foodrepublic The #beijing China @djneilarmstrong #FRtakeover continues. Braised eggplant. Also a dish from the Yunnan province. From Wikipedia -
Yunnan cuisine (simplified Chinese: 云南菜; traditional Chinese: 雲南菜; pinyin: Yúnnán cài) or Dian cuisine (Chinese: 滇菜; pinyin: Diān cài), is an amalgam of the cuisines of the Han Chinese and other ethnic minorities in China. As the province with the largest number of ethnic minority groups, Yunnan cuisine is vastly varied, and it is difficult to make generalisations. Many Yunnan dishes are quite spicy, and mushrooms are featured prominently. Another important characteristic of Yunnan cuisine is the wide use of flowers as food.

In this one I tasted some five spice within the sauce that reminded me of 'oyster sauce' that you can find in the Asian section of your local grocery back in the states.
For my vegetarians and general #foodies search this one out in China. #DJNeilArmstrongxFR #food #foodporn #pommedesgarcons #leavingdishes #eggplant #china

foodrepublic The @djneilarmstrong #FRtakeover continues in Hong Kong, and just like the rest of the world, it's never too early for dessert, especially this one. NUTS & BEER - multi nut toffee tart with Chimay beer ice cream, coffee and black coffee syrup. Not too shabby #hongkong #hk #djneilarmstrong #DJNeilArmstrongxFR #food #foodporn #pommedesgarcons #leavingdishes #snack #dessert 3d

foodrepublic Final #japan @djneilarmstrong #FRtakeover, and why not finish with the most famous cuisine from the land of the rising sun, sushi.
It's true, you can get sushi almost anywhere in japan. Sometimes its quick and easy - you can get it delivered via robotic conveyor belt in large quantities for cheap like in my very first post. Or it can be a memorable eating experience packed into a single bite.
Pictured above is the latter. I think this would be called "Ama Ebi", or sweet shrimp, with shrimp roe. underneath is a touch of wasabe with rice already flavored with soy sauce by a technique that doesn't leave the rice soggy and broken down. if you want to get traditional, you can put away the chopsticks and just eat with your hands.

Sushi is all about the ingredients - the freshness, the texture -  and its not easy to import the ingredients here anywhere else, so if you want to eat something like this you're going to have to pack your passport and come over to this side of the world. Sushi is simple. No california rolls here. No spider rolls covered in sauce. Just the taste of the fish. That is good sushi here.

I had the opportunity to eat this from a private chef tasting in tokyo, set up by some local foodies so i couldn't tell you where this is. I guess you guys are gonna have to do a little work to find this gem... hint, it won't be at the local robot sushi spot in shibuya ;) happy searching fellow #foodies.

foodrepublic The @djneilarmstrong #frtakeover finds its last day in #tokyo #japan, as we are about to hit Hong Kong again. So much food to post, but there seems to be a lot of burger fans here, so I decided I'd leave you with the mother of all of them, the hungry heaven special from, HUNGRY HEAVEN. they only serve burgers during lunch hours, so make sure to drop everything between 11 and 3 and get this.
Lettuce, tomato, onion, relish, mustard, bacon, fried egg, grilled pineapple, cheddar, mozzarella, mayo, heaven sauce and a double patty

Yes, I ate the whole thing.

foodrepublic Another great meal to share on the #frtakeover. @djneilarmstrong in #Yokohama Japan, and above Is the BEST tasting steak I remember having the opportunity to eat in my whole life. Real deal waygu beef, cooked over a coal fired grill til medium rare, simply dipped in a ponzu sauce with mimiji oroshi (diacon radish + chili flakes)
SO Simple, but so delicious. Just the beef texture and an amazing texture due to the quality of the beef. Melt in your mouth beef. Don't be fooled by the stuff claiming waygu... I think you have to come to Japan to taste the real thing... And you are going to have to bring your wallet too, because it will cost you. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Crazy thing is this was just one of the main courses at this restaurant, called Kokonotsuido. Add this to your to do lists #foodies and bring a friend who can speak Japanese :) #DJNeilArmstrongxFR #food #pommedesgarcons #leavingdishes #meat #foodporn #dinner #steak #bbq

foodrepublic The @djneilarmstrong #FRtakeover brings us back to #Tokyo Japan.  Besides Japan's love of burgers, their #pancake game is like no other. They love'em so much out here, that there is a pancake APP available, rating and showing all the pancake spots around Tokyo.You can get pancakes anytime of the day, breakfast, dinner and dessert. pictured above is the "small" portion of the Oven Baked Marshmellow Pancakes - (Butter + caramel sauce burnt marshmallow +) , with a scoop of ice creap to boot. the butter is slightly salty, and putting it all together is pretty delicious for my folk who got a sweet tooth. I'm honestly surprised I haven't seen this before . The flavors compliment each other just right. Head over here to get your own - http://accueil.co.jp/yokohama/pancake/index.html

Normal Food Republic
foodrepublic This one of my most memorable dishes I've had in Hong Kong for the @djneilarmstrong #frTakeover . The Flower crab / Uni with mitsuba (japanese wild parsley), presented in the crab shell over ice from @ronin_hk a japanese influenced spot by chef Matt Bergel and @lindsayjang . All of the food here is amazing - tastes delicious , looks spectacular - with a rotating menu depending on whats in season. If you are a fan of uni (sea urchin) and crab, well this dish is your heaven. Ronin is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in the world, and I've travelled a decent amount of it.

For more info go to http://www.roninhk.com and check out their sister restaurant @yardbirdhk.

foodrepublic A quick jaunt to Hong Kong on this @djneilarmstrong #FRtakeover. I know y'all love burgers so for my bacon lovers here is beef & liberty's bacon cheeseburger. Think they might have used a whole pig for this sandwich. #foodies #foodporn #pommedesgarcons #leavingdishes #meat #burgers #hongkong #hk #bacon #DJNeilArmstrongxFR 1w
