Edogawa Naramachi - An Unagi Feast in an Edo-jidai Shophouse

Edogawa Naramachi is renowned for their execution of fresh unagi and the restaurant is equally popular with both locals and tourists. We walked in at around 730pm on a weeknight and were greeted by really warm service. We took off our shoes and placed them in the lockers provided before we were ushered to a traditional tatami-style room.

I was really insistent on making a trip to Kobe just to try Kobe beef until I was told that I could actually get it in Osaka. Tsurugyu is a really popular haunt with both locals and tourists alike. You need a reservation to dine here, so don't even dream of trying to walk in!

I've heard so many good things about Cook & Brew on level 33 of The Westin!

Ever since I saw pictures of the Fox Village back in 2014, visiting it has been on my bucket list. So when I booked my trip to Japan back in March, I knew that I had to make it here! Our original plan was to travel here from Tokyo but we made a last minute decision to go from Kyoto instead. We left Kyoto at 8am in the morning, arrived at Tokyo around noon to deposit our luggage in the lockers, and made our way to Shiroishi-Zao from there.

Few have seen Morton's in daylight but with the new Sunday lunch that features a three-course lunch set that goes for just $65, things are about to change. Having debuted Sunday lunch on Easter Sunday, Morton's brought it back again on Father's Day. The overwhelming response surprised the team at Morton's and they have decided to make it a permanent fixture, much to the joy of their fans!
