Minako – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Minako – review | | Category: Japanese, Reviews | Tags : , ,

I saw that Minako had gotten very good reviews on The Fork and for a while there, they had 30% discount off the food so it was a no-brainer to eat there. The first time I ate there, I had the mixed sashimi. This was very fresh and the fish... more

Blue Light Yokohama ramen – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Blue Light Yokohama ramen – review | | Category: Japanese, Reviews | Tags : ,

I’ve been looking for an authentic ramen joint ever since I came back from Japan. Ki-Mama used to be good but not anymore, and Ai Ramen was the pits! Adam och Albin was worse than the pits! So it was with a bit of trepidation and apprehension that I dined... more

I read that 35 steps bistro in Shibuya is one of the top izakayas in this part of town and I concur. Totally happening. We were very excited when we found this thru Google and rushed out of our hotel room to get there. We found 35 Steps by the lights in... more

Miroku in Akasaka is a happening standing room izakaya. We were here twice and had a lot of fun each time. The menu is mostly offal with a few grilled meat skewers. As hubby isn’t an innards person, I got to enjoy the food all by myself! There are several round... more

Tsuta ramen – review

I’ve been looking forward to slurping noodles at this one Michelin star ramen joint but alas, it was over-rated. We woke up early on a Saturday morning to get there at 8 o’clock in order to get tickets for lunch. You have to put down a deposit of 1000 yens to get a... more

My friend and I were here on a Tuesday night and it was packed. The resto is really small, only 14 seats! I have to say say that this was the best meal I’ve ever had in Sweden! We lucked out and had seats at the bar so we could... more

Sushi Yama revisited – review 2

By: Phuong | 2 Comments | | Category: Japanese | Tags :

I raved about Sushi Yama in spite of the fact that it’s a sushi chain. I was here last Friday and the quality has gone down drastically! Gone is the generous bites of sashimi. The fish that I had was less fresh as well. They also forgot my dollop of... more

Sushi Yama – review

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Sushi Yama – review | | Category: Japanese, Reviews | Tags : ,

This is a sushi chain but I was suitably impressed when I ate here 2 weeks ago. There are 3 locations in Stockholm alone and also all over Sweden, 16 in total. A colleague ate here and raved about it so I had to try it out as well. A... more

T-Jarlen has a good deal on tuna so we totally pigged out on tuna sashimi for lunch today! I used 2/3 of the tuna for the sashimi and the rest for tuna tartare with gojuchang. It was fantastic! I’ll try to post a recipe for that asap but in the... more
