Shabu Shabu ’til 6am?

I heard a little rumour that Bistro Aoyama might be re-opening, under new ownership. They reportedly intend to serve shabu shabu until 6am, which I think is brilliant.

But will they get Kiku’s sauce recipes?

“Gentle as water”

There’s just something creepy about this. Gentle as water, yet kills 99.9% of bacteria. The gentle killer? A bit scary, no?

Robatayaki Grill Tsukuneya

Now, I’m not a big fan of Nagoya-anything, maybe with the exception of Chanpon. But here, I was pleased to find out that most of their items were really not much different from the usual Robatayaki items you find nationwide in Japan.
