OK here are some foodie pix from all the local places we went to after coming home from Tokyo-Osaka 2016.
Yakimono from Shinn. Classic izakaya: grilled items, kitchen items, sushi items. Solid favorite.
Yaki Yaki Miwa on South King. Solid Osaka-style okonomi and other teppen goodies. Always get the tako.
Sushi Izakaya Gaku: our gold standard. Sushi and grilled oysters. Also a small ohitashi dish which I've become really fond of.
And of course the sushi at Gaku is peerless...
A typical Friday evening at Kona Kai Sushi. The sushi round comes at the end of the meal -- who needs ice cream?
And here are some items from Sushi Murayama, the new kid on the block nearby HMSA/Wal-Mart. Still feeling our way around this place. The sushi is excellent!
