Bits & Bites

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.

My favorite dish in Tokyo

With so many wonderful vegan restaurants in Tokyo, it is hard to choose which one is my favorite, let alone which is my favorite dish. I decided I would settle on picking a favorite dish of the month so I would have no choice but to sample all the delicious vegan food I possibly could. My first spotlight will focus on the soymilk doria from T's Restaurant in Jiyugaoka. I have had this dish many times and it seriously doesn't get much better than this.
