Osaka: #1.3

We were supposed to meet our dad’s friend for dinner. He used to be a well known trader in Japan, he was formally the youngest trader in Japan last time, to have have to pay a substantial amount of income tax. He was so influential that housewives all follows the style he trades. His friendship with my parents also started in Singapore, he came over to trade as well in the past, and got to know my parents in the pit.

so Osaka, being his home now, he brought us to a toufu dinner, and since he knew what happened to my dad, he opted for a healthier alternative just specially catered to dad’s health. We were at first quite “wrinkle nose” and in that position that you cannot refuse the person since he already made a reservation to this restaurant months before our arrival, nonetheless, I must say, for a toufu themed dinner, we were all blown away and ended up enjoying the whole course!

This place is quite exclusive. They only take reservations! Heard this place is very popular with the OLs! Will so totally come back here if i ever visit Osaka!

Osaka: #1.2

We went exploring and saw Takashimaya .. so we headed down to the food basement. I must say this is like a Chestnut pre-starter. My brother is very determined in this trip, to try out all the different variations of chestnut cakes that he can ever lay his hands on.

Going into this food basement, I felt like I died and went to sweets heaven. Because most of the shops don’t allow me to take pictures, I couldn’t really take much .. But Oh my goodness looking at all the cakes galore! Makes me wished I can camp out here and stay here instead!

Osaka : #1.1

We arrived in Osaka for the first time 🙂 SO .. being our usual selves, we scoured near the hotel ( We stayed in Hotel Miyako) and searched around for food to eat .

Since we are quite a ramen family, so we walked in one called Tenkaippin(天下一品)My mum was intrigued and decided maybe the name will deliver what it promises – worlds no.# 1best

I think the broth was a little too eggish for our taste. It felt like eating a raw egg with each sip of the soup. The noodles was something different – it felt like Chinese noodles.. but over all, i don’t think we like this place very much!
