The French Brasserie

After a very ‘unusual’ craving for escargots, I found this restaurant online and managed to rope my cousin into trying it out with me – as well as satisfying my very specific craving. The main dish I was looking forward to – the escargots – were divine. The sauce was amazing and whilst my cousin […]

Masons of Bendigo

While visiting my sister’s placement in Bendigo, she booked us a dinner at Masons, citing that the food was good and as close to fine dining Bendigo offered. The restaurant was spacious and the layout allowed quite a number of tables without feeling like customers were rubbing elbows with one another. Masons on Bendigo’s menu […]

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 […]

Something I’ve been meaning to try for awhile but never had the chance to until recently were these fluffy cheesecakes that are quite famous especially on social media. The cakes are made fresh every day and if you get there early you definitely know they’re fresh and still hot. If you plan on buying a […]

Tokyo Snake Centre

Managed to convince a friend to come with me to this snake cafe and despite the fact they initially said they didn’t like snakes, my friend said that they actually enjoyed the experience quite a bit. He was way too jumpy whenever a snake moved though and almost dropped one which would not have been […]

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 […]

Kawaii Monster Cafe

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. The music was a little loud at times but the staff were lively, friendly and very accommodating; especially given most of their clientele […]

Mister Sunshine’s

Happened to look this place up as I was visiting the IceArena nearby. Ratings were good and ambience looked super homey. They even had blankets stored in a shelf although I didn’t see anyone using them (then again, I was seated indoors both times I visited). On the left was the Sauteed Field Mushrooms and […]
