Matsuri123 Japanese Food Stadium, Shanghai

November 9, 2008 in Bon Cheesepetit

Best.

I want to name this my favorite restaurant in the world.

 

Address: 上海市长宁区虹许路951号4楼
Price: RMB198 (RM100) per pax, and eat until you die.

I want to eat until i die here, and i will be cremated here so they can sprinkle my ashes all over the food—Oliver Denton.

 

Went there with Oli, Ibytun (Ibby + Oytun. They are so inseparable like Siamese twins hence the new name), Onur and Boston.

I have to blog this entry flickr style because there are like, 43 pictures in total. I’ll let them speak on my behalf.

 

It is not called a stadium for no reason. Because. It is a freaking stadium. So imagine a stadiumful of food.

CRAB LEG this is my fav!!! So huge and juicy!!

null
Ebi tempura

null
Teppan Chicken. Make sure you try the beef also. Super good can die.

null
Hairy crab what turf.

null
It’s gross!! I tried to pull the black thing apart but seems like that’s the “hair”. -_-

And then Ibby thought me how to eat.

null
You will have to break the clams, then remove the top shell, then break the legs apart one by one, then further break the thingie into half, then basically you have nothing much left to eat. So you suck suck the juice out of it and it’s actually. quite. yummy. Hmm!

null
Assorted sushi of your choice. Okay let me rephrase that.

OMG SUSHI WHAT TURF YOU CAN TAKE WHATEVER YOU WANT SUSHI!I!I!I!I!I!!!!666

(From top left: Prawn, amaebi, tuna, second row: ikura, ika, grilled salmon with mayowhat turf yummy, third row: tobiko, salmon and more grilled salmon with mayo what turf because the sushi sifu said 2 pieces for sure not enough one!

null
Which is true, because we ordered again.

Top left, clock wise: Crab salad, yummy thing, ikura and uni (sea urchin).

Okay let me rephrase that.

UNI!!!!! Which stupid restaurant gives Uni!!!! WHAT TURF. T_T

null
U. Freaking. Ni. Eat until you die. T_T I wanna book a ticket back to Shanghai.

null
Some jelly dessert. Which kinda sucked. Well, whatever. because that’s about the only thing that sucked.

At this point, and on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being almost starved to death and 10 being gonna explode soon, we were all reaching the 9.999999.

 

BUT. THERE. IS. ALWAYS. ROOM. FOR. ALCO.

 

null
Sake. Drink until you die. We had like what, 15 bottles? I don’t think anyone remembers.

null
Umeshu omg yummy!

 

How turf do they make money? Seriously.

    I’ve actually been there in 2005. Apparently their buffet price does not account for American appetites:0). I went with two of my NYC friends and we ate them out of house and home. We ordered basically five 200RMB sushi boats, 6 drinks, 2 rounds of desserts. We ordered so much food that the waitress started taking 30 min before even visiting our table again. I kind of feel sorry for them that they had to meet us American wolves in Chinese disguises keke ^^.
