Stand-up steak restaurant is now open in Ginza

 

Stand-up-eating restaurants are not unusual here.

Many people here are pressed with work every day and don't want to spend too much time to eat, so stand-up restaurants enable these people to eat a satisfying meal for a very short time. Typical examples are stand-up bars, noodle stands, yakitori (skewered grilled chicken) joints, etc. Recently, more fancy types of stand-up restaurants have opened and people started enjoying full-fledged cuisine such as French and Italian food, casually and reasonably.

On January 5th, a new stand-up restaurant called Ikinari! Steak opened in Ginza, Tokyo and it has been packed with customers since opening day. The restaurant's concept is "Without appetizer, come straight to enjoy steak and wine!" and they serve char-grilled Australian prime rib thick-cut steaks.

You can have your steak cut as thick as you want. They charge you 5 yen per 1g of steak.  At lunch time, a 300g steak or 300g hamburger steak comes with soup and salad and costs only 1,000 yen.

Ginza, where the stand-up steak restaurant is located is Tokyo's most famous shopping district, perhaps a Japanese version of 5th Avenue in NYC.

No words are needed to explain how cute they are!

It's awesome to see the cuteness of cats become doubled when they are on rice. Neko-Sushi… It is a simple work of photoshopping, however, it will give you a warm feeling every time you look at them.

Neko-Sushi is available in 2 sets of postcards (Set A and Set B). Each set features 10 cards (14cm x 14cm).

Guaranteed to make many smiles! :)

From Ezaki Glico's famous Pocky series, new Pocky Panda will be released on March 11.

Of course, it's not a panda flavored Pocky. It has a cookies & cream flavor and the contrast of the dark cookie and white cream reminds us of the color of pandas.

In addition to the regular package that has a panda design on, there seems to be a rare version of the package with a fluffy panda on it.

Can you tell the panda on the box at the right side is fluffy?

Calpis is a traditional Japanese soft drink, which probably all Japanese people have had at least once in their life and that most Japanese enjoy. It is also likely that most foreigners who have tried it do not particularly enjoy it.

It's a white, milky and acidic drink.

Tonkatsu (Pork cutlets) is surely one of the most loved Japanese food by Japanese as well as foreigners. The combination of the deep fried juicy thick pork, crunchy panko and flavorful sauce are dreamy.

However, Yoshibe, a Tonkatsu specialized restaurant in Kobe, broke the rule and have made it into a dessert. They are going to sell the Tonkatsu dessert for a limited time only from April 26 to May 6.

The fresher the soba noodle is, the better it tastes. Yet it's not easy to make good soba noodles at home unless you are a soba chef or have enough soba-making experience.

 

Japanese burger chain, LOTTERIA, is going to start selling Tsuke-pote (meaning "dipping"-"potato" in Japanese) on January 9th. Tsuke-pote is french fries with chocolate sauce for dipping. It will be sold for a limited time only from January 9th through mid February.

It probably tastes like chocolate covered pretzels or potato chips, but it should be a bit more greasy. Just by imagining its salty-sweet flavor, it makes my mouth water :)
