In case you don’t know. I love Japanese food very very much.
During my short work trip to Japan, I had a few days to roam around eating.
Instead of flooding everyone with too many yummy food, I’m splitting the meals into different days.
For today, we’re having meals from Day 1: Lunch at Kamakura and Dinner in Tokyo.
Zaru soba at Kamakura Karari
I took a side trip to Kamakura on day 1 because my N’EX and Suica package includes the Kamakura stop.
I was really hungry when I walked on the streets of Kamakura. But I did not dare pop into casual-looking but surely expensive cafes so I wandered around.
I found several people waiting outside Karari. I entered the doors but was asked to wait outside and write my name on a piece of paper.
It was an open kitchen concept restaurant. The chefs fried tempura while the customers watched. The second floor was for tour groups so I was stuck downstairs.
The meal was great. I loved the free flow of cold tea as well.
Yayoiken at Minami-senju
The restaurant near my hotel at Minami-senjuu had coupon machines at the door (like Nakau!).
I chose a pork chop set because Japanese katsu is delicious! There’s even unlimited refill of rice if you’re hungry.
Unfortunately, my pork smelled in a bad way. At least the miso soup was ok.
