Anpanman Bakery aka ジャムおじさんのパン工場. These delicious breads are not only cute, they are so soft and fluffy plus they are all Anpanman characters. This bakery is located inside of Anpanman Museum, which I blogged about in my previous post and I was pleasantly surprised at how good this bakery was. Constantly crowded with people trying to get their favorite characters, and with all the options they have you can’t go wrong.
I enjoyed the curry bread(kare-panman), the sausage bread(frank furu-to), cream pan(cream panda) and the cheese bread (meiken cheese). My daughter loved this place and the breads. Highly recommend it if you’re close by as you don’t need to pay the museum admission fee just to visit the bakery :)

Happy Belated New Year!
Hope everyone is doing well. Apologies for the lack of updates but I’m finally posting a yummy traditional Japanese place located inside of Roppongi Midtown.
Famous for their Tsukemono (pickles) from Nagoya, this restaurant serves seasonal fish with simple healthy options that most Japanese people would like to eat as an everyday meal. The fish is cooked perfectly and the sides are also great. It’s pretty awesome how you can get a healthy traditional meal in Roppongi Midtown. Check it out if you’re in the area.

Yummy curry with egg that literally melts in your mouth!
Please note: This is a cafe located in Naoshima, in Kagawa-prefecture.
This cozy retro curry house located in a hidden home in Naoshima. The cafe is an old home that is transformed into a modern/retro/cool Japanese style cafe. The curry is delicious. Do you see that egg?! I highly recommend you ordering that one if you get a chance to dine here.
Pictured above are 3 different types of curry:
– “Fuwatoro Omurice Tomato Sauce Curry” 780yen
– “Fuwatoro Omurice Curry with Coconut” 780yen
– “Curry with Coconut and Rice” 780yen
We also added the ‘Lunch Set B’ deal (only available during 11:30am – 3pm) for an extra 520yen which comes with a potato salad, drink or beer, and dessert. (You can add 200yen more to make it into a glass of wine).
Dine here for a cozy awesome Naoshima lunch experience :)

In case you haven’t seen my post on Oreno Italian Jazz, I recommend reading it before checking this post out.
The Oreno group has been super popular in Tokyo with their affordable restaurants which provide unbelievable prices for what you get. Each Oreno series restaurant has chefs from famous hotels in charge and the only reason they can provide incredible prices is because most of the dining area is standing room only plus they only let you stay for two hours max.
I loved Oreno Italian and this is another great Oreno restaurant that specializes in Japanese food. Because the portions are a little smaller, you might eat a little more than the Italian Jazz but it’s still a great deal. Pictured above are:
– Mizudashi Gyokuro (水出し玉露) 1200yen
– Wagyu Sukiyakinabe (和牛すきやき鍋) 499yen
– Ebi Tenpura (海老天婦羅) x3 1280yen
– Carpaccio 780yen
– Renko Tai Sanshoyaki (レンコ鯛山椒焼き) 780yen
– Ageebishinjyou (揚げ海老シンジョウ) 480yen
– Daikon 480yen
– Nanbanzuke (南蛮漬け) 480yen
– Sabasushi (鯖寿司) 680yen
– Hojicha Pudding (ほうじ茶プリン) 280yen
There’s a 300yen music charge per guest since they have a live singer perform which I think is totally worth it. If you are near Shinbashi/Ginza and have time to wait in line, definitely check this place out! For tips on how to get a table, read my Oreno Italian Post.

This Yakitori place in Yokohama is only open for dinner time. Yakitori Torigen is located about 3 min walking distance from Yokohama Station Nishiguchi exit (West exit) on the B1 floor. The place gets quite packed for dinner time as they are famous for their generous portion of yakitori which is both good and affordable.
As you can see, we had quite a variety of yakitori which were all yummy. They even had Toriwasa (715yen) – the chicken sashimi, which was pretty good as well. The menu is written in Japanese but has a few photos of their popular items which you can point to.
If you happen to be by Yokohama station or if you are looking for a decent yakitori spot in Yokohama, check this place out.
