For lunch, my boss took me to this kushikatsu restaurant, ぎんざ磯むら. Kushikatsu is a Japanese-style deep-fried food, vegetables, meat or seafoods on bamboo sticks, which is originated in Osaka, Western Japan.

The restaurant seems old but clean and cozy with the traditional Japanese interiors and great lighting. The service was very good, too. Every food was served hot and at the right time. I liked it when I could watch how they prepare and fry our food over the counter. It’s better to have seats at the bar here.

Will definitely go back next time :)

One-day Outing at Ginza

On September 4th, I met up with my old friend N at Ginza.  She was one of my best high school buddies and studied in Kyoto, then moved to Kita-Kyushu for work while I was  in Tokyo. So we rarely saw each other since graduating from high school.  On Saturday, we did spend one whole day walking, shopping, dining out at Ginza.

Chuo-dori, the main street in Ginza is free of vehicle on weekends

Dinner -August 18th, 2010-

No-Zangyo (overwork) Day started a couple month ago in my workplace and every Wednesday all the workers are supposed to leave the office on time. So, this Wednesday I had dinner with my GM and a younger co-worker M as the GM asked us out.

Since M said she doesn’t often have Chinese foods, he picked a Chinese restaurant in Ginza, Shanghai Tang Bao. Their nine-course dinner sounded nice and was delicious. At the same time, it was filling and me and M couldn’t eat much after the appetizer and two dumpling dishes.
