Where I Go Out

Behind the Scenes

...Tsukiji market... In 1700’s
"...Tsukiji market... In 1700’s the fish market used to be called “uogashi” which was in another location. But, after a big earthquake it was destroyed and they moved to the current location in 1930’s. In past they used to let people come in and film, but they’ve got really strict over the years. It’s always bustling, I’ve heard few people get run over by these little transporters every year. Zoom in to the pic. This dude was ready to run over me. 😂 #Tsukiji #tsukijimarket #tokyo #ilovetokyo #hitandrun #flipthisdish! #flipthisdish #fishmarket #chefstravel #japantravel #ramentatsuya #ramentatsuyahouston #kemuritatsuya #streetphotography #candid #candidphotography #築地 #築地市場 #voightlander #colorskopar #東京"

Super thin for this style of ramen.

Flip this dish! In Tokyo.
"Flip this dish! In Tokyo. Ramen for breakfast!? Why not! Classic Tokyo ramen is chicken or pork based ramen with some dashi element. It’s lighter in the thickness of the soup and it’s soy flavor forward. Therefore most of the ramen shop uses their secret brand of soy sauce(in Japan, there are hundreds of soy makers) some shops blend the soy to get the flavor right.

This is “katsu curry” 🍛. Deep
"This is “katsu curry” 🍛. Deep fried pork cutlet topped with pork curry. Pork is breaded with coarse panko, fried twice with different temperatures for maximum juiciness. Pork broth is made by simmering bones, herbs and spices. They add dark roux for thickness and depth. It’s simmered for several hours. This thing is ugly but delicious. #uglydelicious #curry #katsu #porkcutlets #shnitzel #milanesas #katsucurry #かつ #カツカレー #ブサイク #うまいブサイク#カレー #ilovetokyo #tokyo #japan #chefstravels #gravy #iphone7plus"
