Every where, you see lots of zeroes. If you don’t know the currency exchange rate, RM30 is almost equivalent to 1000 yen, that is almost 10 US dollars.
And it is probably the only country in the entire world that has such small figures in their currency AND it does not mean a good thing.
Take Malaysia for example, if Singaporeans come to Malaysia, they spend like crazy, because 1 Sing Dollar is more than 2 Ringgits. They can spend twice that amount in Malaysia than when in Singapore.
Take Thailand for example, the Americans go to Thailand and spend like kings. USD10 = 350 baht. You can savour 7 good meals with that money.
The British goes to Indonesia, he will spend like an Emperor. Bring 50 quid and you are almost a millionaire! (53 GBP = 1,002,844 IDR)
But not in Japan. Uh huh.
Dining in Japan is like eating gold.
Yes!! Those are Gold you’re looking at.
THEY FREAKIN SPRINKLED REAL GOLD ON MY FOOD!!
OMG... I know about splurging. BUT THIS?!!!!!
COME ON! This is GOLD!!!!!
INTO MY MOUTH. MY STOMACH!! And eventually out into the TOILET!!!
HOHOHO. If Japan is not the country to splurge, I don’t know where is! I’m eating and dumping gold here!
Thin layers of beautiful gold sprinkled on this wonderfully aligned dish.
It is an exquisite dish serves in a Martini glass that cost 900 yen. Almost to RM30, for a tiny little martini dish!
A combination of Ikura, raw Mackerels, Sea Urchins and some seasonings sauce.
And it is HEAVENLY.
Nothing is cheap in Tokyo, Japan. Any single simple a la carte meal price starts at RM30 (or 1000 yen) and above. And I mean any. Not talking about expensive fine dining, just normal restaurant. If you order drinks and desserts, prepare to whip out at least RM100 for each meal of two at any one time.
I can’t buy you all those food, but what I can do is show u a teaser of what this Food Paradise has to offer.
Food~~~ I see food~~~~
If you are wondering,
No, gold does not have any taste!
