I am a sucker for a good bowl of boat noodles. 
the one at @sabbderthairestaurant is good, the broth is dark and intense and has good flavours. 
I know that the defining ingredient in its broth is fresh pig's blood, though I'm not a fan, I am willing to turn a blind eye because as they say, "what you can't see, you pretend it's not there"...I may have just made that saying up on the spot.

bo-ssam + fried chicken. 
it's been a while since I've visited Mook Ji, the food is still as delicious as always! also, it was my first time trying bo-ssam after discovering this dish in countless of k-dramas. I can say that it won't be the last time that I will be ordering bo-ssam 😋

kichi kichi omu rice was definitely one of the highlights for me in Kyoto.

that fluffy omelette sliced open by the man himself, Chef Motokichi Yukimura and topped with the delicious demi-glace sauce. 
how I wish I could have this for dinner tonight.

take me back to Japan so I can spend $70 on strawberry perfection.

no strawberries will ever come close to how fragrant and delicious these ones from Sembikiya were.

will I spend that much money on strawberries again if I was in Japan? Hell yeah.

if I had to eat only one type of laksa for the rest of my life, it would be assam laksa.

when I was in primary school, the canteen lady would make this quite spicy but even as a child, I would devour two bowls of it and burn later.

this assam laksa at Laksa King ticked all the right boxes for my mum and I; the broth was thick and flavourful, you could tell they didn't stinge with the fish when making the broth. I'll definitely be back for more when I need a fix.

- YUZU gelato -

Last Sunday, a “food blogger” decided to give @bekugelato a 1 star rating on Zomato because the owner was delayed in opening her store by 10 minutes. 
Her review was along the lines of “…has tough competition with the likes of Zero Gradi and Pidapipo down the road. Came here with high expectations at opening time only to be faced with an empty store and not a soul in sight. Stuck around for a bit but still no one and no social media updates on issues back of house. Contacted via social media to find out there were staff back of house that didn’t bother to check for customers at the front. Hopefully these teething issues are sorted out soon”. I was quite disappointed/infuriated because this person decided to post such a scathing review that neglected to tell the truth, that the owner of Beku Gelato apologised profusely and even offered her a free double scoop the next time she visits. Also, the reason she was delayed in opening her store by 10 minutes was because her son was unwell, is she supposed to update social media and tell everyone about her personal issues? 
Yes, the owner of Beku Gelato is my friend but as a decent human being, I couldn’t stand by and watch this “food blogger” think she had the right to just bad mouth a place online without telling the whole truth. I wrote back a reply to her review stating the above and also, “It’s disappointing just because you have the power to review/write that you abuse it. People like you shouldn’t be writing at all when you are just out to criticise small business owners who are just trying to make a living.” The problem with today’s society, people lack empathy and compassion, and some think they are entitled to whatever they want. REALITY CHECK, the world doesn’t owe you anything. *post continued in comments*

the infamous steak sandwich from Shima.

look at how beautiful the sandwich is stuffed with all that steak 😍 had this as takeaway last night and just ate it on the train this morning whilst on our way to Narita Airport. it was just over 10 hours before we devoured this and the steak was still so tender and soft. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

Last meal in Tokyo, saved it for Shima.

The sirloin steak I had was cooked to perfection of medium rare and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.

It would have been a great last night in Tokyo if it wasn't for Rihanna (@badgalriri) who decided to eat at the same restaurant. I have never paid much attention to Hollywood or the celebrity scene so when you decided to "grace" us with your presence, it would have been nice if you had decided to sit at a quiet table in the corner of the restaurant instead of at the front counter getting chummy with your guy friend ruining it for everyone else who was there for the food. I absolutely did not appreciate being told off by your bodyguards for using my phone when they assumed I was trying to take a photo of you. I was not interested in you, I was interested in my food. Having to observe other people being told off too when they were just using their phones or seeing your bodyguards telling off the older couple sitting next to me who wanted to take a photo of the steak sandwich being made ruined the experience for us and everyone else at the restaurant. 
If you wanted privacy, you should have just booked out the whole place, I am sure you could have afforded it. Unlike you, we are not rich and famous, the rest of us fork out a fair amount of money to eat at Shima and to enjoy the experience without being harassed by your bodyguards.

I cannot fault Shima for what happened tonight. As we left the restaurant, the maitre d' was extremely apologetic and when she found out we were on our honeymoon, she gave us a cheesecake on the house as congratulations.

tsukumen at its best at Taishoken.

the late Kazuo Yamagishi was called "The God of Ramen" as he is the one who invented tsukumen in 1961.

