I went to this restaurant called Kin No Taki about 2 days ago with my student. This was my first time visiting this place. The Place is quite cozy and they have so many kind of menu…unfortunately, there’s no sushi. We visited this restaurant because I wanted to write something for my Hello Japan Challenge.
Too much menu cost us time to think . They have many kind of Ramen…I always enjoy ramen because of its special taste. Unlike any other noodle I have eaten, Ramen has different taste that into my liking. In the end I chose Spicy Sea Food Ramen.
It came in a big bowl *yeaa the bigger the better*…it looked delicious and the smell was great. The combination of this Ramen was Wakamazu, shrimp, crab, squid, sea weed and egg. The chili was all over the egg. Too bad it wasn’t as spicy as it said in the menu, I had to put extra chili powder to make it more spicy. But overall, I like it

I’m not a good cuisine writer…so this is all that I can say about Spicy Sea Food Ramen.
My student chose Chicken Katsu don because she wanted to eat something with rice. I can’t say much about it coz I didn’t taste it at all.

This is something that happened a month ago…because it happened in October I can’t put it in this month challenge…BUT it is more interesting than my writing on Ramen (well, at least in my opinion).
Last month was the 1st I tasted Kare Raisu (curry Rice) and my 1st impression was ‘It taste so much like Padang sate!!’ Padang is the capital of West Sumatra (one of Indonesian island). The color of Kare is yellowish like Padang sate and the taste is almost exactly alike…the different is the meat in kare is mixed with the yellow sauce while in Padang sate the sauce is poured onto the meat.
This moment (of eating Kare raisu) becomes an unforgettable moment because of happened later on a stupid and silly twitting with my student >> here
Favorite Japanese Cuisine
My favorite Japanese cuisine are sushi…a bit difficult to find and mostly very expensive ; and Takoyaki. I usually eat Takoyaki in a Japanese Matsuri. Jakarta (the capital city of Indonesia) often held such event and I always find time to come to all big Matsuri.
