最近、生牡蠣が私の中でブーム。
…ということで、
「肉が食べたい!」という
彼を説き伏せ、
金曜日の夜は新宿三丁目の
oyster bar jackpotへ行きました。

生牡蠣、美味しかった。
色々な調味料があるけど、
やっぱり私は
レモン+ポン酢が一番好き。

私と彼は酒飲みなので、
飲む際にはパスタとかパンは
オーダーしないのだけど、
釜焼きのピザも
美味しそうでした。

最近、三丁目はとても
賑わってるので、
予約なしだと、
席がない事が多いです。
ジャックポットも、注意です。

生牡蠣の後は、
久々にカラオケ行って、
締めに歌舞伎町でお寿司。

気付いたら朝4:00だったから、
二人とも慌てて就寝。

去年の私たちだったら、
慌てもせず、
まだ飲んでたかも。

お酒との付き合い方が、
これでも少しだけ、
大人になった気がします。

明け方に寝たにも関わらず、
朝はちゃんと起きて
ヨガ行きました。

偉い♬

居酒屋めぐり+α

5 Jul

この間も言ったけど、天気のせいで、とても引きこもりがちな私。

でも、ここ何日かは、友達と夜遊び(嘘だけど)してるのよ。

それで、土曜日の夜、

張り切って、早めに家を出たんだけど…

いつものことながら、新宿駅で迷い。むしろ、迷いまくり。

結局、メンバーを待たせることに…。ごめんね。

チェンマイでは、いつもバッグに方位磁石を入れてたんだけど、

東京でも必要かも、私。

それくらい、極度に方向オンチ。

時々、自分でも驚きっていうか、悲しくなったり。

頭の中ですぐに地図を描けるお父さんの遺伝子は、どこへやら。

Two of my friends from Seattle, Midori and Bryan, were in Tokyo

so we all hung out with their friends on Saturday night.

We went to Shinjuku and had dinner at

世界の山ちゃん (Sekai-no Yamachan )

After food, we walked a little and went to

a gay bar called

Advocates .

Oh boy, it was so much fun.

It was raining pretty hard but we were drinking outside with others

and there was a DJ and people from

many other countries.

It took me back to Seattle for a moment.

Since I was away from Japan during the college days,

I actually don’t know that many good places to go for a night-out,

so I was very glad to know about this place.

I hope Tokyo truly becomes a comfortable place for everybody

whether you are gay, bi or straight.

I wonder if any of you know

other good bars to hang out???

Today (Monday) I had dinner with Marina-chan

who has been my best buddy since our kindergarten days.

Here is a little secret of mine…

She had…and still has big round eyes and had a white dog called Jump,

and I was secretly envious of her.

We went to an Izakaya called

井の頭 汁べゑ

(Inokashira Shirubeh)

This is a very cool place to go if you are in Kichijoji area.

All the dishes are delicious (….as far as I know)

and the people are SUPER friendly

and on top of that,  it’s a very budget-friendly place.

I had this beer that was very good

but I forgot the name already…

Ooops, this is what alcohol does to you, kids.

I will make sure to write it down the next time I am there.

Aside from those beer and dessert, we ate pretty healthy

….I think???

A terrific pudding… ❤

The surface of the pudding is burnt after you order,

and that part gets bitter-sweet and crispy.

This photo looks like an alien abduction on a pudding though.

After our stomach got satisfied,

we then wanted to satisfy our shoe-shopping cravings

but pretty much nothing was opened except for UNIQLO

inside the Yodobashi Camera building.

Temptations…

temptations….

temptations…

Tada…!

We bought matching room-wears !!

Yay!!

We are going to look like prisoners!

Just kidding. It’s more like a marine style.

Sleep over party しなきゃねー。
