Eat Tokyo Aug 2013

So i was back in Japan for a very short 3 days! Not even enough to warm Japanese toilet seats wtf. Eh wait. They are already warm.

It was also the first time i traveled to Japan without the danna. It was such a strange feeling. I was very very happy to be back, and when i left the airport i felt sad as usual, but more than sad i also felt super happy to be back cuz i miss him so much wtf. It was all very confusing lol.

I had to play an amateur tour guide for the work team because i was the only one who can speak Japanese. And now i think maybe i can just quit blogging and show people around Tokyo for a living, cuz turned out it was such and easy job. Everybody seemed to enjoy the food of a random restaurant i picked! It’s most of the time hit-and-hit lol.

We had:

Randomly picked an Izakaya around our hotel.

1. Soft bone pork curry with egg

2. Yakisoba

3. Yakitori, the green thing is called Shishitou, it’s a kind of Japanese green pepper and I LOVE IT

4. Tsukune dipped in egg yolk

 

A random ramen shop in Shibuya. Everybody loooooooves this! Meat was so soft it melts in your mouth and the soup is the kao-est i’ve had so far.

 

Went to another Izakaya chain store called Hokkaido!

Only available in summer, Hokkaido white corn!

(Blogged about it last year HERE.)

 

Hokkaido Melon.

 

Another random cafe. We were so tired walking so we just walked into the nearest cafe. It’s a family restaurant called Jonathan’s.

The danna and i normally avoid family restaurant at all cost, because they are very averagely very average at average. It’s like fast food la, they cannot be bad, but you know that they are unlikely crazy yummy either. We’d rather hipsterly explore individual small cafes and restaurants.

But but but!!!

This Jonathan’s is now running Foie Gras promotion omgggggg. (It even has a DOUBLE FOIE GRAS STEAK) A hamburg topped with seared foie gras at 990 yen (about RM30+)!!!

And i was thinking the quality must be not so good la, but the foie gras tasted just like those RM80 foie gras T___T. I hope they still have this when i go back next!!!!!!!

 

Muscat jelly dessert at Jonathan’s also.

 

Kuro Kuma shaved ice

 

With Yuria! At Shinjuku LUMINE EST, as she just opened a new GYDA shop there!!

 

.

Also!

I know that all of you have many questions regarding Japan, and i received emails every day asking me where to do what. Honestly it’s a little difficult for me to reply one by one answering so many questions. My apology if you feel angry why this Cheesie never reply email wtf.

So if you have any now, you can leave a comment in this post, or i’ll compile them and answer in the next post or something, so other people who wants to know can read too. Sharing is caring!!!

😀

Shoot la.

    Hello Cheesie! You’re my favorite blogger and I’m always happy when reading your blog posts about Tokyo, because I also looove Tokyo so much! I will start studying Japanese language in Tokyo next month. Therefore, I’ll have to find a hair salon to go to when I’m living in Tokyo. So, can you recommend nice hair salons in Tokyo? and I’m also still not sure about the steps and manners we should follow in Japanese hair salons. Do we need to tip the hair stylist and other things like that? Thank you Cheesie! I’ll be so happy if you can answer my question, or maybe you can write a blog post about it! I think a lot of girls with the same problems as me would appreciate it. ^^

    Hi Cheese. Can you please give some advice on where to find breakfast in Japan? What and where do people usually eat when they want to have breakfast when they are out? We found yummy bakeries but no place to sit down to eat. From what I understand, eating in public isn’t common but then where do I eat? Thanks!

  21. Alyssa says:

    Hi Cheesie! I have been a silent follower of your blog for ages now… hehe… I will be going to Japan with my brother this December, to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. It would our very first trip to Japan which has always been our dream to visit, so it would be very extremely helpful if you could share with us some economical tips on where to eat, significant places we have to visit and any other tips you think will be useful for us. Thank you so very very much! =)

  22. Tracy says:

    Hey Cheesie!nSo I’m going to Tokyo for the first time in November and I’m not really sure of what to do. Could you give some recommendations of suburbs to visit, favourite places to eat, hotels to stay at, shops to visit, LOL like everything. It would be cool if you could make a mini-trip guide 😉

  23. haz says:

    Hi Cheesie!nnI really enjoy reading your blog posts. (: Currently I am studying Japanese and I was wondering how did you manage to improve your Japanese? Besides talking to your friends/husband/then bf in Japanese. Where there any good ways that helped to improve your japanese when you were learning it in the past in Malaysia? Thanks! 🙂

    Can you do some kind of guide on riding the trains in Japan? I dont know if this is a silly question or what. But it really confuses me with all the lines and things they have there. Oh and also with the tickets and things as well maybe?

  25. eiko-chan says:

    Hi Cheesie, it would be great if you can share with us some basic etiquette or manners we tourists can follow when in Japan. Like what we can or cannot do… when in restaurants, trains, while shopping etc. nnThe Japanese are one of the most polite people in the world. They probably won’t tell you if you were doing something which is considered rude in Japan, but is normal in other countries. Although we are tourists, i always believe we should adapt to the local culture so we do not offend the locals, instead of the other way round. =)

    confession time (for absolutely no reason, lol wtf): i never actually liked reading your blog in the past (sorry ah) but since you got married and write more regarding japan / japanese food (FOOOOOD!!) i realise i’m really starting to like cheeserland now. i guess it’s because i’ve always loved japan (for their food & fashion) but have never personally been and reading your blog is just getting educated about all things japan/ese so i’m really very grateful :’Dnnplease never stop spreading japan/ese love! more power to you, ringo <3
