You’ve Got a Lovely Way with Words, Must Be the Way You See the World

Days of Summer: 3

Japanese food, one of the good things in life.

A steaming hot bowl of miso soup with lots of assorted sushi, salmon sashimi and soft-shell crab tempura, and some custard dorayaki to top it all off makes for a delicious Sunday dinner with J somewhere on Hanover Street amongst calligraphy’d paper lanterns, cherry blossom-motif sauce plates and gold-tipped chopsticks.

I’m an epicurean of sorts, and Japanese food has always been an absolute favourite of mine since I was a little girl, which brings me back to the time when my parents would bring me to this quaint Japanese restaurant in KL on weekends called Moritomo: it introduced me to tatami rooms with shoji sliding doors, kneeling barefeet for dinner and the wonders of cold soba with nori seaweed, sweetened soy sauce and a raw quail egg on a bamboo tray called zaru. I loved it all and I’ve been hooked ever since, so it comes as no surprise I tend to look for Japanese food wherever I go, regardless of where I am.

..and I know I’m definitely going to load up on a whole lot it when I’m back in KL!

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours these days, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s lovely worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers
    made good content as you probably did, the web can be much more
    useful than ever before.
