りくろーおじさんの店 (Rikuro Cheesecake) (Osaka, Japan) 

rikuroojisan りくろーおじさんの店

My f*ucken god. MUST TRY THIS CHEESECAKE!! IT’S SO FLUFFY!! AND DELICIOUS!! When I saw the video on facebook about this cheesecake, I thought it is probably popular cause it wiggles but it taste amazing too! Holy! It was like eating air. There was only a hint of cheese flavor (and mostly egg taste) so it is more like a Cakecheese lol. With that said, if you like if for the cheese taste, I don’t think you will like it. But, of course, still try it!

There are 2 lines. One for freshly bake and the other is for already baked beforehand. Of course line up for the freshly baked one lol. (Hint: if you don’t know which one is the freshly baked line, go to the one with people lining up.) When it is done, they will ring the bell. Pretty cool. GET ONE!! or TWO!! (It was so good, we had it again when were leaving for Tokyo)

Ganko (Osaka, Japan)

The first picture was for dinner. It was the first night and it was close to 10pm and no where else was open (underground market). Ganko was the open place nearby that was open.  We just got the prettiest set that was on the menu lol. Everyone wanted sashimi so it was a win-win. The sashimi was very good. The nigiri was kinda standard, not surprised lol. But my friends were a little surprised that wasabi was inside the nigiri already (which is how it is supposed to be). It was funny to watch because they were already dipping soy sauce with wasabi in it, double dose. AHAHAHA

ganko1ganko2The second and third picture was for lunch. The tour group that we were in brought us there. ‘sigh’ if we had known, I would NOT have gone the night before for dinner. ‘sigh’ again. But the lunch set was very pretty (it was already picked out for you) as you can see. AND no that is NOT prosciutto lol it is raw pork for the ‘shabu shabu‘ (the boiling water is on the right, under the nigiri. You see it? Ok.) It was great. You had sashimi, nigiri, shabu shabu, small bites, dessert and then at the end, they gave out tenpura and miso soup. Yeah, they gave it out toward the end of the meal lol I thought that was pretty interesting since in US, those are the first thing that goes out.

Not sure if it is my picture taking skills but that DOES NOT look like food from IKEA (yea, the furniture store) lol. I do have to admit that the garlic bread is really good (I think they got the meatball from Costco cause it taste the same). Super cheap, so if you hungry and just want something to eat, try it.

Salada Beach Cafe

I never have/seen half an avocado on top of a lasagna before O.O Tasted delicious by the way. Now I always craved having avocado on everything. Whenever you can add an avocado, I do it, especially on burgers lol. Anyways, tasted really, really good. Felt like if I was a local, I would exercise or finish an errand and come here to have lunch. Highly recommend this place if you are around the area.

Wow, the interior of this place makes you feel like you enter a whole new world, more specifically the jungle! Very lively ambiance, feels like you can get up and dance and no one would care lol. First time eating legit Cuban food. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t really like it base on the menu and the food presentation but it actually tasted good. Definitely a must try lol if you don’t like Cuban food, go there to see the interior and experience the ambiance.
