Ippudo – London

How to start this one? I was craving for some ramen… WHAT on EARTH were they doing?!?!?!?!   First of all, the original Hakata concept was simplicity and rustic feeling. So WHY on earth did they glam up and botox the London branch? That’s right, I felt that they’ve BOTOX the place.

Pain Daigo – Minamiaso, Japan

Easy to over look this little patch of delightful things. French – Japanese fusion artisan bread store in a middle of no where. Lucky for me, I found it LOL. Honestly did not expect to find bread in a clearly rice dominate farm area. It was a good break to non-stop rice dishes. This store only used local Kumamoto flour 😀 support local farms.

Flamed up ramen – Sakaiminato, Japan

This started off as a travel blunder… we arrived off peak and when the whole avenue (feature of the town) was closed. It was my fault, we finished with Conan museum early and I thought we could squeeze it in. So typical of me. For Japan, I really do tend to arrive first and think later. Most of the time it works like a charm. There’s so much information pamphlet locally that it has never been necessary.
