Tokyo: #5.2

My brother thought he shouldn’t just end the night as such .. So he told me to follow him to hop around the different sake lounges within the hotel to check out the ambience and try the different types of special cocktails.
we went up to the 45th floor of this Lounge within the hotel, M bar

Spectacular View of tokyo

Special Occasion Drink for the night

I (heart) Takashimaya Japan

Following that, he also decided that we should experience the Japan Culture, through heading into a yakitori place and drinking beer and eating yakitori. In the environment where all the OLs and Salarymen were bitching in Japanese about their work, smoking like a chimney, we found this place near our hotel that is exactly as i described it to be.

appetizer

BEST ODEN EVER!!!! Egg, Fishcake, Daikon, special toufu puff, konyaku jelly

Cheers to Christmas!

And of course, what we came here for : Yakitori.  Super shioks except the quails eggs were super saltish

But we found this next amazing dish while trying very hard in our broken japanese and english to ask the waiter to reccomend something special and different for us. .. and to our amazement, we had this

At a glance, it just looks like an ordinary piece of chicken cutlet . But according to the waiter, he explained in his broken english and simple Japanese that this chicken cutlet,  is first coated with egg yolk, pre-fried, then battered in flour and fried again – Super awesome to the max!

I forgot to take the name card of this place, but its a sure touchdown!!! 🙂

 

Tokyo #5.1

We headed towards Tokyo, although leaving a little fuller, rounder and with a heavier heart and body weight! I dont dare to think how much weight I have put on after all these incessant eating. So we took the train, and I thought to make my Japan experience a little more authentic, I bought myself an Onigiri to eat on the trip to Tokyo.

Mentai Onigiri 🙂

MENTAIII

After we arrived in Tokyo, we checked into our hotel, at Shinjuku, and went to find Ramen.  We were introduced this Ramen map that the hotel had conveniently mapped out with its surrounding areas (Aren’t the Japanese meticulous or what?)  and we of course asked for their personal rankings in which they deemed were the best before making the trip. So we headed to Santouka, I believe we also do have a branch in Singapore.

Shoyu Ramen

Charsiew Rice = good stuff

Well i think the only complaint was that the  eggs kinda dont really pass the normal molten standard.