I may not have gone to any of the Michelin starred ramen places but this place has an amazing tasting broth that pairs so well with the noodles and the queue was out the door.

not sure why but I was one of the only three girls during lunch time and the other two were school girls.

kichi kichi omurice.

the amount of infamous videos I have seen of Chef Motokichi Yukimura making the most delicious-looking omurice over the years has plagued me and I never thought I would finally get to see the man himself in action and taste his food!

the omelette was so fluffy and with the combination of the rice and demi-glace sauce...YUM!

🍜 no ramen no life 🍜

Menbakaichidai has been serving fire ramen for more than 30 years. 
You can definitely feel the heat in this place when they pour the hot oil over the ramen.

Highly entertaining and the ramen is tasty too!

Murasawa Sirloin Steak (Grade: A5)

the steak was incredibly juicy, tender and it melted in your mouth! if you brought your grandma here for lunch and she had no teeth, it wouldn't be a problem coz she can just gum it...that's how soft the steak is!

this place opens at 11:00am but there's already a queue way before it opens, you have to put your name down and wait patiently (I waited an hour).

walking around on our last night in Osaka looking for a feed and we stumbled across this little gem.

tonkotsu ramen with black garlic oil, noodles accompanied by a rich fish-based dipping broth and fried chicken.

I absolutely loved dipping the noodles in the broth, that broth was packed with so much flavour and it was just delish slurping it all up!

walking around on our last night in Osaka looking for a feed and we stumbled across this little gem. tonkotsu ramen with black garlic oil, noodles accompanied by a rich fish-based dipping broth and fried chicken.

meoto zenzai is a symbol of happy marriage and is a lucky charm of love.

the zenzai is served in two bowls; one represents the "husband" and the other is the "wife". sweet red bean soup served with rice cake, you can either have it hot or cold.

after spending $250 at the ferrari of fruit shops, it has ruined my tastebuds for melons and strawberries.

this musk melon cost me $150 and my goodness, it's the tastiest melon ever! when you bite into the melon, you can't help that it gets a bit messy because it's so sweet and so so juicy that the juice runs down your fingers! I'll never eat another melon as perfect as this one.

I know I previously said the strawberries I got was the best I have ever tasted but I'll have to retract and say these are the most expensive ($70), the tastiest and most fragrant strawberries I have ever eaten. I had these with me in Tokyo and Mt Fuji and every time I opened the fridge, the sweetest smell of the strawberries would permeate the room that you wish your kitchen would smell that nice every day.

the apple was firm and had the crunchiest texture that I thoroughly enjoyed it, if only apples in Melbourne were this nice. Jazz apples may be close to it but not close enough.

as for the persimmon, it was delicious but I couldn't really tell what the difference was to a normal persimmon since I eat it all the time when it's in season.

Sembikiya Fruit Parlor, one day when I'm back in Tokyo, I will visit you again.

the uni thing I need in my life.

five types of uni served on rice. every mouthful was just so tasty! the uni were from different regions of Japan and they were all creamy and sweet  in their own way.

not your average bowl of ramen 🍜 it may be blue but the chicken broth has nothing artificial in it and it was excellent paired with the perfectly cooked ramen, chicken and egg.

Iberico 100% Bellota from Spain.

out of the three, my friend and I loved this one the most - it was fatty, juicy and packed with so much flavour!

the tag that is on the plate indicates the number of servings this prized pork has been served to date.

Tonkatsu like you've never had before. 
At Butagumi, it's all about the ぶた and this place is unique in the sense that they offer over 50 different varieties of porky goodness.

How to choose? I already had my eyes set on the Iberico 100% Bellota from Spain and for the other two, we asked for recommendations.

Imo-Buta from Chiba (left)
Watanabe Berkshire from Kagoshima (right)

I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to have normal tonkatsu again without thinking of how amazing the Iberico was but in saying that, this would break my bank if I had it on a regular basis. once in a while, it will definitely put a smile on your face but I'm sad that I'll be so far away from it.

Beforehand, they also serve you with appetizers and the cherry tomato was the juiciest and most delicious tomato I have ever had! I know I seem to be having a lot of firsts on this trip but that tomato was an explosion of flavour that was so delicious and so refreshing.

If you love pork and you get the chance, I highly recommend trying Butagumi.

