You gotta have Indian in Japan!

Happy Saturday and a week before Christmas! Hope y’all are enjoying the holiday season! Make the best of it; it’s flying by so fast!

I’ve got more food to share while on my trip to Japan. We had an array of diverse food while we were there. I love that Japan is so full of diversity when it comes to food. On my last trip in April 2015, I saw so many Indian places, I really wanted to try. I knew that I had to do that on my next trip. …And that’s what my auntie, her friend, and I did! We have about three Indian places on O’ahu. I’m glad we have this wonderful ethnic food. It’s so good!

We came across this Indian curry house in Ikebukuro. The dishes were so reasonable (all curry bowls were Β₯680, which is about $5.76 USD). Pretty awesome, right? We had to try it! The restaurant was a small-type dinner, that only fit eight people. Talk about cramped! Thankfully when we got there, it wasn’t crowded just yet. Phew!

I ordered the mutton (aka lamb) masala curry bowl, turmeric rice, and garlic naan bread. There were only two chefs running the entire place. When we were first there, there were a couple other people seated with us, and only one chef was cooking all the dishes. What amazed me is that he made the naan breads fresh. It didn’t take very long to cook. It was an entertaining experience because it was like we were watching a cooking show while we waited for our food and while we were eating.

Throwback Thursday- UFoodGrill?

Happy #tbt!!

Back in 2014, my auntie and I traveled with our travel crew to South America to embark on a cruise that started in Santiago (Valparaiso), Chile. We had a couple of layovers across the Continental US before arriving to our final destination- Chile. Our first stop after departing Honolulu was Salt Lake City, Utah. We had some time to chill at the airport before departing to Atlanta, Georgia. We arrived in Salt Lake in the early morning, so not a lot of places were open to grab a bite. However, UFood Grill was and the food looked awesome!
