Sushi Hotaru - Cheap & Good Sushi in Melbourne's CBD

 photo sushi hotaru mid city.jpg
Sushi Hotaru receives long queues every single day. The sushi train restaurant is especially popular amongst students and young people. This is one place where having tons of sushi won't burn a hole in your wallet. That being said, you also should have a fair expectation of what you're in for. You can't come here expecting top quality Japanese sushi of course.

Shinjuku Kappo Nakajima - Traditional Japanese Dinner at the "Cheapest" Michelin-Starred Restaurant in Tokyo

 photo shinjuku kappo nakajima michelin dinner.jpg
Have been dying to dine here ever since I heard that it's the cheapest One-Michelin-Starred establishment in Tokyo. Everyone raves about their sardine lunch sets which are insanely affordable. Because I didn't do my research properly, I made a booking here for dinner, thinking that the sardine sets will be available too. Unfortunately, the sardine sets are only available during lunch and the queues are crazy everyday. So, I unknowingly booked myself a traditional Japanese dinner at this fine-dining restaurant.

Fengjia Night Market (Tai Chung) - 7 Delicious Street Food that You Must Eat

My second trip to Taiwan presented me with the opportunity to visit Fengjia Night Market in Tai Chung. Fengjia is the largest night market in Taiwan and it has so much to offer in terms of food and shopping. Our cab driver told us what to eat at Fengjia Night Market and where the stalls are so we managed to locate them with ease. While we tried far too much food for our own good, some were really disappointing so we have compiled this list of food that we deemed worthy of your time and money.

Wagyumafia The Cutlet Sandwich - The First and Best Wagyu Katsu Sando in Tokyo

 photo waygumafia tokyo katsu sando.jpg
Wagyumafia set out to raise awareness and educate the general public, and especially those with a discerning palate, about genuine wagyu beef. Over the years, we've seen the rise of "Kobe-style" beef in America, Australian wagyu beef and more, but they're nothing like true blue wagyu from Japan. Hence, Wagyumafia's mission is definitely commendable. Situated in Nakameguro, 2-year-old Wagyumafia The Cutlet Sandwich is a small little space that has a very lean menu. They offer katsu sando (cutlet sandwiches), a couple of sides, and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
