Food Trip Friday--Tanabata Festives at Izakaya



These are the foods that was served during the Tanabata Matsuri ( you can read my previous post for some of the Japanese culture )and the summer starry night.After enjoying our eyes with lots of dances at the parade, we dine out at Izakaya ( a Japanese restaurant ). Kind a pricey but the food is all worth it, we have privacy at the room ( good for me coz I don' t like to take my ordered food photos when there' s people around me. Don' t get me wrong, there' s nothing wrong about it--it' s just me)
I love the restaurant' s lay-out that is nicely done and sat on a private room and had great food and great service. And oh! On a side note about drinks I would also like to recomend you to try ( well, if you' re an alcohol drinker ) a nama -shibori shochu based( distilled drinks ) And my all-time drinks are grapefruits, kiwi, and lime. Nama means fresh and shibori means squeeze so you have to squeeze the fresh fruit of your choice and mixed them to your shochu based drink.MMMMM!!\(^0^)/

Not included at the photo: Yaki Hokki ( a grilled fish ). Enjoy!!

Baked Teriyaki chicken ( with cheese and nori ( seaweed ) on top ) baguette --I love this the best!! If you' re a fan of teriyaki, you' ll love this, too!! Bite with a crunch and a melty cheezy will follow!!
Nankotsu ( chicken cartilage ) with sauce---our appetizer isn' t complete without this one!!
Ebi Mayonnaise-- Forgive me but this shrimp with mayo sauce is soo sinful!!
Wakaba' s Choco and Banana parfait for dessert



For Food trippers join us here. Chibugan na!!! \(^0^)/

I'm telling you any sinful food is delicious. Naku ang shrimp pa sabi nila nakakahiblood pag sobra. Di ba ang liyempo eh fatty pero naku naman kayang taubin ang ilang pinggang kanin. hehe.

eto 'yung source ko dun sa onion rings pero di ko nacomplete ang ingredients estimate na lang pero masarap pa rin 'yung luto ko. hehe

oh my, i'd love to tray all these! just thinking of the dessert makes my mouth water.:P

Momma Bams said...

wowoweee! namimiss ko na talaga mag-izakaya. Yung medyp pricey na izakaya ha lol. Iba kasi mga sineserve nila diba, fresh at masarap talaga, unlike sa mga izakaya chains.
Sarap naman ng order nyo gosh... AKo din lagi ko order na drinks ay nama grape fruit sour (yun ba yung nama shibori shochu? ) Nakaka-4 na baso ako nun lol, mas ok kesa sa beer.

Ladynred said...

No doubt about that. Mukhang masarap lahat!

Meryl (proud pinay) said...

chubskulit said...

Shrimp with mayo.. ehh hehehe..

Di ka ata umakyat sa bundok ng tralala at nakapagblogging ka on Sunday..

Lately di ko feel pumunta sa church because of my laziness, I love sleeping late on Saturday night so pag Sunday tinatamad ako bumangon ng maaga hehehe..

Sa December 1st na ang alis namin Clang, hubby wanted to visit my family before flying back to the States but ako ang umaayaw kasi that means gastos na naman.. I'd rather send the money to my family than spend it to air fare..

Hay buhay! Have a blessed sunday clang!

Dhemz said...

Chibugan ulit ako dito Mami Clang...mustamos ang weekend natin jan?

woi salamat sa madaming commentos mo sa kusina ko....hehehe..much appreciated talaga....:)

yung RR and AR pala mami Clang is ranks yon....yung RR is Real Rank from IZEA (paid sites) tapos yung AR naman Alexa Rank....dapat kasi pag nag take ka ng paid opps...dapat mababa yung RR and AR mo para qualified ka sa mga opportunities....wala ka pa rin bang plan na sasali sa paid post?

kisses kay Wakaba and Haruka....mwah!

from my kitchen...babosh! have a great weekend..holiday pala dito sa lunes..labor day....:)
