Amazing Chai Tea and Hamburgers In Kanagawa

On the heels of eating Singapore food for the first time with a friend, I went with another friend “Queen M” to one of the areas I used to live around in Kanagawa.  I used to live there, but I had no idea on all the great food places I was missing out on.

I can’t even remember why I was angry.   Continue reading “Letting Go”

The Yokohama Ramen Museum

You’ve heard of ramen, right?

I prefer shio (salt) ramen.

One of my husband’s favorite places is The Ramen Museum in Yokohama.
