EBISU: Yaro Ramen... so super empty on a Saturday night. Oh my... but super close from the station!

Passed by here after a night of being out too long... so just pics as I don't quite remember what kind of noodles they used or the flavor of the soup. Sorry!  Will update if I ever go back again.

It was such a slow night the staff was waiting outside for customers.

YUTENJI: M's Grill and Bar for a stunningly rare HUGE Japanese crab direct from Tsukiji! Friendly Chef!

I occasionally attend a business dinner with one of our clients who is honestly knows alot of amazing delicious restaurants and tonight was no exception.

Soooo super melty tuna sourced from Totori-Prefecture... I think it was the tuna cheek area.

Tiny seasonal corn

Egg plant with miso dipping seasoning

So many seasonal vegetables... asparagus.

Grilled tasty melty oysters... Yum!

Ratatouille with Gorgonzola cheese chips.

Special dipping flavored soup for the crab

And here it is!  The chef purchased this massive crab at Tsukiji in the morning and the Tsukiji guys said they never saw such a hug crab before.  

The super friendly chef in the background first brought out boiled crab then the remaining crab was grilled.  

Did you know Japanese sourced crab has 6 horns on its head?

Tomatoe and Uni stewed for 2 days then cream is added to this stunning pasta.
YUUMMM!!!  Also had small cuts of toast to dip into. YUMMM!!!

Closed with vanilla ice cream with several toppings... I got the chocolate wafer topping.

SPOT ON this is one amazing little restaurant with 4 counter seats (lone diners welcome) and 2 tables in the back.  With every bite I simply closed my eyes because it was just soooooo good.  If you ever need a little private cozy spot this is for you... great for a birthday with close friends.

Of course I had to take the Huge crab head home.... pic vs my iPhone 6.

YOKOZE: Miso Potato Sakura Restaurant.... nice gyoza and potato on a stick. The Hotaru "Firefly" Festival in Chichibu

2 hours away from Tokyo and finally arrived at Yokoze for the Chichibu Hotaru Lantern Festival.

Time for a little local food... miso potato

Big glass of Nihonshu only 400yen and bottled beer for 500yen

You can get a beer, gyoza and potato set for 1,100 yen. 
Its about 10% more if you order it separately.

Lots of veggies inside.

Unfortunately it was such a cool evening that the little fireflies didn't appear.
