I arrived safely in Tokyo, and although exhausted from lack of sleep and the long flight, I’m delighted to be here.
We went to Inakaya in Roppongi, and it didn’t disappoint. It’s a Robata Yaki restaurant, which basically means they cook fresh ingredients on a grill in front of you and do a lot of shouting (adds a lively vibe).
We were served an insane amount of courses, including grilled shitake mushrooms, grilled fish, a bit of sushi, grilled asparagus, more grilled fish, etc. etc.
For those of you in New York, you can get a taste at home – Inakaya opened a branch last year at 620 8th Ave (on the ground floor of the New York Times building).
I’m tired, stuffed and off to bed early. It’s going to be a long day tomorrow, with lots more eating. Poor me.
