I’ve blogged about Hirosaku once before in this blog post so I won’t be repeating myself. This one is a different menu from my previous visit though, their most expensive menu for lunch – but totally worth it! Every dish was excellent again of course, with my favourite being the one before the soba – a braised eggplant with uni, nori and soramame.

Ishikawa is a Michelin 3 star restaurant but yet it has one of the most unassuming entrances around. It’s just a simple doorway in set in a panel of black wood with a small lit sign, set behind the Bishamonten shrine in the traditional geisha district of Kagurazaka.

This post on Shuhaku isn’t even going to be a proper review, for 2 reasons:

  • the food, while decent, didn’t really tickle my tastebuds so I don’t remember it that well.
  • the chef didn’t speak a shred of English and the menu he gave me was completely in Japanese too. Some of the food was obvious from sight though, but the cooking method was not so clear.

Kanazawa is  well known for their Kaga cuisine, which is their regional version of kaiseki ryori, and it’s based around local specialities and fresh seafood because Kanazawa is located near the sea.

Looking around for a good place to have kaiseki in Kanazawa, the place that got mentioned the most was Zeniya, which was perfect since it was en route on the local loop bus after one of the major attractions in Kanazawa, the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, a definite must-visit for anyone interested in the arts.

It’s been around for a long time, first opened in 1970 by the current head chef’s father, and then taken over by him in 1997 and going on strong till today.

This small and cosy 18-seater Japanese eatery has been steadily gaining a reputation for having one of the longest reservation lists for a place of its size. Read the rest of this entry »

This is the 3rd time I’ve been to Nagomi and the food is still as good. I’m not gonna say that much about Nagomi as you can read my previous two posts here and here, so this will mainly be a simple post.

Yes I’m back again at Kaikaya, which I first visited back in 2009 and wrote about it. I liked it so much that I decided to return to Kaikaya again this time to try some other dishes there.

Hirosaku is a homely little restaurant that is family-run, helmed by a fatherly chef and his very kind wife. Sometimes at night their daughter helps them out as well.
