JAL in-flight meal:
|Appetizer: Prosciutto, cheese sticks with pesto garlic dip.|
Snacks: Senbei and dried fruits
|Starter. We loved the shiraae (mashed tofu salad).|
|Dessert: Panna cotta. I even finished up Sis'.|
|Main course. Chicken for Sis. Fish for me.|
|When everyone was asleep. We were up and...eating.|
|Caffeine fix for me and tea for Sis|
Coffee with jelly....very good.
|Sakura Ebi tamagoyaki from Tsukiji market.|
|GIOTTO's Fruits Roll Cake and Summer...Honey....something...|
Then we went to Izuei Honten that specialize in unagi (eel). I read about it from Paul's Travel Pics but did not had the chance to visit the restaurant when we went to Japan in 2009. I made sure we had time to go there this trip. >D
Izuei Honten @ Ueno
|A few minutes walk from Ueno Station.|
The restaurant have English menu, just ask for it.
Shokado Bento: Appetizer, sashimi, tenpura, simmered dish, pickled vegetables, tofu soup, and rice.
Meanwhile in Imperial Palace:
|Couldn't resist posting some flora pictures. =D There's even plum trees. Saw a group of elderly gathered around the trees and I went to "ke-po". Found out that it was edible but the fruits were sour. Sis had to drag me away.|
In Tokyo Station:
|A random restaurant that specialize in soba.|
Ordered beef curry udon and black sesame soba with tenpura, recommended by the staff. The soba is good. QQ and jelly-ish.
More food! =D
|Pariya Gelato again.|
Not-so-goo potstickers (yaki-goza).
Some side dish we brought from the food department.
Morinaga's melon milk. Yum~
|Akebono's yomogi daifuku (mugwort daifuku).|
-thumbs up- Their mochi is always good.
Some food we brought from the food department.
One of my many caffeine fix.
JAL's tiny mini cup noodle. Not so good.
|We could never resist this. Will always come back for more~~|
|Figs and peaches. They were cheap and fresh - brought them from the farmers' market.|
|Then we were off to Kyoto. |
And just look at the line for Krispy Kreme....it was like that everywhere in Japan. @_@
