Intelligentsia Coffee, Millenium Park Chicago

It was day 2 in Chicago, our first morning i.e breakfast. We went to the nearest Intelligentsia Coffee for breakfast. They did not really have breakfast selections that we wanted so we simply tried their pastry and their cappuccino.

Nakamura Tokichi, Kyoto

I was looking for some matcha dessert and came across this place. We had it in the afternoon after a trip on the other side of town and it was really refreshing. It's a great place to go in Kyoto.

Au Cheval, Chicago

In Chicago, in September and we were introduced to a delicious burger place and we had it for brunch one Sunday morning.

Edogawa Unagi, Kyoto

This was one of the many restaurants that we went to when we were in Kyoto. It's a place that specializes in unagi (eel), but we also had salmon sashimi and plum wine to go with the meal.

This post is way overdue, since i drafted it anyway, I tried to finish up. We went to Nara by train. We were planning to walk around, find some deer, take pictures and have some good food. Of course, trying to have a great time there too.  

We walked along to a couple of temples and had lunch nearby. Here are some pictures we took:

Lunch at Lokkee

We had lunch with these loved ones and family members. 😉 We enjoyed the food although we did not particularly like where we were seated. The fried rice with crab meat was particularly delicious.

Ramen Todai

We took train to Kyoto from Osaka, to stay there and enjoy what Kyoto had, for a few days. Precisely what we did, after arriving and checking in into our hotel in Kyoto, was looking for great ramen for lunch. Ramen Kyoto street was just steps away from where we were, right at the Kyoto station, up on the 10th floor. There are eight ramen shops from various places in Japan and we had to pick one.

This restaurant is from Tokushima prefecture on Shikoku island. They serve ramen that I never had before, so I was really curious in trying them for the first time. We also ordered a plate of gyoza.We simply love them. More about this place is here

Sushizanmai, Osaka, Lunch

This was the lunch that we had when we got back to Osaka. We knew ahead of time that we were going to have sushi from the same restaurant chain we love in Tsukiji, Tokyo. They were delicious and very satisfying.
