FRIDAY—Met up with Sayoko (L), her son Yu, and her friend Junko (R) for lunch in Shibuya.
Meet Yu Hokazono.
Sayoko always takes me to the most unexpected places with the best food.
This is Galali, a little two-story restaurant with a charming, rustic design using recycled wood.
This is downstairs
And the view from the 2nd floor, where we were seated.
This is Yu with the manager, Yohji
Specials of the day: I chose beef shabu-shabu
Waiting for food pics
Appetizers, rice, and miso soup came out fast
Then the most tender boiled beef on a bed of greens and dressing, topped with grated radish, sesame seeds and spring onions
Yohji brought out this book when I asked what the greens were called
Check out the greens called mizuna (do we have this in Manila?)
Wish I could eat like this everyday.
Yu ate this
And we’re done.
Seriously, one of the best meals I’ve had. Thank you for lunch!!
