  1. Great night shots. It’s always so hard with artificial light. But you have indeed captured the mood.

    • Yah, begitulah. Biaya hidup sehari-hari di Jepang memang relatif lebih mahal daripada di Indonesia.

      Terima kasih, Eka. Monggo, silakan ditautkan. Prinsip saya: Good things (assuming my blog is a good thing) are meant to be share.

      Tapi, mohon maaf, saya semi-anonim di blog ini, jadi jangan sebut nama lengkap ya :D… pakenya MartosC, [Gm] atau Gm saja…

  4. Love the tone on these ones.

    Now excuse me while I go get some ramen…

    In the US, Vietnamese noodles is more popular (available) than ramen. It’s usually about $6 for a medium size bowl. A bit cheaper than in Japan.

    • Thanks, Jenn.
      Hmmm… interesting. I seldom see Vietnamese restaurant here… I’m sure there are a lot of them, but Thai food is definitely more popular. Anyway, when I do find a Vietnamese Restaurant, I will check on the noodles (if there’s no pork in it) :D…

  5. As far as I know the broth for Vietnamese noodle is not pork – usually oxtail. And the meat that comes with it is always beef. So yeah check it out. I think it’s tastier than ramen, but also because it fits well with hot sauce, which I like :).

    • Got it. Just check with wife, and she said there’s one Vietnamese place quite near to her workplace. Will check it out in the near future.
      If you like spicy food, I would assume you have tried Korean food. If you haven’t, you should :D.

  6. Hmm… Japanese angkringan :D

    January 11, 2012 at 00:10

    • Yeah, sort of :D…

  7. Have tried all kinds of asian food. Favorite is still Pho (vietnamese noodle) and sushi. I know.. I need to go to Japan… Though one Japanese restaurant here said that thinking sushi fish comes from Japan is a misconception – most comes from Hawaii/Alaska.

    Now of course I’m craving Korean. Kim chi….. slurp.

    • Have you tried Indonesian food? How do you like it?
      Perhaps the Japanese restaurant was referring to sushi fish in US?
      Regardless, other than the raw fishes, one important factor of sushi is how you choose and cut the fish, no? I think it will need years of experience to really know these things.

      Hope you find a good Korean restaurant :D…
