Tsukiya Ramen

I have been to this ramen shop just after a few days of settling down in Saitama University. The first bite onto the noodles made me fell in love with it! So, I went back several times for more. During one of the visits, I ordered the Tokusen Tsukiya Ramen with more goodies.

The bowl of ramen looked exactly the same as in the illustration.

On another visit, I ordered the Tsukemen, which was cold noodles with a bowl of dip.

A few minutes later...

I have asked the people around here whether this shop has a branch in downtown Tokyo. Unfortunately, it has only a branch near another small city. So, if you want to have taste of the ramen here, you'll need to travel for one hour from Tokyo.

Wordless Wednesday – Dorayaki

Dorayaki (銅鑼燒) is a type of Japanese confection with sweet red bean paste sandwiched in between two round pancakes. It is the favourite snack of Doraemon. Since I like it as much as Doraemon does, I think it is appropriate for me to introduce this Japanese snack to you.

The feeling of holding one in your hand is just fantastic! The bulging pancakes seem like exploding with the fillings spilling out.

Nowadays, there are more flavours of fillings to choose from, e.g., green tea and fresh cream. However, the traditional red bean paste is still the best!

This is the last part of the whole series that on my South Africa trip in 2005. I hope you have enjoyed looking at my pics.

Do all these batik paintings look familiar to you?

These are batik cloths with South African motifs.

If you do not fancy batik, how about some African masks for you?

Or maybe you wanna have a drum or two?

A very nicely painted Mini!

Do you need a Red Bull after long hours?

Time to have a Czech beer!
