Meat & Mushroom Mixed Rice ひき肉キノコの炊き込みご飯

I think it's quite clear by now that although I love cooking, I also like taking the easy way out. I like recipes that either have only a few ingredients, or very few steps needed when making it. Today's recipe is no exception! Rice cookers in Japan are well-known for being funky, high-tech machines: you can set the timer to ...

Mi Choripan ミ・チョリパン

YJ can take all the credit for this lovely find! Normally I'm the cafe/restaurant scout, but he had spotted this colorful choripan shop on his daily commute, and was keen on checking it out. So we did! YJが見つけてくれたのお店、ミ・チョリパン! We found authentic Argentinian soul food, ...

YJ is on a roll with his second blog post in one week! He's been holding off the ramen for a while, but was invited out recently to check out a popular place with a coworker the other day. He was roped into kindly decided to write a review. Alas, there's only one picture, but it's of the most important part: the food. ...

Magic Spice: Everything Nice

YJ and I have a few go-to restaurants that we always seem to go back to when we can't be bothered to research a new place to dine out. In that respect we're already old fuddy duddies, I guess, but it works for us! One of our absolute favorite places is a soup curry restaurant in Shimokitazawa, and we end up going roughly ...
