Food Republic  Eating. Drinking. Living. Tag #FRavorites 👻 foodrepublictv

When you’re wide awake in the middle of the night and need a snack, head on down to one of the many 24-hour Family Mart shops across town for a fried pork cutlet sandwich, which is warmed to order (vegetarians: check out the egg salad sandwiches instead). Both snacks are surprisingly good in spite of resembling vending machine food and the white bread seems to defy nature with its lightness. @katieparla #FRTakeover #FRFantasyTravel

Everyone says the meat in Japan will change your life, and it will if you try it at Toranoana, a yakiniku (grilled beef specialist) in Ebisu. The multi-course meal starts with sliced raw beef and raw liver, then moves on to the grilled items: tongue, various cuts of short rib, then hangar steak and innards. While the focus here is squarely on carnivorous bites, Toranoana doesn’t skimp on the veggies and the salad and vegetable side dishes were some of the best of the trip. @katieparla #FRTakeover #FRFantasyTravel

Under normal circumstances, drinking half a dozen cocktails in an hour would be a recipe for disaster. But @bar_gen_yamamoto’s 6-cocktail tasting menu is restrained, harnessing the finest seasonal ingredients and balancing them with fine Japanese spirits as in the freshly squeezed kumquat and sweet potato shochu drink above. @katieparla #FRTakeover #FRFantasyTravel

Wherever I travel, I always check out supermarkets and food halls to see how locals eat and shop. Located in the basement of the Tokyu Department Store near the east exit of Shibuya Station, Tokyo Food Show offers mind-boggling variety of gourmet products ranging from musk melons that will set you back a couple hundred bucks EACH to exquisitely marbled meat that is similarly luxurious. @katieparla #FRTakeover #FRFantasyTravel

Ginza Kagari’s tori paitan ramen features a thick and creamy chicken-based broth with noodles, perfectly cooked cabbage and carrot, and slices of tender chicken. You can add more toppings and flavors and on this brisk day I opted for the garlic butter, which intensified the already rich broth. @katieparla #FRTakeover #FRFantasyTravel #Lipitor
