Tani

Japanese, Korean
April 6, 2016 SAVORY FOOD: Their fried chicken is top notch and is this restaurant’s shining specialty. A great Korean bar to eat savory dishes and grab some drinks. All of their savory dishes are pretty large and are much better for sharing family style with your table. The chicken is juicy with extremely crispy breading – perfect. […] {More...}

Hakata Ikkousha

Japanese
January 9, 2016 Kimchi: We’ve visited Hakata twice now and both visits have been delightful! Martini: This is definitely my go-to ramen place now. Kimchi: The karaage ($7)  is perfect! The outside is super crispy and the inside for the most part is super juicy. Martini: If you’re starving and need that little side-dish to compliment your meal, […] {More...}

Temakira

Sushi
July 5, 2015 Pretty good for a fast food type place! For now I would actually give this place 3.5 stars but assuming I will get the chance to try more of their food and enjoy it, my rating would topple over into 4 stars. It’s very clean inside and the decor is rather pleasing. The handrolls are […] {More...}

Samurai Burrito

Sushi
January 27, 2015 Kimchi: I have gone here enough times to finally say I really dig this place. It looks pretty humble when you first walk in, but the food is good. I’m a fan of “build your own” places and I usually can’t say no so sushi. The combination of the seaweed, sushi rice, raw fish, crunchy […] {More...}

Dami Sushi & Izakaya

Japanese, Korean
November 30, 2014 Kimchi: We had the pleasure of being invited to Dami Sushi & Izakaya’s complimentary grand opening media tasting. I was very excited for the event, and it did not disappoint! Thank you Edmond and Dami for kindly inviting us! It was a fantastic experience and I’m very grateful I was able to experience all of […] {More...}

Curry House

Japanese
November 30, 2014 Kimchi: I’ve grown accustomed to Mitsuwa’s katsu curry plates from Miyabi-Tei, which are under $8 dollars, and taste really fantastic. The first time I had Curry House was maybe 6 years ago, and I was not impressed. However, that was before I became a foodie, haha! This time when we went to Curry House, I […] {More...}

Cooking: Onigiri

Cooking, Japanese
August 17, 2013 I always wanted to make onigiri and decided to make them the day before a little roadtrip/museum day with my friend. It was harder than I thought to make…Putting in the filling and then shaping the rice ball into triangular shapes was a bit challenging (you can tell that some of the onigiri are cracked/filling […] {More...}

Cream Pan

Japanese
June 26, 2013 Kimchi: We were disappointed with the onigiri (I’ve never had a legit one before) because we were expecting it to have a filling. Instead, it had flaked salmon bits mixed all over in the rice and no filling. It would have tasted great with a spicy mayo & salmon filling. Kimchi: The sandwiches were premade […] {More...}

Tommy’s Sushi

Japanese, Sushi
May 7, 2013 Kimchi: Apparently Tommy’s Sushi is known for the poki bowl. I’ve been dying to try this place for a while now because I’m a huge fan of poki bowls. I love mixed fish in sauce over a bed of sushi rice (I hate it when restaurants use just plain rice rather than sushi rice). Tommy’s […] {More...}

Ramen Yamadaya

Japanese
February 9, 2013 Kimchi: We went to Ramen Yamadaya once, and the experience was rather ironic compared to our recent visit. Our first visit I was left with more to be desired. “It was good but I don’t know if I would want to come again.” But after a while of reading reviews for this place, my appetite […] {More...}
