This is like a semi private entry, a food log of all the nice things i have tried during my Japan trip. Because it’s pretty boring (i post it just for my own reference. It’s nice memories), and some of the pic not too great, and way too many pictures, so i’m breaking this entry into two parts. In case everyone gets tulan while waiting for the pix to load.
One day TK brought me this for breakfast and i was shocked. Yakisoba noodle in bun. Are you serious. But it was quite nice. Cuz their buns very nice one!
If you want you can click to read the rest of this post! (But if you are uber hungry or on a diet better not la. Cuz got like 60 pictures of fooooood.)
If the Mc in one country taste good, the rest of the food in that country probably taste good too.
Ebi burger. Their spicy chicken was super nice too!
This was in Aeon Mall. We waited quite sometime.
Ikura is the bomb.
JUST LOOK AT THE COLOR!!!
“Ponyo ponyo ponyo sakana no ko…”
HAHAHAHA. oops sorry.
Kai sushi. The texture was very very crunchy. Something i have never eaten before in Malaysia.
Super love the Chawan Mushi in Japan. It has like, 3 prawns inside, and lotsa other goodness, topped with ikura.
Inari Black Sesame sushi rice
We had other kinds of sushi too. Had his favorite Hamachi too i think.
Coco Ichiban Curry
Oh i love this. Taiwan got, Shanghai got. SG i dunno. Malaysia eelek.
Katsukare with horenso.
His one was mushroom sauce.
I like it because you can choose the amount of rice (200gm, 300gm, or moreee) and the level of spiciness (like nandos, but it’s weird because the spicier it is, the more expensive it is. And in order to order level 6 and above, it says that you have to have had tried level 5 first what turf.)
Katsu Curry Omelette rice
This one was i think tomato and cheese.
Sliced pork in Okonomiyaki sauce.
On a cold, cold day.
I forgot what this is called T_T. Apparently it is similar to Okonomiyaki but he hates Okonomiyaki so we tried this.
I ordered nama ebi.
Some Omureto thing.
Prolly the thing we ate most in Nara. And the boyfriend can sure eat! Always ramen with fried rice and fried chicken.
This one was the ramen shop with Masato. Buta Shio Ramen.
I didn’t quite like the Stamina Ramen though. Too garlicky.
Chahan very nice.
Wa look at the bowl. Damn nostalgic! Anyway this Chuka style fried rice was oiler, but also more wok hei. Very very nice!
French food. I couldn’t be arsed to read the Katagana properly. So i can’t come up with very accurate description.
Salmon and black caviar. The yellow thing is persimmon.
Ham and Kazunoko (Herring roe). The black thing is… i think is Gobo.
Fish with rosemary and Gobo and veg. The veg was so nice! And the fish was something i have never eaten before. It tasted a little strange, because the texture is almost like tofu. Super soft and… mashy. I couldn’t decide if it was good.
Chicken on Gobo. I can’t remember how it tasted like. So probably not too impressive.
I refuse to comment on this soup, because it spoilt the rest of the lunch. Not because it wasn’t nice. It was really good but.
Prawn in herbs and scallop.
The fish was really reeeeally good!
Venison. I didn’t fancy it but TK said it tasted fantastic.
The dessert was truly amazing. Mine was… i think, Gobo ice? wtf. I’ve had enough Gobo can? &!@^ But the choco mousse was…. argh i dunno how to describe. It’s, more than just good.
He had raspberry cake and Yuzu ice. The raspberry cake was probably like the best cake i’ve eaten. I dunno la. I sound like im exaggerating everything in this post. But i really dunno how else i can emphasize the goodness of them oredi. I wonder how KY did it. But he said he never uses words like, scrumptious or, tantalizing or even like, heavenly.
