Tuna Auction @ Tsukiji Fish Market

  Today is a very exciting day as I’m finally getting around to showing pictures from my week and a half long trip around Japan…from a year and a half ago. I planned pretty much every minute of this trip and was very, very excited to experience the food, shrines, sake and basically every aspect […]

I was so disappointed that there were no auctions when we went over Christmas as it was getting close to New Year! We’re going to have to go back just to see this! We did line up for 3 hours for Sushi Dai… despite getting there at 4am. The things we do for food! Can’t wait to see the rest of your posts about Japan! I just posted one about the amazing tofu we had in Kyoto :)

That looks like an incredible spot to visit. Even though that sounds like PAINfully early wake up call, it definitely seems worth it. You got some great shots that really show the activity of the auction and the warehouse!

Can’t wait to see what else you saw around Japan.

The Ferry Building Marketplace

If you’re interested in doing some shopping while in San Francisco, the Ferry Building Marketplace has a great sample of stalls dedicated to everything from flowers to ceramics, dessert to gourmet cheese and a Blue Bottle coffee spot. I had a lot of fun browsing all the stalls and picked up a ‘tea satchet’ of […]

I loved this market place! We went in July and it was so busy! My favourite was this stand that sold the freshest lavender. The smell was heavenly! :) Love your pictures!

Wooly Pig Cafe

For lunch, I ordered the Wooly Pig sandwhich from The Wooly Pig cafe and it was delicious. Hot, marinated pork belly + crunchy argula + soft bread make for a great bite. I actually stopped by the Wooly Pig cafe after searching for ‘lunch’ spots on Yelp near the map area that I was walking […]

That looks delicious! I’ve never used Yelp for food recommendations when I’m traveling, but that’s a great idea! I usually find places online in advance or stop at the first place I see because I’m starving :)

The Mill

The Mill is a gorgeous coffee shop near San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury district. For one, the space is huge (at least compared to NYC coffee shop standards) and the interior space beautifully decorated with a mix of hipster and wood chic. There’s plenty of seats too (I’m not really a stand at the coffee bar […]
