I am Fanny, graduated from UC Berkeley with an Architecture major. I started dining out more often when I was in college. That was the time when I started to notice that I eat a lot more Japanese food than other types of cuisines. Ramen is my favorite, and I also love Japanese street food, and kaiseki.


Introducing authentic Japanese food & culture to the world is my ultimate goal.  

After my first fine dining experience at Wako (San Francisco) as well as Sushi Sho (El Cerrito), I learn a lot about authentic Japanese food by simply experiencing them through a meal. From these high-quality meals, my standard and expectation from a restaurant became a lot of higher over time. I began my journey in exploring new Japanese food places and to find my best Japanese dining experience through this blog.

In 2016, I began my first trip to Japan. I fell more in love with their food and culture! I can't wait to share my experience and knowledge about Japan with you! (mainly food! ^_^)


I visited many Japanese restaurants and food places, but I tend not to "rate" them with star-system like Yelp. However, I do prioritize certain restaurants/chefs over others. These recommended restaurants are listed at MY FAV
