Yonezawa Beef Shabu Shabu

Yonezawa Beef Shabu Shabu, originally uploaded by Tony Alexander.

Another fantastic serving of beef was the shabu shabu, which is thinly sliced portions of beef that's lightly boiled then eaten. Usually it's dipped in sauce depending on what flavor you prefer. I love sesame or "goma" because it's creamy and goes well with this type of beef. Firstly, I've eaten shabu shabu before, and at just about every restaurant chain that offers it. I have never found anything as delicious as this restaurant's shabu shabu, which is called "gudo" or good in English, which is located in Yonezawa city. They serve premium Yonezawa beef which is from female virgin cow. There is clearly a difference in taste. Really! Never let any so called expert tell you any differently. This beef is the best of the best in terms of taste. The maitre d' even served us our first samples. The beef was dipped and moved around in boiling water for about 2 or 3 seconds, then dipped into a sauce like you see in this photo. The meat is still pink actually. Eat it immediately and the taste is unforgettable. What a country.


  1. That's quite a recommendation! Is this the place?

    If so, I'll have to give it a try sometime!


  2. Thanks for the comment Rob. Yes, that's the link and the exact restaurant. Good work. I had the link somewhere. It's worth a try. The staff are very friendly plus they explain everything to you in detail - in Japanese of course.

    Other then that, I highly recommend this place.

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…
