HK / Thailand / Taiwan

I just got back from Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, and then back to Hong Kong, and will update some food and pictures 🙂   On a random note, Trying to make reservations at restaurants that only accept reservations “1 month from today” is ridiculously dumb. Some shrimp grilling in Bangkok’s Chinatown.  #extebarri    

Single best thing I had in Japan

this awesome. awesome. melon.  At a two michelin star tempura restaurant.  So juicy.  So much flavor.  It was glistening with its own juice.  I believe these melons cost 50-100 dollars each. Controversial? Maybe.  But great product needs little done to it.  Nature has already done its job.  


If you cook protein, Know that some animal died for the dish!  I have been to way too many restaurants that keep fucking up the meat and seafood dishes.  Please, have some respect and MAKE IT NICE

the best part about this meal was the service and the wine pairing.  the somms ask you what you like and you basically get to drink that juice lol.  I told them Cornas and CDP was the mood.    

Akihiro Kurosugi, Osaka

this was bomb.   Sorry for the sideways pics. Will edit when home.  The Cod eggs sushi was very nice. At Akihiro Kurosugi, Osaka, Japan. Some videos on facebook! Easier for me to post there for now. Thanks guys for looking   Next sushi spot and 2 star michelin Tempura spot I’ll post later!  

after I take care of the meat and age it, I’ve never had a better piece of beef. not from any restaurant. not from any 3 michelin restaurant.
