Busy being spoiled…
I know it’s a bit too late to say this, but… Happy New Year, everyone! How’s 2012 treating you? As the title says, Mr T and I have been very busy getting spoiled in Japan during the last 40 days, and we are now frantically trying to get back to the normal life here in Brighton. I will be sharing some photos from the trip in the next couple of posts, but first, please allow me to share my greatest memories of Japanese food!
Saltwater eel with rice. Sounds weird? They are absolutely gorgeous!
Salmon and salmon caviar hors d’oeuvre. Since it was during the Christmas season when we visited the restaurant, most of the food was arranged in ‘Christmassy’ style. The white sledge is made of carved Japanese radish; how sweet?!
Puffer fish Sashimi (already eaten partly by my mum)
Sashimi entree (tuna, scallops and squid)
Cute bento lunch meal. Inside the bag, there are…
these goodies, including chicken karaage, grilled fish, vegetables with miso sause etc.
And the lunch meal didn’t finish there; it came with individual shabu shabu!!! I was so stuffed!
Boiled swimming crabs, one for each!
My mum also prepared this big platter of sashimi :) Told you I was spoiled!
And last but not least, my favourite Japanese fast-food; rice burgers from Mos Burger (Japanese fast-food restaurant chain). These are Tsukune (chicken meatball), Kakiage (veg and seafood Tempura) and Yakiniku (BBQ beef). Yummy!
I cannot believe how much food we’ve eaten there, and also how much effort my mum and my mother-in-law put in order to stuff our bellies. Thank you so much again for both mums, and yes, we love you!!!
