I haven’t posted anything in a while. If I want to be a known and widely read blogger – this might be a slight problem. I have a pretty good excuse though. My summer plans changed in 3 days and I had to take a plane across the world. I’ll tell you about that later.
The last couple of days I’ve been reminiscing on the time I spent in Japan. When I look back and think about it, in turned out to be one of the best trips in my life.
I miss the long sightseeing walks – I used to walk around 10 miles a day there.
I miss having sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner… Okay, you can add some udon noodles, Asian BBQ and little octopus balls on a stick to the menu. Actually, everything on a stick!
I miss respecting all the temples and the devotion of the Japanese people.
I miss the people – so helpful, warm and bighearted. So courteous and sophisticated!
I miss the pink Sakuras and the fat tuna.
I miss the orange Shinto temples and the fresh salmon.
I miss waking up in a new town, walking down unknown streets and trying extraordinary cuisine specialties.
I miss admiring the mixture of old and new in Tokyo, the thousand temples and samurai castles in Kyoto, the A-bomb tomb in Hiroshima, the street art in Osaka…
I miss matcha! Everything with matcha…
I couldn’t deal with my cravings any longer so I had to pay a visit to my favorite sushi place in Sofia – The Sushi bar. It’s located downtown near one of the famous streets – Vitosha. It’s relatively small, but cozy restaurant that offers comforting atmosphere and a high food quality. Among the menu you could find numerous kinds of sushi – sashimi (my personal fav), nigiri, unary, uramaki, futomaki, inari, hosomaki, salads, noodles, tempura, main dishes, deserts, two of the well known Japanese beers (Sapporo and Asahi) and of course, sake.
I love the place and I would definitely recommend it. So, if you’re around Sofia and feel like sushi – give it a try! If you feel like chocolate, give it a try as well! I had this heavenly matcha desert the other night…Yummy!
