Chickens on sticks (美味しい焼き鳥-つくね)

No comments

Sometimes (or most of the time) romantic relationships don’t go as one hopes it should. Fate plays everybody on the palm of her hands and sometimes, you just have to go under her knife until you learn, be marked, and go out stronger than before.

恋愛関係はいつもよくなるわけじゃない。運命はみんなを遊んで、運命により経験を積めて、強くなることが多いだろう。

As much as this post is about food, the place had a very special association with romance, heartbreak, letting go and moving on.

この記事は料理のことだが、個人的にこの場所は恋愛関係、辛い別れ、進歩に繋がっていることもある。

It was a place I was brought by a past love for my birthday. A place where we had dinner after a stormy long distance relationship. And it was a place where we finally came into terms and closed the door behind. While the association of this place was strong in my emotional journey, food here was something that can deluge whatever emotions you’re having like a tidal wave to sweep you into an ecstatic gastronomical trance.

この店で誕生日を祝った。遠距離恋愛中ここで食事をした。そして別れた後、ここで再会して苦い過去を締めた。感情の冒険に関係があるにも関わらず料理は美味しいすぎて津波のように美味しさの昏睡に流されるかも。w

I introduce Sumiyaki 燈 (Akari). それでは写真ですみやき燈を紹介する。

Shiso and raw meat tartare. Yes, Japan is one of the places you can eat raw chicken (only at specialized restaurants such as this as they use a unique way of evisceration that prevents the rupture of contaminating intestines). Believe me, raw chicken meat is amazing in flavor! 鶏肉と紫蘇タルタル。
