Yakiniku at Shinjuku
Couple of weeks ago I went out for dinner with two of my French friends to have yakiniku in Shinjuku. As all French are Laura and Vincent are all about the food. Everything has to be discussed, carefully chosen and checked for ingredients. They constantly drive me crazy whenever I happen to eat or drink with them. I mean who asks a busy bartender in a packed live house for ingredients of every drink on the menu or “What kind of food there will be at a Halloween party?” or spend half an hour deciding on where and what to eat…Well this yakiniku dinner was no different. They were discussing the course and types of meat as it was some kind of global problem.
I like when food tastes good but it’s really very foreign to me to pay this much attention to it. I am one of those people who’d rather order something random from the menu than make a waitress wait for me while I am deciding on food. So it’s always a challenge for me to eat with French people hehe. But of course whenever I eat with them, I eat very good food. So this tiny Korean place we went to is Vincent’s favorite yakiniku shop. The food is cheap and really delicious and it comes with lots of free small dishes. I really loved it.
It was a nice evening too. We talked about literature and then back at Vincent’s place played French tarot cards. The game is very complicated but interesting, I lost every time, hehe.
