Rinka (凛火)

Japanese do love social dinners and they do get pretty rowdy when they are seated together with a few drinks down their stomach. So different to their subdued working culture. Since I came, I had joined in a few social dinners (or Nomikai in Japanese) Usually held in a izakaya with a set course and drink all you can within specific time limits.

Sashimi, every one have only once slice of each kind.


Baby pickled squids.

Prawn salad, I love that the salads are also so fresh and crunchy! Yes crunchy as the vegetables are really fresh.

By this time, we were really fun. Grilled chicken, pork and fish and vegetables on hot rocks.

Those thin slices are deep fried Burdocks which I never knew can be made this way. Paired wih stuffed peppers.

Seared beef nigiri, I much prefer my nigiri to be made of fish instead.

Dessert looks tiny in portion if compared to the rest of the food. I feel so stuffed!