$10 for 12 strawberries probably sounds a bit steep but I wanted something healthy since I haven't eaten much fruit or veg.

initially, I was only going to eat two strawberries before taking a nap but when I took my first bite, my reaction was, "shit, this is amazing!". it's up to you to believe me or not but these are the best strawberries I have ever eaten in my life! they are not the Sembikiya Fruit Parlour ones which I want to try but these were so juicy and so perfect with not a blemish on them at all. (yes, I ate them all in one go) 
why can't strawberries be this nice back in Melbourne? why can't food and service in Melbourne at least have a general good standard that they should adhere to?

the most amazing pancakes I have ever eaten.

that jiggle on the pancakes, so mesmerising to watch especially given the height of the pancakes. these pancakes were so soft and fluffy and they just melted in your mouth.

omakase 🍣

It's amazing how Yasuda-san remembers what he has served you even when it's a full house and this is all done whilst chatting to everyone and giving them knowledge on what real sushi is.

Yasuda-san once used to be a bodybuilder in NYC before deciding he wanted to be a sushi chef but as he puts it, "I have no chef friends, I am the first generation and the last generation and I just want to serve delicious sushi". He taught himself how to make the rice, the ginger and soya sauce, it's all his original recipe.

Honestly, it was a very delicious meal and the perfect way to end our first night in Tokyo. I loved how entertaining Yasuda-san was that I forgot how many pieces I had devoured.

last night's shenanigans at @bekugelato with Kenny, it was the perfect weather for it!

I had the minty lychee sorbet and the green apple, cucumber & mint sorbet which was absolutely refreshing and perfect to beat the heat! hehe I even took home a 1L tub with the two flavours plus the coconut sorbet with jackfruit.

if you haven't been down to Beku Gelato yet, I can definitely say "you are missing out, my friend". all their gelato and sorbet are made with all natural ingredients 😋

who doesn't love a good scoop of gelato?

there are plenty of good gelato places in Melbourne and @bekugelato would hands down be my favourite gelato place now.

maybe I am biased but ever since I had my first taste of their gelato at a friend's wedding, I was hooked. And I even had their gelato cart at my wedding and it was a hit! 
Agusta whips up amazing gelato and sorbet, my absolute favorites are:
- coconut sorbet with jackfruit
- teh tarik
- ketan hitam/pulut hitam
- durian
- matcha

what makes their gelato and sorbet different is that she whips up asian flavours that you can't get anywhere else and the coconut sorbet with jackfruit is the best!

they are still trading as @therollingscoops if you ever want to hire a gelato cart but now they have a store!

stay tuned for when their grand opening will be 😁

when your body is feeling a bit meh and you really want that donut but you tell yourself that you shouldn't so you opt for something healthier.

my hawaiian bowl was pretty good, it was healthy enough but I think the balance of ingredients could be better...there was just too much rice and not enough of everything else. @pokedau

ordered KFC from Chick-In for our team lunch because that’s how we roll for our monthly team building events (it's always about food).

mooncake for days. 
the best time to buy mooncake is after the mooncake festival because there's discount everywhere...now, I have lots of calories to consume in my own sweet time. 
my favourite is the frozen musang king snowskin mooncake that is also the most expensive one, they are tinier but also the best because it's filled with 100% durian! 😍

one of my favourite vietnamese dishes; bun rieu.

the best bun rieu I have had was at an unassuming stall at Binh Tay market in Saigon, the next best was in Footscray and now, I've found a good one in Springvale 😋

bun rieu aside; whilst I was queueing up to get a seat, an older asian couple decided to cut in front of me, did not give two 💩 that I was there first [insert profanities]. we ended up sitting at the same table opposite each other and I made sure they knew I was pissed with them. I'm all for respecting my elders but I don't appreciate people who cut the line, if I did what they did to me, they would have berated me with gusto.

when great minds think alike at 8am 🔆 @monsadventure 
thyme roasted mixed mushrooms - olive tapenade - goats whip - kale - white truffle - poached eggs - sourdough

mushrooms and truffle, always the perfect combination.

double yolk durian mooncake. 
apparently, a double yolk mooncake is worth 860kcal which is equivalent to two plates of nasi lemak. YUM to both and the calories!

sinfully delicious for a friday morning breakfast, a great way to start the weekend! popped the martabak in the microwave for 30secs to warm it up and the cheese was oozy, yum! 😋

kbbq date night at @nodagrill.

the food was good but I found the portions to be on the smaller side. I still prefer Mrs Kim's Grill in Carnegie, their portions are bigger and the food is tastier.

chirashi zushi from @eatyuzu.

it was delicious and the flavours were well balanced but for the amount of food you get, it's quite pricey.

my favourite chirashi bowl is still from Shyun, generous amount of sashimi, fills you up and doesn't break your bank.
