Located near the high-end shopping district of Roppongi, the rustic-looking Uoshin feels a little out of place. We dropped by this izakaya chain after window-shopping at Roppongi Hills. While there is certainly no shortage of izakayas in Tokyo, this chain is a little different – Uoshin is owned by a seafood wholesaler which gives them access to some great seafood and the dishes are very reasonably priced.
While the summer may be coming to an end, the inaugural Toronto Food & Wine Festival (@TOfoodandwine) is one great reason to look forward to September. Taking place at Evergreen Brick Works from September 18-20th, 2015, this three-day festival will be quite the epicurean event and I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!
Nagi Ramen’s Golden Gai location has got to be one of the tiniest restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. The area is located in Shinjuku, Tokyo and is made up of several narrow alleyways which contains over 200 bars and restaurants. It’s a shockingly large number when you take into consideration how small Golden Gai is – literally a few short blocks.
