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…

It exists solely in the realms of one’s imagination and dreams. But I do believe that there are dining experiences, near-perfect meals I call them, that inches…

Review: Sang Kee Congee Restaurant

For me, adolescence tastes like medium-rare steak, the flavours of grilled fats, protein, salt and blood mingled into one perfect mouthful. It also tastes like salmon sashimi, fatty and succulent.
