R.I.P. to those deceased in Tohoku

3.11 came again.

R.I.P. to those people in affected regions.

Have not done much to you, but will try to do what I can do.

Sorry, they didn't have sake from your region today.

Thinking of you.


Deep-Fried Tofu w/ Dashi Soup

Agedashi Dofu w/ Spring Vegetables
Had early lunch at Shonan Club- a local restaurant located 2 min. from Shimokitazawa Station.

When you arrive at Shimokitazawa Station, come out of West Exit.

Take a right and go up stairs to the ground level.

Take a right again and turn left at the first corner.  Keep walking to the end of the street.   There you will find a nicely decorated entrance to the Shonan Club.

You can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner there.   They open at 8:30 a.m.
Closed on Tuesdays.   On Saturdays and Sundays, they are closed after lunch through before dinner, say 5 p.m.  

They have reasonable lunch set menu, which is 1200 yen which includes lettuce salad, potato salad, main dish, rice, miso soup and a drink.   This photo is one of my favorite, deep-fried tofu with seasonal vegetables.    Flavorful Spring vegetables and tofu with dashi soup, you can enjoy UMAMI and feel so healthy.

At night ( although I have not seen them yet ) , Japanese raccoons come visit their garden.   You are lucky if you could see them.
