I visited to the Yabaton Honten (Main store) during a recent visit to Nagoya to eat some misokatsu. Yabaton came highly recommended by Nagoya native.
Nagoya is famous for its red miso which has a very distinct taste. Red miso is hard to describe, it’s much more potent then the stuff you would find in generic miso soup and some people really can stand the taste.
Ikkaku chicken is legendary on the island of Shikoku. Personally, if I am not eating udon while visiting Kagawa Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, I am probably eating chicken at Ikkaku. The Dokigawa (Doki river) branch is the biggest Ikkaku restaurant I have visited so far and it’s busy.
The Tsurajima area of Kurashiki is famous for renkon and huge factories. Pain Cafe Atelier is a small bakery just off the Mizutama Bridge Line. It’s also the only restaurant within a walking distance from my house.
Dantotsu ramen moved two doors down the same street and the good taste followed along. Dantotsu is my guilty pleasure and I was glad to see it in a brand new location. This is my second review, you can read the original here.
Do you remember Julia Roberts eating delicious pizza in the Eat Pray Love movie? In the movie, she is visiting Naples and she eats pizza from L’Antica Pizzaria da Michele until she can’t fit into her jeans. Surprisingly, you can eat the same pizza (minus Julia Roberts) near Ebisu station in Tokyo.
I’ve been in Okayama for 10 years and I am still waiting for a good soul to open a banh mi shop. On my last trip to Tokyo, the Ebisu Banh Mi Bakery just happened to be located right next door to my hotel is Ebisu, so I could simply not resist.
It’s our second visit to Seaside Uwakai うわかい in Ehime and I could not be more delighted to go back. This little family pension is located on the seaside between Uwajima and Yawatahama in Ehime Prefecture. To access the pension, you will need to drive on the extremely narrow and windy route 378. If you are a nervous driver or you are doubting your driving skills, you might want to skip this one.
