One of the great pleasures I've had over the years has been meeting up with other like-minded Food Bloggers....and at the top of my list is Kat from Our Adventures in Japan. We had met before in Osaka and on this trip, we wanted to make sure to touch bases again. This time, I chose the somewhat quirky; kinda country, rustic "Hunting Ground", Okariba which we really enjoyed the last time in Kyoto.
We had a nice walk over and met Kat and Satoshi. The place was much more busy than on our last visit.
After all, places like this were made for friends gathering, sharing "pupus".
You can read all about this in Kat's post....and it also shows how far behind I'm at with my travel posts as well!
So from here on; it's most it's mostly photos.
Man, I love basashi.....
At the end of the meal, we gave the owner some Mac Nuts....even though we were sure he wouldn't remember us, he'd given us so much samples on our previous visit, we wanted to make sure to show him our appreciation...so of course he busted out the home made ume-shu......
Okazaki Higashi-Tennocho 43-4, Residence Okazaki 1F
After dinner, we had a nice nightcap at another familiar place; Beer Komachi.......lot's of tourists and such....but with the San Diego beer connection menu....
It was a fun stop.
And I think it's a great reminder for Kat and Satoshi..........you can always come out here for a visit too!
Thanks for such a great time K&S!
