Tsurutontan

Recommended by a local friend, went to try this classy Udon restaurant in Roppongi. The interior is spacious and relaxing, even when it’s bursting with customers. I never felt rushed both times I visited and the atmosphere was really great to just enjoy the food and chat with friends. On our first visit, I decided […]

Shin Udon

Read about this place online because I love udon/soba and wanted to find someplace that came highly recommended to try. It was a bit hard to find the exact place but I followed the directions (and you can also check the map below) and found it without much trouble. It helps that there was a […]

Ajinoya

I found this place online and didn’t realize until we reached the door that it was a Michelin-starred restaurant. Made sense given the long wait we had to go through even though we were already there just 30min after opening time. They are quite used to this and have a pretty good system in place […]

Saw a video about this restaurant on Facebook and thought it would be interesting enough to give it a try. You can see a short clip of us entering the restaurant here.

Apparently translating to “The Best of Thai Boat Noodles”, this restaurant with their orange-shirt-clad servers is the most famous boat noodle restaurant in Bangkok. Recommended to me by my sister-in-law, I went with a friend to check it out. As you can see above, the menu is short and simple. For those unfamiliar, boat noodles […]

Grimaldi’s

Usually visited by older patrons, I have only actually dined at Grimaldi’s once in the many years I’ve been in Adelaide. Grimaldi’s is my must-have stop for it’s “Legendary Tiramisu” – aptly named on it’s menu. The food was still delicious and the portions were just right. I had the salmon (below) and it was […]

Hanabishi

Hanabishi is where I go to satisfy my salmon cravings. The first time I went there was an interesting experience as it is located in the business area so all the other customers were office workers and looked and me and my friend oddly as it was probably unusual to see a student there. My […]
