Ramen with spicy miso base in Shibuya
Pork Dumplings in Shibuya
Ebi (shrimp) burger at McDonalds
Tokyo was a real pleasure to discover and a dream come true for a foodie. So many great flavors to try, whether it’s street food or fancy restaurants. Ingredients I didn’t enjoy much in Montreal were completely different in Japan.
Everything is so fresh but so different from the American or even European cuisine. Try going in a grocery store and finding all the base ingredients you are used to buy to make a simple recipe. But adapting is a pleasure here and even if the food is different, it ends up being maybe even more balanced that what we are used to eat.
I really want to go back in the future, especially now that I feel at ease in Tokyo. <3
A few souvenirs:
- Getting a free umbrella from the owner of a Korean restaurant because it’s raining a little bit
- Going in a mini bar in Golden Gai and be served too many tapas for free by the cutest woman bar owner I have met in my life
