Bonenkai, which literally means “forget the year party” (bo=forget, nen=year, kai=party), is a Japanese tradition that takes place around December each year. Typically celebrated with friends and coworkers, it’s a way to commemorate the past year and almost always involves heavy drinking and/or eating. This year, the Foodie Adventure team decided to have our very own mini Bonenkai to celebrate all of our (well, mainly Gizem & Jackie’s) accomplishments this year. We ate, we drank, we took photos. Lots of them.
Tokyo Vegan Restaurant of the Month: Olu Olu Cafe
People often ask me what some of my go-to restaurants are here in Tokyo. Not only tourists but locals are curious as to where they can find delicious vegan food that will not break the bank. Ever since I started going to Olu Olu Cafe two years ago, I have whole-heartedly been recommending it to anyone and everyone.
