Hanakazu ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

It's all Noel's fault.

Wagyu sashimi has been on my mind all day and all night, every hour, every minute, every second, every millisecond… you get the point.

I run to Hanakazu to keep me from going insane.

Complimentary fried tuna appetizer

More complimentary appies: beef jerky, baby squid, picked cucumber



We order all sorts of food - salad, deep fried dishes, fried rice, ramen...

Torikawa Salad
I got excited when I read chicken skin salad. I imagined the skin to be the fried crispy kind.
Turns out to be all soft and soggy.

Japanese Fried Oysters
We wanted to have these huge babies raw, but since they are not so fresh anymore, the chef 
suggests we have them fried. Well, there's no way I'm saying no to that!

Oyster innards
I find the batter a bit too thick, but love the plump and juicy filling exploding with the taste of the sea

Tonkatsu Japan - tender and crispy

I love the Beef Yakimeshi. So tasty and beefy!

The yakimeshi also comes with a bowl of soup

The Tonkotsu Ramen, however, is a huge disappointment. The noodles are springy enough
but the soup tastes instant.



The highlight of our meal at Hanakazu is...

(Drum roll, please!)

Toro. I die. 



Everything is as fresh and pristine as can be.

I'm so happy I want to cry.
