Salmon Samurai

Lunchtime takeout, decided to try the seared salmon sashimi with spicy cod roe mentaiko with yuzu-ume brown rice. 

It tasted pretty heavenly, i ate everything with the wasabi you see in the rice and another two packets of wasabi that was provided on the side. A nice and light meal. 

They have high quality miso soup as well, with large chunks of salmon, shrooms, carrots and daikon.😊

I can’t get enough of this

 

Appearance wise…. It doesn’t look like much, but on my word its really good. I can’t really describe properly with words what this actually tastes like. I wonder if I can find it in Singapore too? Probably not. So far, I’ve only ever came across the  “Tokyo banana” sponge cake at this little store in Basement 4 of Ion Orchard Shopping Centre. I think I’ll have to go check out that store again one of these days. 🙂

Dad and his quirks

I attended what my dad funnily called ‘The melon cutting ceremony’ yesterday. I’ve been waiting eagerly to taste one of the most expensive melons in the world! (Maybe. Haha. ) In Singapore, this kind of  melon was actually being sold for a whopping SGD125. Everybody was waiting for it to ripen!  After eating it, my conclusion is that… it was sweet and extremely juicy, but, it wasn’t really really sweet as I’ve seen most people describe it as. Thing is, the ones Dad ate in Hokkaido was much better. Maybe this particular one is an aberration. =P

Good morning!

It just started raining as I am typing this post. How quickly the weather changes, one moment hot the next cold and rather dreary. I hope that its just a passing shower!

Dad is going to Japan in the coming week, how I wish I could go too. :p I wonder if customs will allow him to bring some yubari melon back. Yubari melon is famously expensive and can sell for pretty ridiculously high prices. I am most curious to know what it would taste like to warrant such a hefty price tag!

Some breakfast photos!
