Bubby’s/ バビーズ

Apparently a New York classic, Bubby’s is your one-stop-shop for your American food cravings.  What drew me in was the blue cheese burger, but they have everything from house-made lemonade, to macaroni and cheese, key-lime pie, banana split, nachos, steak, and even breakfast food for a couple hours like eggs benedict and smoked salmon bagels. After eating just the blue cheese burger, I thought I would eat here all the time if it weren’t as expensive as it is.  Prices enough for pause, a bit above average.  But one of my best meals in recent memory.

本格的なハンバーガーのレストラン。
お肉の焼き具合が選べたりチーズもゴルコンゾーラ等日本ではない感じでした。
ハンバーガーの固定観念でいったらちょっと高めの値段設定ですが納得できる味でした。
ケーキも本格的アメリカンなものが味わえて良いです🙆‍♂️

とんかつ 和幸 横浜ポルタ店/ Tonkatsu Wakou

IMG_5497This is the Yokohama station branch of a tonkatsu chain restaurant, I think the same chain I get bentos from sometimes at the supermarket.  This branch seems busy but probably never too much of a wait.  It’s really good; I only hesitate because most tonkatsu places are decent, and I wouldn’t come here from Tokyo or Yokosuka just to eat here.  There were several foreigners when we went, and while I don’t remember an English menu it’s a pretty simple menu with pictures and such.

We went to this restaurant in Yokohama China Town after hearing from one of Nodoka’s acquaintances that the gyoza here is good.  It was a Friday night and pretty busy, but we didn’t have to wait.  There were a couple other foreigner + Japanese parties.  I felt like it was a fairly warm, friendly place, although we did feel a bit pressured to order quickly.  The huge menu didn’t make that too easy, although we knew what we wanted.  The average price on the menu is around 1600 yen, but the gyoza that we came for was about 800 yen.  We tried both fried and boiled gyoza, had some fried rice, and wanted one more dish so we chose the spring rolls.  Sorry we don’t have pictures of the gyoza, since this was when we first started out ^^’  Anyway, it was good.  It was hard to give it a higher rating with so many dishes not tried, but everything was seemingly well prepared, and the plates were cute.  If you’re in China Town and not too particular about what to eat give it a try.

美味しい物大好きな私の知り合いが餃子が美味しいと言っていた横浜中華街にあるお店。

焼き餃子と水餃子と春巻きを注文しました。

確かに美味しい!

けど餃子にしては値段が少し高めだった気がします。。。

今回は餃子目当てだった為、次回は餃子以外の物も食べてみたい^^

This kaiten-sushi (conveyor belt sushi) place has lines even on weekdays, and for good reason.  Partly because it’s in a busy department store inside Yokohama station, and partly because of it’s yummy yummy sushi.  When we tried to go on a weekend afternoon, the line was split in two as it went around a corner.  We thought the second half was the line for another restaurant until someone started grumbling about us skipping the line.  We went somewhere else ><  It’s all counter seats, no tables.  We have been a few times, and I have never had any sushi here that tasted like it was just thawed from the freezer.  I haven’t seen another foreigner there, and I’m not sure there is any English, but it’s kaiten-sushi, and has tablets from which you can order.  Between the two of us the first time it was about 2300 yen for about 13 or 14 plates.  Maybe on the more expensive side if you eat a lot, but for a kaiten-sushi place it’s worth it 😛
