikura and mentaiko.

the best part about this place is that you get FREE refills on rice and raw eggs, come hungry!

since 1915, the Fujihashi family has been supplying fresh eggs to their customers. apparently, the chickens listen to classical music such as Mozart.

horse sashimi. 
the first time I had horse meat was back in 2009 in an izakaya in Funabashi, served tataki style.

this time around, I was served three cuts; back, body and neck (the square cut ones). it taste just like beef except the meat is more lean. my favourite cut was surprising the neck, it was chewy and very gelatinous.

cold spicy tsukemen.

it may be summer in Japan but this was super refreshing, dipping the cold noodles in a cold spicy dipping sauce.

the spicy level ranges from 1-100 but I decided to keep it mild and went for level 2. I do not want to deal with the ring of fire, no thanks.

hiroshima-style okonomiyaki.

this is one huge serving of okonomiyaki, I only managed to finish 80% of it. I added cheese and spring onions, you can see how generous they are with the spring onions...unlike back home.

first order of business, tsukemen.

this bowl of broth did not disappoint; simmered for more than 10 hours - pork and chicken bones, dried baby sardines, smoked mackerel flakes and bonito flakes. d e l i c i o u s.

the founder of Rokurinsha, Ryosei Mita trained under the master of tsukumen himself, Kazuo Yamagishi from Taishoken.

I have tasted and thoroughly enjoyed both of their tsukemen but if I had to choose one, it will have to be Taishoken's tsukemen. I don't know how to really describe Taishoken's broth except that it's distinct and absolutely fantastic.

Missing the infamous steak sandwich from Shima.

I would happily pay $75 again for the sandwich, it was just so damn good.

On a side note, I still think Rihanna, @badgalriri is a bitch for ruining my last meal in Tokyo. Just because you are a celebrity, you don't get to treat everyone else at the restaurant like shit just because you were there wining and dining with your boyfriend, Hassan Jameel.

Just stumbled across some gossip that the both of you broke up; I hope so, that's how petty I am being, and I'm glad that I have never ever paid for any of your music.

I will never understand people who idolise celebrities but even so, you shouldn't be one of them.

Life is short, it's so much more precious than we know. I still can't believe you are gone, I am not a fan of many celebrities but you were a legend, a true badass and no one is ever going to come close to you. In a world full of fluff, you were a breath of fresh air and always will be, your legacy is going to live on.

It was only recently I went to a restaurant that was #anthonybourdainapproved in Tokyo, enjoyed an amazing omakase meal by Yasuda-san, a chef that you called an old friend. Your recommendations have never let anyone down, certainly not me and now, I'm craving a banh mi from Banh Mi Phuong because of you. I'm still so sad that the world has lost a truly amazing person but you will never be forgotten.

RIP Anthony Bourdain.

SAVOURY FRENCH TOAST 😍

parmesan crusted brioche - poached egg - king brown mushroom - crispy pancetta - potato & leek puree

I have never had savoury french toast before but this has opened my eyes! so so good; the fluffy brioche, that silky smooth puree and everything was so perfectly seasoned. @hendrikscafe

@missblondon2017, just for you. 
I got the bounty custard donut from @danielsdonutsspringvale and to be honest, it was okay...nothing to rave about. Yes, I know they have a following and there's a queue that's out the door but to me, they are just average donuts from a bakery with fancier filling. The donut itself I find lacks a certain "oomph" to it, it just doesn't tickle my tastebuds and not something I want to waste my calories on (the other half of the donut went to the husband). And you should know by now, I love my food and if it's amazing, I would have no issues demolishing the entire thing. 
Sorry Daniel but you have nothing of @shortstopmelbourne.

Note: this is my third time having Daniel's Donut so it's not a biased review on their donuts.

I am a sucker for a good bowl of boat noodles. 
the one at @sabbderthairestaurant is good, the broth is dark and intense and has good flavours. 
I know that the defining ingredient in its broth is fresh pig's blood, though I'm not a fan, I am willing to turn a blind eye because as they say, "what you can't see, you pretend it's not there"...I may have just made that saying up on the spot.

bo-ssam + fried chicken. 
it's been a while since I've visited Mook Ji, the food is still as delicious as always! also, it was my first time trying bo-ssam after discovering this dish in countless of k-dramas. I can say that it won't be the last time that I will be ordering bo-ssam 😋

how to eat bo-ssam:
- place a leaf of cabbage in the palm of your hand
- add a piece of pork belly
- top with oyster radish salad and shrimp sauce
- wrap it up and shove it in your mouth like a lady.

kichi kichi omu rice was definitely one of the highlights for me in Kyoto.

