Review: Sushi Kanesaka (Ginza Honten)

It had always been a dream of mine to have an omakase set meal in one of Tokyo’s vaunted sushi temples, but unfortunately, things were a lot more difficult than I expected. You see, booking a restaurant in Tokyo is a tricky ordeal, especially if you want to get into one of the more prestigious restaurants in…

Review – Tempura Tsunahachi (Shinjuku Honten)

The chef plucked a perky, squirming Kuruma Ebi (Japanese Imperial Prawn) from a large fish tank and held it in my direction. After a quick nod by yours truly, he tore off the head, and with the flick of a wrist, stripped the crustacean of its shell and dunked it in a batter mix. Less than…

Review: Wong Eats Tokyo (Days 7 – 10)

I am sure you all have heard the phrase “all good things must come to an end.” Well, after ten blissful days in the beautiful city of Tokyo (Check out Wong Eats Tokyo Part 1 and 2 while you’re at it), I have finally returned back to Hong Kong with a belly full of great sushi and…

Review: Wong Eats Tokyo (Days 3 – 6)

It’s been a while, so here is another update on Wong Eats Tokyo (click here to see part one of my recap). I still am eating extremely well in the greatest food city in the world, and have tried many new things that I cannot wait to share with you all about. As per usual, this…

Three days ago, I wrote a prequel to Wong Eats Tokyo, where I stressed that I would be diligently updating this blog so that I can best provide you readers with an up to date account of all the things I have eaten in the greatest gastronomical city in the world. Unfortunately, that has not…

Restaurant Review: Rhoda

It was just this week that I was discussing about the power of names with a friend of mine. You see, I believe that each individual name ultimately symbolises who we are and what we become; after all, we as humans are defined by our names. This applies to restaurants too, where the name of…

Review: Yat Lok Roast Goose

During lunch – more precisely – before lunch, I was being instructed by a drill sergeant of a woman. She was in my ear, barking: “Sit down, hurry up! You’re blocking the way.” Ah lunch hours in Central, the time when the city truly comes alive. It is only during this time that you truly…

Review: Tippling Club (Singapore)

I strongly believe that Masterchef: The Professionals is the best culinary based competition show in the world – even though I believe Netflix’s The Mind of a Chef reigns universally supreme. Partly, this is due to the fact that rather than Gordon Ramsay, the show is hosted by esteemed chefs who have not yet sold their souls for commercial…
