A season has past and spring is coming soon. Guess I should really have to be more hardworking and work harder on the backlogs. Autumn is a romantic season, the weather is chilling and joyful; with the sun up high in the sky but you […]
A Journey of Aroma and Taste with Ikeda Town’s beauties：Sake from Daisekkei Sake Brewery and Fukugen Shuzo
I just “came back” from Japan, virtually; visited the Ikeda Town in Nagano Prefecture to be exact. It was a short ‘half day tour’ but it was a very fruitful one. Special thanks to Mr Danny Leong, the Master Sake Sommelier and also the owner […]
Here comes my review on the recent hottest ramen place – KANBE.
豚麺処 官兵衛 KANBE
Located in 163 Retail Park, this newest ramen restaurant has drawn a long queue over here every day, especially on the weekends; patrons may have to queue for at least 30 to 40 mins (if you are lucky) or up to one hour plus for a bowl of piping hot Hakata style tonkotsu ramen. And some of the days, they sold out quite early too.
I was there quite early on one Sunday, around 11am and there was already a queue on the line. Glad to have my friends who managed to reach earlier at around 10.40am, grabbed the ‘seat’ on the queue. We weren’t the first round sit-in patrons, but definitely the second round, perfect time for our lunch.

Come to Sendai, one must not leave without savouring the specialty dish over here! That’s Gyutan (beef tongue), one of the Sendai’s specialty that is sliced and grilled over the charcoal fire. A Japanese friend of mine highly recommended this restaurant – Tanya Zenjirou たんや善治郎.

The gyutan specialty shop that is specializing in salt-grilled beef tongue (shioyaki gyutan). It is just some walk away from JR Sendai Station West Exit. I was told that there will be queue always, so I avoid coming at peak hours. Lucky me, there was no queue during my visit for an early dinner (roughly around 6pm).
But… it was already happening inside the shop!
