Mikimoto Dessert Lounge

Mikimoto Lounge After some (window) shopping in Ginza, we stopped by Mikimoto Lounge for a fun dessert sampling. Ginza is THE mecca of high end shopping and was fun to walk through. Still, I’m not a fan of walking without a purchase purpose and wanted a sweet pick me up. Have you heard of Mikimoto? I […]

New York Botanical Garden: Orchid Evenings

Last weekend, I went back upstate to the Bronx to visit the New York Botanical Garden for Orchid Evenings. We headed there at the perfect time, as it was still light enough in the conservatory to watch the sun set and take some different shots from when I last went to the Orchid Key West exhibit during mid […]

[…] I grew up hearing about my mother’s forced childhood photo shoots on the stone lions at the Brooklyn Botanic, sitting on the hot stone in the heat waiting for my grandfather’s manual camera to slowly capture the perfect frame. By that point, everyone else in the picture was squinting and irritated but my mom’s smile was a ray of sunshine. I like the Brooklyn Botantic because it’s conveniently right around the corner from the Museum and train station and has a great variety of trees and plants in bloom. In the spring there are the cherry blossoms, in the summer the orchids, and currently in the winter season, there’s an Isamu Noguchi sculpture exhibit set in the Japanese garden. If you like gardens, also check out the Bronx Botanical, which is larger but also a bit a ways outside of the city. They also have a gorgeous annual orchid exhibit and cocktail-themed Orchid Evenings. […]

Eat More Greens

While in Tokyo, we stopped by Eat More Greens for a vegetarian meal. I can’t remember why we chose this restaurant specifically, since I’m by no means vegetarian, but the Azabu-Juban spot draws a pretty varied crowd and actually felt similar to a LES joint. They even had a hanging print of my friend’s old […]

Japanese Tonkatsu

I’m not sure how we stumbled upon this place but when we saw that the restaurant was dedicated to tonkatsu, or Japanese pork cutlet, we immediately sat down, eager to try this Japanese staple. Surprisingly, a lot of our lunchtime hits ended up being restaurants on the top floors of malls, which threw me for a […]

That’s in a mall?! I had no idea until I read the bottom of your post. Maybe I would go to more malls in the US if the food tasted even half as good as yours looks.

SherApril 18, 2014 - 5:06 pm

right? i loved how unique each of the malls in Japan were and was so surprised by the food options!

JaniceApril 19, 2014 - 6:10 am

The tonkatsu we had in Kyoto was delicious and this was at a place that was part of a chain in a mall as well. I just love how light they make the batter which makes it feel as if it’s less greasy :P.
