Mejiro-Yousukou: 目白 揚子江

yosuko5, originally uploaded by Tony Alexander.

I would normally never blog about Chinese food because my blog is mainly about Japanese cuisines, onsen, and sake. The reason for choosing to post this is because of the historical relevance of this restaurant, which  has  long historical ties to some members of the Royal Family of Japan, plus my blog is a bit Tenno  centered.

 Prince Naruhito, to be exact, used to frequent this Chinese restaurant back when he was in junior high school, and his favorite dish of all time was and still is ebi-chili.   Not sure if he still comes here or not, but for a fact this restaurant has been a family favorite for many years, possibly decades.

 NHK aired a special on this restaurant two years ago highlighting some of the many delicious cuisines offered.  Luckily for me, I was able to research and save the information from the original program and now, two years later I embarked on a long train ride from Yokohama just last week and finally found this place. Very expensive; delicious food!   Perhaps the finest Chinese food I ever had, and I've eaten Chinese food in China, Taiwan, and in Hong Kong a few times.   A plate this size will cost about 2000 yen( high in price;big on taste; small in portions), which is equivalent to about $25.00 U.S.  I enjoyed the food so much I went back the next day and brought my friend with me. Even my friend loved the taste.

I've always been a big fan of Chinese food made in Japan with Japanese ingredients.   Personally, I think Chinese food made in Japan with Japanese ingredients tastes better in Japan than in China.  I call it Chinese food with a Japanese taste.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  

Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
