emosbaugh, i wondered if you were pleased with heirloom la's catering for your wedding. any advice/suggestions with regards to using them? thanks!
The Orange County Korean BBQ threads are looking pretty outdated. I'm wondering what everyone's current favorites are. I'm leaning toward trying Shik Do Rak or Lighttown House...Somewhere that also serves a great Bibimbap would be ideal.
I'm going on my first trip to Tokyo at the end of this month. It's a solo trip, for pleasure, and I speak and read no Japanese.
I'll be staying at Sadachiyo ryokan in Asakusa. I've got a long list of must-trys narrowed down for once I'm settled, but wondered what everyone thought about that first, jet-lagged 24 hrs.
Assuming that once I finally find the ryokan I won't want to venture out too far my first night in Tokyo. Are there any restaurants in Asakusa that are favorites of fellow hounds? I jotted down Namiki Yabusoba, which appears to be in Asakusa somewhere...I'm open to anything (teppanyaki, yakitori, ramen, soba, etc) except for the insanely expensive. I'm sure I won't be feeling lucid enough to really appreciate a wildly expensive meal.
And then, the following morning...do you think that would be a good time to do sushi at the fish market? I mean, I assume I'll be up at 3 or 4AM anyway.
Many, many thanks...
