Today we’re sharing one of our favourite places with you. It’s not a fancy pants place like Saito. Actually, it’s pretty much on the opposite end of the spectrum. It’s super cheap and anyone can get into it. It’s called Sukiya, and it’s great comfort food. It’s our go-to place whenever we have jet lag, and if you’re coming to Japan, you should definitely give it a shot.
This is the part of the blog post where we talk a bit more about the food, but there isn’t really much to say. Rice. Beef and onions. That’s it. You can go for pork and onions instead if you’d like, but I never tried it. You can add other toppings as well. I got the three cheese and tabasco, but I’ve also seen kimchi. I’ve seen Mayo. Oh! There are also times we’ve gone when we didn’t get beef, but minced tuna and egg yolk, and that was totally great. Kind of like our breakfast bowls we make at home. Actually now that I think about it I realize there’s a lot more to say. There are tons of options on the menu. I just know what I like so I stick to it.
Otherwise I’m kinda a small bit upset after filming this video. This was the first video we shot in a while, and I didn’t really feel my full silly self. How do I know? Because when I first saw Sukiya, I told Martina that it’s actually abbreviated from its older name: Sukiya Balls. And they had a discount shop called Sukiya Off. It’s not that great of a joke when I write it out, now that I look it over. The verbal delivery is critical. Ah. I’ll make sure not to miss out on my lame jokes in the future.
But hey, it feels good making videos again! We’ve been out for a while doing boring stuff for January, and we’re still not done (tomorrow I’m trying to find out how to get my Polish Citizenship), but we’ve got more videos filmed and almost ready to publish. Woot! And though we kind of joked at this not being a fancy pants video, we’re filming another fancy pants video over the weekend. We’re filming with another Iron Chef! It’s gonna be great. Stay tuned :D
