Lunch

January 7, 2010

Little unknown seafood shack near the office. Was great! Co-worker suggested the menu, and other co-worker found the place. Great tag team work.

久しぶりの海鮮丼。お昼に850円のちょっとした贅沢。旨かった!

Minamiazabu Hajime 南麻布 元(はじめ)

January 7, 2010

Last night was tired and didn’t feel like cooking at home, so there is this quaint little restaurant bar looking kinda place across the street thats been on my radar for some time. So we decided to go check it out. Turns it it has only one table, and the rest of the seats are counter seats. The menu is full of appetizers and small dishes mostly with fresh seafood. I think I’m gonna grow used to this place. Seems casual enough to hop in anytime, and….. its 5 seconds walking distance from home! What more can I ask for.

昨夜家で作るのがめんどうだったので、ずーっと気になってた家の前にあるお店に行くことにしました。元と書いて「はじめ」って読むらしい。居酒屋?かっぽう?ってな感じのお店。メニューは黒板にかかれてて、多分毎日アップデートされてる。僕の好みのつまみばーっかり!お刺身から炒め物、揚げ物、しめのご飯なり。で、で、で、徒歩5秒!これからもお世話になりそうです。

Karaoke

December 24, 2009

Went out with Toshi and Chie the other night. We had dinner at some cheezy Yakinuku (Korean BBQ) place where the service was aweful. I guess the food was ok, but certainly not worth the bad service. Why did we end up going there again?

Afterwards to a nearby Karaoke, and I can’t remember how I got home. The usual story

Dinner at Nishi Azabu Furuken 西麻布 ふるけん

December 22, 2009

Had dinner at Nishi Azabu Furuken last night. The place was awesome. All the portions are tapas size so you can try a large variety of items. And each one is tasty! If you are in the area I highly recommend it.
