Tsukemen @ Tsujita LA Artisan NoodleTsukemen @ Tsujita LA Artisan Noodle I’m about to go to sleep (2:00 AM) when I come across what I consider is the best non-photoshopped photo i’ve ever taken of pork… an image so titillating, that I would have creamed in my pants if I were a guy.  Therefore, I must post this now. Nothing can excite me more than an […]

Barbecue Pork (Korean) @ Palsaik Samgyupsal Korean BBQBarbecue Pork (Korean) @ Palsaik Samgyupsal Korean... (I’ll bring my proper camera next time) My tummy is aching just thinking about the yommy strips of marinated pork belly–8 different types of marinades to be exact!  I don’t know if it’s an Asian thing, but the number 8 sure is lucky in my belly.  Flavours include: wine, original, ginseng, garlic, herb, curry, miso […]

Fried Chicken @ Honey's KettleFried Chicken @ Honey's Kettle Thus far, best soul food I’ve had in L.A.  This homestyle chicken originated in Compton, then replicated itself in Culver City. Two piece chicken combo – one thigh and one breast (to stroke my conscience).  Not to worry, the breast is super juicy (any joke here would be too easy).  And I’m a biscuit home […]

Sukiyaki or Shabu-Shabu/Tokyo @ ZakuroSukiyaki or Shabu-Shabu/Tokyo @ Zakuro Amazing AMAZING sukiyaki AND shabu shabu.  This place is absolutely worth every cent. Order: wagyu beef set for sukiyaki and/or shabu-shabu (depending on your mood. Hopefully you have 4 people or more in your group so you can try both methods of cooking.  Both are sick. Note: OK, you spend at least $200/person for wagyu […]

Beef Bowl @ YoshinoyaBeef Bowl @ Yoshinoya Don’t you laugh or hesitate for one second.  Yoshinoya in the U.S. is not Yoshinoya in Japan.  They should really rebrand the one in the U.S. as something lesser because it does not do the original restaurant justice..not one iota.  If you want juicy beef, perfectly cooked juicy rice, and clean ginger & red seasoning, […]

Are you in Roppongi and in need of an afternoon shaved ice made with real green tea?  This is the sickest shaved ice I’ve ever had.  Real ingredients, extreme delicacy, awesome. Order:  green tea shaved ice Note: I’m pretty sure this is the correct restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Roppongi hills mall. Basically, enter the […]

I know what you’re thinking, “why go all the way to Tokyo to have Korean barebecue?!”  Well, because the Japanese always do everything better.  Amazing wagyu beef bbq. They’re also famous for the salad dressing on the salad.  I think you can buy the dressing, if so, bring me some too. Order: wagyu marinated beef […]

  I went to two sukiyaki joints in Tokyo and i love them both.  I’m not sure if Imahan has shabu-shabu as well, but the other one I went to had both.  Though, I can’t figure out the other name of the restaurant for the life of me.   Anyway, you’ll never have sukiyaki like this […]

I was hesitant to put this on the website for one reason–I’m not sure whether I crave this ramen for a sadistic purpose or because I really think it’s so delicious.  I think its both.  However, the second time I went here, I vowed I’d never return after feeling like I burned a hole through […]

  You’ve never had udon until you come here. This is certainly the best place in Tokyo I promise you. Order: I think there are only three udon options – curry (they’re most popular for this one but i’m not big on curry), mushroom dipping soup udon (i tried all of them and this was […]
