Japanese Tempura Rice Bowl

One of my favorite Japanese foods is Tempura. The other day, we dined out in an economic Japanese Family Restaurant called Tonden. Since I want to eat a healthy meal, I ordered Tendon, or Japanese Tempura Rice Bowl Meal set. The meal set consists of Miso Soup, Chawanmushi (茶碗蒸し), Oshinko ((pickled Chinese cabbage), Tofu, and Tempura in a rice bowl. Tendon’s Ten means Tempura’s Tem (ten). Don is a shortcut of Donburi, which means a bowl. As such, in Japanese there are some bowl dish. OISHIKATTA! Delicious and healthy meal.

Last week, we had... ..a full course of TONKATSU meal at my favorite Tonkatsu Restaurant in town —- the Hamakatsu . As usual, it came with an amazing miso soup, shredded cabbage, oshinko, and sesame seeds for the sauce, dressings, and oolong tea. Goma-suri (sesame seed grinder) to make the tonkatsu sauce tastier :) mouthgasm! This time I ordered a different tonkatsu set, which are pork cutlets (rosu and hi-re, i don’t the term in english lol) and ebi fry (deep fried shrimp). I even asked for another extra rice in a bowl. We also ordered a separate meal set from the kids’ menu for our little princess.. Katsudon Kid’s dinner set :) What I love about family restaurants here in Japan is their freebies for the kids.. Anzu chose the Lilo Stitch coloring set from this basket. What an amazing dinner! To

Fresh Oyster

I've never eaten raw oyster anywhere else other than here in Japan. It's big, yummy and I'm sure it's clean and fresh, as in fresh... I never had raw oysters before because I was scared to try them.

I suddenly bought a new camera a week ago because my little girl broke my old camera's lens. But it's ok.. It was fault anyway. And I was actually planning to buy a new one this month.

I love not only because of its stylish look, but also it has 2 pockets.
