What's up? Long time no food blog. I've been wasting all my time doing calligraphy. Good sushi's been hard to find since coming back from Tokyo. I'm all for the dodgy sushi rolls and take away joints, but sometimes you just need something better and tastier. Masuya Suisan AKA Sushi of Masuya is definitely up there and may well be our new go-to joint! [caption id="attachme...

Japan 2016: Day 10 (A Moonie evening)

Chen accidentally got me coffee when I asked for chocolate, so we ended up having to pull out the katakana al...

Japan 2016: Day 7 (Feeling the pain)

I'm really liking this waking up early business. Oh, did I mention how utterly amazing sleeping on an actual bed is? Back in Tokyo we sleep on the floor...and I mean an actual floor, not tatami mats, but a thin yoga mat sitting on top of some floorboards. Wood is hard. I discovered yesterday I was deathly allergic to the NATIO sunscreen on my face, so I had to live without suns...
