Nishimuraya Honkan Kinosaki Onsen (城崎溫泉 西村屋本館): the ryokan and surroundings

Another year, another crab season.  Did you know the Matsuba Crab is only available from November to March every year?  I had an unforgettable experience at Nishimuraya Honkan in Kinosaki.  It was a splurge but it is worth every penny!  We were definitely spoiled by the food and the hospitality.

Kagiya (鍵屋) @ Ine-Cho ( 伊根町)

When I really love something, my friends would hear me talking about it non-stop.  Kagiya (鍵屋) in Ine-cho is one of those places.  It is not the easiest to get to  but it was so worth it.  I have been keeping it hush-hush on the blog but I always think about my experience there every year around this time.  If there is a next time, I will need to at least spend 2 nights there, with one day fully dedicated to fishing. :)
Ine is sometimes referred to "Venice of Japan" but a lot less known and much quieter.

[Taipei] Sushi Hui (鮨 蕙)

Sushi Hui (鮨蕙) was one of my favorite meals in Taipei this recent trip.  Located in a quiet alley, Sushi Hui is an Edo-mai style sushi restaurant that serves a limited number of customers every night.

[Taipei] RAW

RAW has been on my bucket list since the day it opened but reservations has been extremely difficult.  After pulling some strings, I finally got a reservation!  As one of Asia's best restaurant, RAW did not disappoint!  The ambiance, service, and flow were great!

[Sydney] four.ate.five

It's not that I don't write about my experiences with the restaurants in Sydney but I guess I never knew where to start...  Sydney does get old after four business trips within 2 consecutive years, with each trip lasting longer than the last...  Food is awesome here but I do find myself eating in, a lot!  (Service apartment with full kitchen spoils me.)  The produce is super fresh here so looking for good restaurants that won't break the bank became too much work!  LOL!  (I'd rather dine in and save up the money and go to a few high end restaurants.)
