The One about Shamrock by Abbot’s Choice in Roppongi

Located in the Minato Ward in Roppongi is one of the noteworthy pubs in the area. Shamrock by Abbot’s Choice is known for carrying numerous draught beers, hundreds of varieties of whisky and bottled beer. Best place to find during your stroll to or from Roppongi Hills.  If you happen to visit the place during happy hour (3 p.m. – 7 p.m.)., you’re really in for a treat.  Food and alcohol is priced affordably and […]

The One about Ikinari Steak Part 2

And I wanted to try the Kobe Steak at Hakushu in Shibuya and the Japanese Rib-Eye Steak at Ikinari Steak (which there are many restaurants in Japan, three in New York City and six more being planned). I briefly wrote about Ikinari Steak last October. Last year, I wrote about how the restaurant’s slogan was how […]

I decided to order the omurice with beef and suffice to say, it was delicious.  While […]

Such as the case of Nicolas House, a crepe location and restaurant that was owned by French chef Nicholas Charles in Harajuku and right near Omotesando. Unfortunately, the place closed in December 2016 but were known for creating desserts that were inspired by […]

The One about Making Sundried Tomatoes

One thing that I utilize a lot each month and it gets kind of pricey are purchases of sundried tomatoes. One of the coolest things I invested earlier this year is a really good dehydrator and while roma tomatoes are ideal for dehydrating due to having less water, other tomoato varieties are pretty much 98% water. But yesterday, I dehydrated a lot of cherry tomatoes from the evening to this early morning for nearly 11 […]