I think those adjectives have been soooooo tragically abused by every Tom Dick Harry they don’t even carry any significant meaning anymore. Whenever somebody uses it i just think it sounds very commercialized and fake. Like every other food review. Sien. They just sound the same as “good”. So might as well just say, it’s good.
This was the second time we went for Yakiniku. The best shop wasn’t open so we went for this one.
Omg beef sashimi is the best best best besttttt
Ochatsuke topped with Shake. Salmon was boney though.
Cake after dinner. I remember i stayed in the kitchen for the longest time. Stupid boyfriend.
Ringo ame stall. I had Ichigo in white choco.
Had this in a cafe in Aeon mall. SUper kao Macha ice. Green tea ice cream it was more bitter than sweet, topped with THICK THICCCCCK green tea syrup. But the syrup also not sweet. These Japanese people really damn healthy, i like!
Had this in the very pink shop in Aeon mall. Called Winter Lover or something. Xmas special. Strawberry ice with strawbies and bluebies with fresh cream in a wafer ball.
And it was like…
Ok up to this point i’m really running out of adjective for the bestness of these food. I mean, the most i can go is like bestestestestuntilmyhandgetstired but! Omg i don’t care la. It’s just best.
Screw Hagaan Daz.
On the 10th January. Yasuo offered to cook for us! So 11pm at night we went grocery shopping, with Yasuo and Ka-chan. Thank god for 24 hours supermarkets in Japan.
Hahaha i just think 3 guys and 1 girl grocery shopping very funny. =)
Wa he is damn pro can. His specialty is Italian so we were having some risotto and pasta.
God i was so impressed. Seriously. I dunno how he managed to cook this stuff with just rice and butter and some, i dunnowat. But it tasted bloody awesome. I wanted to lick the plate off.
Ka-chan was pleased with his friend.
Next up we had tomato + prawn pasta.
This is by far the bestestest homecook pasta i have tried. God i swear it was better than most of the atas Italian restaurants. I started to respect Yasuo a little more. lol.
Baked fish with whatever sauce he improvised and salad. A bit heavy on taste but would have tasted perfect with something plain. Like, mash. Perhaps.
My Favorite Bento Shop
Hokka Hokka Tei. They sell all sort of Bento sets. Only takeaway. You order, sit down and wait, or you can wait in the car. They cook it, then send it over. And it’s steamy hot.
God i swear can eat this everyday! I said this was the best and he felt a little insulted cuz he brought me to so many nice restaurants! lol. Cuz it’s really reaaaaly cheap! Like 380Yen you can get a damn awesome bento set.
We tapaoed before we rushed off to his basketball practice. But then last minute i saw Mentaiko topping, but that time already walked out the door and we were late! But i was like dying for mentaiko sauce. So he let me go back just to get my mentaiko. Which was like, 80yen. Yay.
I had Gobo rice with beef.
And some tempura. They had this macha shio (green tea salt powder) which was super nice with the tempura.
And then the next day, guess what we had?!?
Hokka Hokka Bento!!! YAY!
Special Seaweed set. Guess what topping i ordered?
And this was when we got back from Kobe. Was late and i was gonna leave soon. So guess what we had?
HOKKA HOKKA BENTO!!!
Of course, with MENTAIKO topping. This time he ordered two packets. I think he also got addicted to it. lol.
Sigh. Can someone teleport/takkyubin me to Japan right now i will give you my appendix.

