Amazing buffet-style restaurant for crab.

 Eating as much as crabs you want in a restaurant would be fun, if it were not a luxury, expensive treat. Especially in Japan, people often don't afford to have it simply because it's too expensive. One evening, however, a friend of mine offered me to come to a buffet style restaurant featuring for crab. Well, There's no reason to hesitate, so I decided to join it :)

 Walking into a slightly tiny hotel near a subway station, I found a party-style hall down there. It might be used primary for weddings or some cooperation-related-parties, I assumed. But this time, they had a dozen of round tables and a good number of plates topped with meals that are lined up in the corner. Amazingly enough, drinks were also available for free! Oh, it's no way missing this opportunity! :)

 Tempra, pretty nice quality of steaks, Japanese dishes and more. Hmmm...I was too astonished to get it all!

 Of course, I began with a crab leg. One by one, sometimes dipped with unique sweet sour sauce kani-su (蟹酢), while mostly without taking anything but crab itself so to taste it deeply. 
 With enormous amount of crab legs, I soon ceased to count how many of them I had already had. As the night goes on and other tables got so crowed, it convinced me once again that I love food, not only cooking myself, but also having it ;)


wandering places.

sometimes....I feel desperately in need of going out to get some air, somewhere unusual.


Two different packed meals "Bento" with colourful seasonal cuisine :)

 If you're in hurry and don't have much time to eat at a restaurant, having boxed meal "Bento (弁当)"  is the best way to go. Not only yummy, but also a great way to have many traditional Japanese foods at one time: grilled fish like salmon, seasonal vegetable are typical ones for it. So, one extremely busy day, I decided to take a bento for lunch :)

 The contents of three different types of tasted rice never made me tired of eating! They steamed rice with clam, fish and...well, I forgot the last one XD Also, sweet potato covered with black sesame gave me a short break after eating the rest of food, as if it was a cake served after dinner.

 The thing was, I was still hungry at that point. So why don't I take one more Bento?

Here it is, the package itself looks...how can I say? hmm....complex? ;)  Anyway, let's open up.

 It was another gorgeous one, however, this one tasted like sushi. Sour taste rice beneath colourful food, I fully enjoyed my lunchtime :)