that fluffy omelette sliced open by the man himself, Chef Motokichi Yukimura and topped with the delicious demi-glace sauce. 
how I wish I could have this for dinner tonight.

take me back to Japan so I can spend $70 on strawberry perfection.

no strawberries will ever come close to how fragrant and delicious these ones from Sembikiya were.

will I spend that much money on strawberries again if I was in Japan? Hell yeah.

if I had to eat only one type of laksa for the rest of my life, it would be assam laksa.

when I was in primary school, the canteen lady would make this quite spicy but even as a child, I would devour two bowls of it and burn later.

this assam laksa at Laksa King ticked all the right boxes for my mum and I; the broth was thick and flavourful, you could tell they didn't stinge with the fish when making the broth. I'll definitely be back for more when I need a fix.

- YUZU gelato -

Last Sunday, a “food blogger” decided to give @bekugelato a 1 star rating on Zomato because the owner was delayed in opening her store by 10 minutes. 
Her review was along the lines of “…has tough competition with the likes of Zero Gradi and Pidapipo down the road. Came here with high expectations at opening time only to be faced with an empty store and not a soul in sight. Stuck around for a bit but still no one and no social media updates on issues back of house. Contacted via social media to find out there were staff back of house that didn’t bother to check for customers at the front. Hopefully these teething issues are sorted out soon”. I was quite disappointed/infuriated because this person decided to post such a scathing review that neglected to tell the truth, that the owner of Beku Gelato apologised profusely and even offered her a free double scoop the next time she visits. Also, the reason she was delayed in opening her store by 10 minutes was because her son was unwell, is she supposed to update social media and tell everyone about her personal issues? 
Yes, the owner of Beku Gelato is my friend but as a decent human being, I couldn’t stand by and watch this “food blogger” think she had the right to just bad mouth a place online without telling the whole truth. I wrote back a reply to her review stating the above and also, “It’s disappointing just because you have the power to review/write that you abuse it. People like you shouldn’t be writing at all when you are just out to criticise small business owners who are just trying to make a living.” The problem with today’s society, people lack empathy and compassion, and some think they are entitled to whatever they want. REALITY CHECK, the world doesn’t owe you anything. *post continued in comments*

the infamous steak sandwich from Shima.

look at how beautiful the sandwich is stuffed with all that steak 😍 had this as takeaway last night and just ate it on the train this morning whilst on our way to Narita Airport. it was just over 10 hours before we devoured this and the steak was still so tender and soft. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

Last meal in Tokyo, saved it for Shima.

The sirloin steak I had was cooked to perfection of medium rare and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.

It would have been a great last night in Tokyo if it wasn't for Rihanna (@badgalriri) who decided to eat at the same restaurant. I have never paid much attention to Hollywood or the celebrity scene so when you decided to "grace" us with your presence, it would have been nice if you had decided to sit at a quiet table in the corner of the restaurant instead of at the front counter getting chummy with your guy friend ruining it for everyone else who was there for the food. I absolutely did not appreciate being told off by your bodyguards for using my phone when they assumed I was trying to take a photo of you. I was not interested in you, I was interested in my food. Having to observe other people being told off too when they were just using their phones or seeing your bodyguards telling off the older couple sitting next to me who wanted to take a photo of the steak sandwich being made ruined the experience for us and everyone else at the restaurant. 
If you wanted privacy, you should have just booked out the whole place, I am sure you could have afforded it. Unlike you, we are not rich and famous, the rest of us fork out a fair amount of money to eat at Shima and to enjoy the experience without being harassed by your bodyguards.

I cannot fault Shima for what happened tonight. As we left the restaurant, the maitre d' was extremely apologetic and when she found out we were on our honeymoon, she gave us a cheesecake on the house as congratulations.

tsukemen at its best at Taishoken.

the late Kazuo Yamagishi was called "The God of Ramen" as he is the one who invented tsukemen in 1961.

I may not have gone to any of the Michelin starred ramen places but this place has an amazing tasting broth that pairs so well with the noodles and the queue was out the door.

not sure why but I was one of the only three girls during lunch time and the other two were school girls.

kichi kichi omurice.

the amount of infamous videos I have seen of Chef Motokichi Yukimura making the most delicious-looking omurice over the years has plagued me and I never thought I would finally get to see the man himself in action and taste his food!

the omelette was so fluffy and with the combination of the rice and demi-glace sauce...YUM!

🍜 no ramen no life 🍜

Menbakaichidai has been serving fire ramen for more than 30 years. 
You can definitely feel the heat in this place when they pour the hot oil over the ramen.

Highly entertaining and the ramen is tasty too!
