Yoshinoya dinner for ¥ 490. I got some combo meal: Rice, Miso soup, beef, salmon and some side. The beef was perfectly tender, the salmon was just so-so. There is something about the Japanese rice that somewhat makes the meal perfect. The drink is a complimentary cold green tea. You can order separate beverages if you want.
The store layout is very functional. The store has a somewhat depressing atmosphere like the vending machine restaurants in Tokyo. You go there to eat.
|You don't really wanna hang out here|
McDo meals are relatively pricey (compared to the prices in Manila of course). But I like their fries better. I had two large fries for my meal. A fastfood meal is not complete without fries.
Mos Burger. Mos Burger is a popular burger fastfood chain that originated in Japan. Maybe something like their vesion of Jollibee? I didn’t really feel the Japanese-touch in the burgers. Ask for the English menu when you order. A burger is a nice break from all the rice combos.
My dinner burger meal for ¥ 780.
|The burger was juicy, but forgettable|
Sukiya. A contender of Yoshinoya. I had a bowl of cheese Sukiya for just ¥380. Apologies for the lousy pic below. The camera wasalready broken during this time. Kahit malungkot, kelangan kumain. I was still quite depressed over my camera, I only ordered the smallest bowl. The picture quality is bad, but that is one freakin’ good bowl of gyudon. I liked their beef much better than Yoshinoya. Take a bowl of gyudon over a Japanese burger. Mas sulit!
Coco Curry Ichiban. Another famous Japanese fastfood chain that specializes in curry. I am not a fan of curry, I don’t really like the...smell of its spices. But this one is pretty good. Their sauce is delicious but not overpowering. Got some chicken curry with a yogurt shake for ¥830.
Around the Streets
Bought Kintsuba, a local dessert, while roaming around the picturesque streets of Kyoto.
Enjoy sampling the various rice cakes. I had two pieces while roaming around in Kyoto.
Bring enough mineral water around. But don’t fret, there are reliable vending machines. Fully stocked and working.
Fish-like desserts in Fushimi Inari: JPY 400. I wasn’t really hungry but the scent was so enticing, and the shape sparkled my interest.
There are cornflakes and cream inside.
Ramen somewhere in Arashiyama ¥450.
Loads of sashimi sold in the grocery.
I found these sausages. Quite cheap!
Choco banana shake from Gojo Guesthouse Cafe. I used the coupon. Drank the yummy drink while sharing my adventure with my new friend-roomate.
Bento Box in Inagiku Shangrila Makati. I wasn’t able to finish the whole thing.
I had dinner at the mall. Just picked out some resto offering bento boxes. I just pointed to what the girl next to me was eating.¥1,250. Everything was delicious! Walang patapon!
