FRIDAY—Met up with Sayoko (L), her son Yu, and her friend Junko (R) for lunch in Shibuya.

Sayoko and Junko

Meet Yu Hokazono.

Yu Hokazono

Sayoko always takes me to the most unexpected places with the best food.

Galali

This is Galali, a little two-story restaurant with a charming, rustic design using recycled wood.
This is downstairs

Check out the greens called mizuna (do we have this in Manila?)

Within the tolerable limit some hot spots were detected before at Setagaya but it was because of the Radium inside the bottle

Mizuna…well yes we do have it in Manila. My friend grows this in his farm in Tagaytay. It looks like a long-stemmed lettuce with variegated, holly-like leaves. You can eat it raw coz its less aromatic than arugula. You can ask the organic farms in Tagaytay for mizuna on your next visit 😉

Looking at food at 2:30 am is a bad idea. 🙂

I’ve learned to like  and appreciate the “small dishes” concept of Japanese, Korean and Chinese. Instead of huge plates of side dishes, viands and rice, everything is in a small plate or bowl and you just get what probably fits in your own bowl/dish (or more, if you’re really that hungry). Controlled portions = control. 🙂
