Nice Bars in Shinjuku(Tokyo)   Leave a comment

Since one of our members will be making a trip to Tokyo again this week, here is an introduction to 2 interesting spots in Shinjuku, the area in Tokyo which never sleeps. ๐Ÿ˜„

Located in the Golden Gai(ๆ–ฐๅฎฟใ‚ดใƒผใƒซใƒ‡ใƒณ่ก—, “่ก—” is Japanese for “streets”), this area boasts the most number of bars and pubs clumped together.

Why this place, you may ask.

It is a simple bar which seats about 8+ people comfortably, but the master knows his stuff, and can put together any drinks to suit your whim and tastes.

Also, this place has also been featured in many famous Japanese magazines such as “Men’s Ex”, “Otona no Shumatsu”, and even in the famous travel mook, “Shinjuku Walker”!

 

Alright, so the above establishment may not be up your alley if you are looking for more otaku-ish places.

In that case, how about:

 

Sub-culture Cafรฉ and Bar, New Type Shinjuku

If you are into the sub-culture scene, this place will be perfect for you!

Besides the great food and drinks, which may have otaku origins, this place also holds events on certain days.

For example, the all night karaoke session from Friday night all the way to early Saturday morning,

or even the table-top game and Monster Hunter game sessions on Saturdays!

Kindly refer to the main page above for the latest updates regarding events.

 

The above 2 places can handle conversations in English(simple ones anyway…), so do not worry about communication problems and give them a try! ^_^b

Best Spaghetti Restaurant in Tokyo, Moses!   Leave a comment

It looks like the latest Gundam series is picking up steam with the latest episode 3 just released today, and we have One Punch Man for comedy relief this season, so it probably won’t get boring anytime soon. Oh, let’s not forget about Kamen Rider Ghost and the upcoming Macross Delta press release coming up on the 29th of this month.

 

But enough of the otaku chat, as mentioned in the title of this post, we will be looking at another topic today. Since we have a member who has lived in Tokyo for the past 5 years, let’s take a look at some nice food places in Tokyo!

 

According to our sources, it seems that a quite a few people have already tried out this place too, so please feel free to comment if you have a recommendation from this restaurant too! ๐Ÿ˜„

You can find a sample of the menu here:ย http://pasta-moses.com/store/menu.html

This place features the traditional Italian pastas, as well as the Japanese style pastas for the courageous diners. (Seriously, some of the Japanese pastas contain fish roe, natto or sea urchin, so be prepared…)

 

That said, the most sought after item there should be the Salmon Cream Fettuccine Pasta, as it tends to sell out once the sauce is finished for the day. Do check with the chef on the availability before placing your orders. a good suggestion of to go for dinner there, as the best set meal (set C) is only available at dinner. It includes soup, salad, drink and dessert for less than 2000 yen!

 

We are not sure if any English menu is available on site, so those going may like to take note of the following items when visiting:

ใ†ใซ (uni) – sea urchin

ๆ˜Žๅคชๅญใ€ใŸใ‚‰ใ“ (mentaiko, tarako) – fish roe

ใ—ใ‚ใ˜ (shimeji) – mushroom, long variety

ใ‚ใ•ใ‚Š (asari) – clams

็ด่ฑ† (natto) – fermented beans, normally comes coated in a sticky residue

 

That should cover this restaurant for the time being, but do let us know if there is any food you would like us to cover in the future non-otaku related posts! ^_^b

Strong Zero Commercial   Leave a comment

Really wanted to highlight this commercial on an alchoholic beverage since I saw it on Japan TV some time back.

Just found the link on youtube, so go ahead and enjoy!

I know I got a good laugh out of it ๐Ÿ˜„

And the short version:

Chocolate…?!   Leave a comment

Found this in the drinks section of a nearby combini.

Seriously, the chocolate for your valentine is getting out of hand… a drink now?!

Well, to tell you the truth… tasted kinda like liquid cheese cake ๐Ÿ˜„

It’s still good, reminds me of the pancake milk I always drink. Which of course, tasted like liquid pancakes…

Oh, and took this photo last night during the freak snow storm:

Was still snowing when I took the photo, so I really couldn’t stop the shaking of the umbrella… makes for an interesting photo, doesn’t it?
