Food: Grom (Italy)

If there is one thing that I really miss from living in Italy, it is eating gelato. While I did not eat gelato every day (I didn’t want to gain too much weight), I did eat it quite often, maybe 2 times a week. There are plenty of good gelato stores in Italy, but one…

Food: Junpuu (Honolulu)

Address: 1010 S King St #108, Honolulu, HI 96814 Junpuu is a ramen restaurant in Hawaii that I really enjoy; although their ramen is good, my favorite dish is actually their char siu quesadilla. I have not really had this dish anywhere else (and unfortunately, I could not find any good picture of it online),…

Food: Kyubey (Tokyo)

Since I just did a recent post on Sushi Zanmai, which is sushi for a reasonable price, I thought I would do one on Kyubey today. Kyubey is significantly higher quality sushi than Sushi Zanmai, although it comes at a significantly higher price. If you can go for lunch, it is the same quality fish…

Food: Sushi Zanmai (Tokyo)

Sushi Zanmai is one of the most popular sushi chains in Tokyo. While it is not the best, highest quality sushi, it is a great value for the price. There are many super high end omakase only sushi places in Japan that can be anywhere from $150-400; however, these are obviously not places that everyone…

Food: Satay Inn (Hong Kong)

Address: Hong Kong, North Point, City Garden Rd, 9號城市花園酒店地下低層 Satay Inn is one of my favorite restaurants in Hong Kong. I mentioned it briefly in one of my previous posts, but it is deserving of its own post. It is a Singaporean restaurant in Hong Kong, and they are known for their incredible Hainan Chicken.…

Food: Tamura’s (Honolulu)

Tamuras Fine Wine is actually a wine/alcohol shop (if you couldn’t already tell from the name), but I go there for the poke. I had always known where Tamuras was, but before my friend brought me to it a couple of years ago, I had no idea that they even sold poke. At all of…

Food: Jojoen (Tokyo)

Jojoen is a high-end yakiniku chain throughout Tokyo. Every time that I go to Japan, I make sure that I make at least one visit to Jojoen (multiple if I am lucky enough). I have been to 5+ locations, and all of them meet the super high quality standards that I expect. If you have…
