On the way to Jojoen previously, I noticed meat. It was a teppanyaki place and I wanted to come back to try it. So we did.

Fortunately, we asked what was good. They recommended this sort of seafood pancake that had some roe. It was tasty!

Some veggies, to offset all my meat intake.

And the meat! It was good. I liked it and would eat here again if I stopped by Skytree.

The rice was good because of its chewy¬†texture; I don’t think people know how to make rice like this in the states.

Pepper Lunch, Ueno

It is interesting to me to try out the original Japanese version of some restaurants available in the US.

I don’t think the US version does this. (=

This was the sauce I liked. Not sure what it is.

Adding the sauce to the dish turns it all brown. Maybe not photogenic, but definitely tasty.

Much better than the American version of Pepper Lunch.
