After spending big bucks buying a bulky DSLR - 650D, the first thing to do would be to try out one of the things that London Bear and I do most often - recording food and cuisines. It requires time for every camera and their owners to get to know each other. If the lighting is ideal, then everything becomes so much easier. If the lighting is inconstant, and you happen to be shooting moving objects, then it definitely takes more practice. So, in order to get used to this new toy, I must take all the chances I have to get used to it as quickly as I could. The family decided to dine at this Japanese restaurant, recommended by my mother's colleagues. The price was reasonable, and since it had been recommended, how bad could it be? Anyway, I always order the same kinds of dishes, so it was even easier to tell which restaurant does a better job at what.
The first dish served was the salad that came with the set meal we ordered.
This was the sashimi for the combo set.
This fried tofu looks just like its name - simple and normal. But it has a very pleasant taste.
And voila! This was the extra plate of sashimi we ordered.
I know I messed up a bit on this one... This temaki must be eaten as soon as it's been set on the table!
Salmon fried rice! Very savory!
Grilled mackerel. I love any kind of fish, fried or grilled, sprinkled with lemon! I like how they're very generous with that piece of lemon - I didn't even have to ask for more.
Grilled sanma fish - also very good. Very different from the mackerel!
Miso soup that came with the set.
Also came with the set - chawanmushi (steamed egg).
我最喜歡的日本湯 — 土瓶蒸！（實在不太喜歡味增）
My all-time favourite soup (not a fan of miso) - doubinmushi (teapot soup).
Fruit also came with the set.
Althogh this looks like coffee, it's actually plum juice.
It was a pleasant meal. The restaurant was decently clean, and the service was also adequate. A nice place for small gathering and family meals!