They did Matcha ice-cream&Oreo McFlurry and it was amaaazing. Best thing everrrr. 日本へ帰りたい！
Wow.. nice post! all the food look damn nice la. I wanna go japan too!
If I’m not mistaken, there was once in thestar online article that mentioned salmon was pronounced sam-uhn with a silent ‘L’ (even in english) they even gave us a link to the web dictionary to hear the pronunciation. I guess thats probably why they call it samon…….hmmmm. You think?
OMG one of the most hungrifying posts EVER.
Yeah .. i love the hokka hokka bento TOO!!! hahaha ..
i oso dun mind to have it for everyday / every meal ..wahahahaha ..
they are really very tasty and delicious..^^

Hazel: OMG YOU ARE RIGHT OMG I FEEL SO EMBARRASSED NOW. SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON SAMON
The correct English pronunciation for Salmon is Sa-mon, but I don’t think that’s the reason it’s called Sa-mon in Japanese.
I think all Japanese read LOTR before one, so Salmon is Sa-mon instead of Saruman. Dowan to help the bad guy ma.
Ok now i am confused.
electronicfly: YA!!! They laughed at me. They say Sarumon means something else one. SO i ask is it the bad guy from LOTR and they were like YAYAYA!!!
*tummy growling* T_T haish.. I should not open this post.. I wish I can fly to Japan right now to eat all those super yummy looking food.

pattirmina: haha i just had my supper. i feel ok now
susie: I DID OK. LIKE 4 KG. geez.

Dinner? Most likely, I don’t take any asian food from the cafetaria. All the asian food are westernized. Thick and disgusting gravy on everything. Normally, we will go for burgers and fries or stackables.
I couldn’t stop swallowing my saliva back lor! arghh all look so yummy!! if I could i would all those in one night! haha
omg your post made me feel like i have to comment for the first time ever.

Ouh I had some Risotto some days ago too (cooked by myself) only with tomato. Italian stuff is soooo yummie <3
Ikura OWNS ALL!!!!
<3 Ikura with rice <3 Especially fresh ikura ^^
The only word I know of that dialect is せやね。ちょーかわいいと思う。
okonomiyaki meccha daisuki! kanimiso mo oishiii. kanimiso tabeta ka?
Haha. The ‘samon’ part was funny. But I managed to get it right from the katakana. 😛 In Japan, if you pronounce the katakana words anything less Japanese-y than they are, they don’t understand. Hurrr… I have a tough time with katakana all the time.
Holly JEBUS!!! This is FOOD PORN!! I must go to Japan one day …. and get fat afta it!! 😀
OMG! I wanted to go Japan so badly! ='(
When you are going back?
that okonomiyaki look-alike is actually monjayaki! 😀

Francesca: and i get to eat for free hor? DEAL.

How does Mentaiko taste like? :O
Replying to Cheesie’s January 28th, 2009 at 8:53 pm
For a couple of months already 🙂 I suddenly felt like commenting . Oh wow , your blog comments move so freakin fast . Mine doesn’t even have one each post !
You’re a nice person cheesie . Most pretty girls are just bitchy but you dont’ seem like them ! & you ate so many friggin nice food .
Will you married to Japan~?
Mmmmm…. this is dangerous stuff (Looks like I’ll be having a midnight snack)!! Food looks fantastic esp the home cooked risotto!
Mmm… Makes me wanna go Japan more. <3
ringo probably more japanese than malaysian with her better nihongo than bahasa.. 🙂

sigh.. here I am, CNY w’ no decent food… Fast food doesn’t count ok!! Ahh cheesie i hate u, make me feel so hungry and homesick and droooooooling over nothing now.. ) =
Ringo, please blog about the toilet soon !! I’m so so curious about it !!
And si = choi (shit = fortune), so it should be lucky to blog about it during CNY !!
Wow, lots of interesting-looking food. Don’t Japanese people get allergic rashes from all that seafood? Looks yummy alright. Unfortunately I’m not a big eater. I can’t finish most of my food. They always somehow end up tasting not as appetizing as at the beginning of the meal. But sometimes I can 🙂 But mum’s cooking is different! Can almost always finish those! 😀
haha. did not eat. just go to bed. but dreamed like so much.. *grr….*
anyway, it would be nice if u can share some of your tips.. how to be slim after piling on so many foods. do you do sports or its just the magic of kenko diet plum? lol.
unfortunately i dont do any kind of sports. :X
Yea just kenko.
Wow so much food. So much fun! The curry stuff looks nice! Makes me wanne go Japan!!
Luckily I edi eat !! 😀
Is the food there expensive?? and and can share the homecook recipe? *LOL*
that one have to ask yasuo. lol
Oh damn…suddenly feel hungry wooo
The monja are sooo delicious and the bentos too…
I wish I can go to Japan soon
