Kagarazaka Sushi Academy, Shinjuku

An all-you-can-eat (time-based) sushi house that is good. Better than other all-you-can-eat sushi places I went to.

I appreciate the attention to detail for the restaurant entrance experience.

Definitely want to come back here, when I feel like splurging.

The star of the show! Wagyu beef in some sort of lightly sweet sauce. I think this dish alone was ~¥5000 or so. I’m salivating just posting this; next time I’m here I think I’ll eat four of these by myself.

I struggled with balancing under- vs. over-cooking the meat. It’s pretty thin. Fortunately, it’s good either way.

Someday I’d like to be able to slice a lemon this thin.

A sweet ending; green tea ice cream.

Freshness Burger, Shibuya

Tried this fast food chain while in Tokyo, since a podcast I listened to mentioned it was good. I thought it was just ok. Better than Mos Burger.

Walking in, I saw this sign, and took it as a sign. (=

Onion rings sounded like a good idea. I liked these better than the burger.

I didn’t like the burger; seemed bland despite the bacon.

Oreryu Ramen, Shibuya

Stopped by a random ramen shop in Shibuya.

We placed an order for Oreryu Toku Tsukemen using the vending machine outside.

We told them we were sharing, so they came prepared! Love it.

20160418oreryuramen6

 

The ramen was good; nothing special. The second bowl made the broth cold, so sharing ended up being a bad idea lol.
